Discrimination Resolution Nothing More than Campaign Style Rhetoric
"President Trump has only been in office for a few days and we need to give him a chance to bring the country together before launching into attacks on him."
MILWAUKEE – A resolution that will come before the Health and Human Needs Committee of the Milwaukee County Board on Wednesday, January 25, claims to take action against discrimination but is merely a list of items over which the Board has little to no control or authority.
Supervisor Steve F. Taylor opposes discrimination in all forms but does not support the resolution because it is nothing more than political posturing for the benefit of select special interest groups.
Supervisor Taylor provided the following statement:
“This resolution is a wish list of liberal causes that have nothing to do with the business of Milwaukee County.
“Election season is over and this kind of campaign style rhetoric won’t bring people together at a time when we need to find common ground.
“President Trump has only been in office for a few days and we need to give him a chance to bring the country together before launching into attacks on him.
“It’s not the place of the County Board to engage in political posturing in an attempt to satisfy every liberal special interest group just because they lost an election.”

“This will go a long way in helping families, especially children, avoid long and drawn out cases.”
“I also encourage County Executive Chris Abele, who attended today’s meeting, to work with the County Board to help solve this County’s problems locally instead of running to Madison to consolidate his power.”
Milwaukee County’s next required redistricting process will occur in 2020, following the federal decennial census.
“This decision flies in the face of the principles of the good stewardship of taxpayer dollars.”
“This is a common-sense measure that will help to restore faith and transparency in Milwaukee County’s redistricting procedure.”
