MILWAUKEE – Following is a statement from Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele on the City of Milwaukee’s vote today to approve financing for the Milwaukee Bucks arena.

“Even when negotiations were tough, I never stopped advocating for a deal that would ensure all of Milwaukee, across all socioeconomic lines, would benefit from our partnership with the City and the Milwaukee Bucks, and today that deal has become a reality.

“The Park East is now finally and officially on its way to generating millions of dollars in economic activity and creating thousands of good-paying jobs for Milwaukee – and the construction of the new arena is only the beginning of the economic boom we will experience as a result of this deal.
