Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Dimitrijevic Statement on LRB 1340/2
We have just seen the bill draft for the first time today, and there are clearly new provisions in this version of the bill never before discussed.
Milwaukee – Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic has issued the following response after reviewing the latest version of bill LRB 1340/2.
We have just seen the bill draft for the first time today, and there are clearly new provisions in this version of the bill never before discussed. While I reserve judgment so I can carefully review all its implications, there are a number of items that rise to my attention. I think the most important discussion to have regarding this new draft is what is the purpose of these new changes? Who benefits from them, and what purpose does each of them serve?
Supervisors can all agree that we are not in the business of managing the day to day operation of the departments. However, one of the sole purposes of the legislative branch of government is to serve our constituents and act as a legislative body.
We will continue to move forward with our commitment to have a real local discussion about real countywide reform, and we welcome putting these new provisions to a public discussion.
