MILWAUKEE – Rep. David Bowen (D-Milwaukee), who grew up in the Sherman Park neighborhood and understands the value of the park to the community, released the following statement calling on Sheriff David Clarke to reopen Sherman Park:

“Less than two months ago, the sheriff denied requests to have deputies patrol Sherman Park, saying the park is ‘the safest place’ in the area.

“Eliminating public access to Sherman Park, the safest part of the neighborhood according to the sheriff, has been an unnecessary and potentially provocative measure during an incredibly sensitive time. It is time for the sheriff to reverse his poor decision and restore full public access to Sherman Park.”
