Milwaukee City Attorney Grant F. Langley announced today that he is seeking another four-year term as the City’s lawyer.

“This is an exciting time for the City of Milwaukee. The Arena and other major projects present unique legal issues, but the City also faces serious challenges.  Milwaukee needs a steady, experienced and above all, independent lawyer to guide it through these legal challenges.  I would be honored if the voters would allow me to continue in that role.”

First elected in 1984, and re-elected by substantial margins seven times since, Langley has served a record 32 years as City Attorney.   He has recently received lifetime achievement awards from the American Bar Association and the International Municipal Lawyers Association.

    We need a NEW person at city hall to serve the families via the government (executive-legislative-judicial branches) at city hall as CITY ATTORNEY.

    Where are the other people in the city that are in the legal profession, sharp and see how their talent would help create efficency – integrity, due diligence and TRUSTWORTHINESS?

    Incumbent Grant Langley is one of the members of the present city government – charter officers presently serving that “NEED to be REPLACED”. Mr. Langley is OUT OF TOUCH – DISRESPECTFUL OF INQUIRIES TO OFFICE – ARROGANT – Untrustworthy.

    There is something to be said that perpetuate the ARROGANCE and DISRESPECT of Grant Langley.

    It is allowing his unworthiness to continue to hold this office. We need NEW BLOOD. Someone that will run this department of city government with a sense of urgency for 2016-2020, worthy of TRUST and BEST PRACTICES in fulfilling the representation of the city of Milwaukee in legal and professional services that will promote efficiency AND promote an INCLUSIVE culture.

    Not only is Grant Langley, city attorney, arrogant and fail to respect inquiries and/or calls, so are his attorneys on the front-line.

    THEY DO NOT RETURN CALLS. They talk fast and irresponsive in dialog. They fail to provide clarity and importance of the office and what we pay them to do – OR, to explain what they do.

    At this time, we need an AUDIT of this office for due diligence and practices. We can start with the 2010-11 Disparity Report for the city of Milwaukee, city attorney representative RECOMMENDATIONS and REPORTS that works with RACM, the city tow lot and parking tickets REVENUE STREAM AND COMPLAINTS, municipal court fines and the city attorney representative that prepares documentation for the License Committee. These are ALL big time frisking and ATMing of the People.

    There MUST BE SOME ONE ELSE with better credentials. Yes. Urban Milwaukee, you said he has been in office 32 years. He needs to go.

    “This is an exciting time for the City of Milwaukee. The Arena and other major projects present unique legal issues, but the City also faces serious challenges. Milwaukee needs a steady, experienced and above all, independent lawyer to guide it through these legal challenges. I would be honored if the voters would allow me to continue in that role.” Grant Langley, City Attorney

    Yes. It is challenging for the people that own the treasury – city coffers. They continue to pay through the nose.

    They are the ones that have been pimped and now trapped in a 30-year Involuntary Servitude of taxes for the NBA Buck Mega Greed Deal. We, the People, need some one “steady – TRUSTWORTHY”, current in thinking and representing the People’s business while working with the executive-legislative-judicial branches – that will create the independent legal representative that is needed.

    We do not need a continuation of someone “self-centered” and “been in a position of power of the city of Milwaukee” TOO LONG. I am sure he would be honored. I bet he would. WE JUST CAN NOT AFFORD HIM.
