MILWAUKEE – Near West Side Partners representatives Michael R. Lovell of Marquette University, Tom Devine of the Potawatomi Business Development Corporation, Kelly Grebe of MillerCoors, Mike Lappin of Aurora Health Care and Matt Levatich of Harley-Davidson will be the featured guests in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 9 a.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Near West Side Partners is a recently formed non-profit with a mission to revitalize the Near West Side of Milwaukee—an area with important assets including iconic brands, some of Milwaukee’s largest major employers and historic neighborhoods. It also is an area with distinct challenges, including real and perceived safety issues, high unemployment and a lack of quality housing options.

Hear from the leaders of the anchor institutions that are spearheading the NWSP effort on their vision to transform the area and the progress they’ve made in the first year of the initiative. Lovell, Marquette’s president, will be joined by Levatich, President and CEO of Harley-Davidson; Grebe, Chief Legal and Corporate Services Officer at MillerCoors; Devine, CEO of Potawatomi Business Development Corporation; and Lappin, Chief Administrative Officer at Aurora Health Care.

Seating is at capacity; registration for a waiting list 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.
