Milwaukee County Deserves Better

MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele released the following statement today in response to a story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Supervisor Deanna Alexander has been intimidated by Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic and other Supervisors for supporting significant reform of the County Board.
Alexander says she was also told not to talk to reporters and she says she has not been allowed to use taxpayer-funded County Board staff to work on a reform plan.
“Last April more than 80% of voters in 12 Milwaukee County municipalities called for significant change of the County Board. It’s disappointing that instead of taking action, the Chairwoman and some Supervisors continue to fight against real reform and punish those who want to move in that direction.
While Supervisor Alexander and I don’t agree on every issue, her willingness to have a dialogue on County Board reform is what the Board should be all about.”
