(MILWAUKEE) – Milwaukee County Board Supervisor David Bowen said today that he supports Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic and said calls for her resignation are “a distraction from the real issues facing Milwaukee County such as transit funding and preservation of Milwaukee County parks. Just when the Board passes local reforms 15-3 to push our County forward, supporters of the over reaching AB85 make false claims to halt the County’s progress.”

“At a crucial time when the Board faces many important issues, we are instead involved in a game of inside baseball over who should be leading us,” Bowen said. “I applaud the job that Chairwoman Dimitrijevic has done for this County, and I wholeheartedly support her as Chairwoman.”
