Election is Over: Time to Focus on Real Issues Facing Milwaukee County
"The resolution is a grab bag of liberal causes that have nothing to do with the business of Milwaukee County."
MILWAUKEE – Supervisor Steve F. Taylor opposed a politically charged resolution adopted by the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors Thursday that included a grab bag of liberal causes. The assortment of issues included several items over which the board has not authority or influence.
Supervisor 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:
“The resolution is a grab bag of liberal causes that have nothing to do with the business of Milwaukee County.
“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.
“I work for the people of Milwaukee County, and not a political party, and it’s time for us to start focusing on the critical issues facing the residents of Milwaukee County.”

“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.”
