Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will be the featured guest of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Jan. 20, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

On the eve of a pivotal Milwaukee Common Council vote, Barrett will make his case for the proposed Milwaukee streetcar project. While opponents call the project an unnecessary expense for a city facing more-pressing issues, Barrett says the streetcar is an important transportation option that will spur economic development and help attract young, talented workers to the city.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
