Statement from Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele on State Sentator Larson’s announcement of candidacy for County Executive.

“I welcome State Senator Larson’s decision to run for County Executive.

I’m a firm believer more democracy and people engaging in our government is a good thing. I look forward to the added opportunity to talk with voters about how we’re turning the corner in Milwaukee County and getting our fiscal house in order after years of uncertainty and mismanagement prior to my taking office.

The budget I have just given to my partners, the County Board, reflects how in five years we have gone from questions about the County’s existence to being able to craft a fiscally responsible budget that creates economic opportunity, expands services, and rewards the hard work of our employees without raising taxes. Looking to the future I am more confident than ever our budgets will continue these investments and address some of the most difficult issues in our community.”

One thought on “Statement from Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele”

  1. David Ciepluch says:

    Chris Abele cannot be trusted. He has rarely spoken with common people in town hall style meetings to share ideas and advice for an exchange and learning process. Abele has shown no interest in what people in the community would like. Abele started out in his position with great expectations from many of us and has betrayed that trust and our vote.

    I will do everything I can to support Chris Larson and oppose election of Abele.
