Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele has been appointed to the Wisconsin Campaign to Fix the Debt committee. The bipartisan committee is part of the national Campaign to Fix the Debt; an effort launched this summer to help find a balanced approach to fixing the national debt.

“As County Executive, I’m focused on putting Milwaukee County on a sustainable economic path. A big part of that is getting a handle on our massive long term debt,” Abele said. “It’s exciting to be part of this bipartisan movement that is looking to do the same on a national level.”

Abele and other Democrats are joined on the Wisconsin committee by Republicans from across the state.
