Supervisor Gerry Broderick Criticizes Gov. Scott Walker’s Support of Mental Health Bill
Milwaukee County Supervisor Gerry Broderick issued the following statement regarding Gov. Scott Walker’s support of a mental health “reform” bill currently being considered in the Legislature.
“Gov. Scott Walker’s recent comments comparing Milwaukee County’s mental health system with a ‘natural disaster’ should remind us all of the potential mental health plan he proposed as County Executive to house Milwaukee County’s mental health programs at the old – and now razed – St. Michael Hospital. That foolish idea cost the County a few years of delay in taking on sensible reforms of the system – a fact the major media have conveniently ignored in their criticisms of the Milwaukee County Board’s actions on the issue. The fact is, the Board has consistently worked to improve the mental health system, and if the system is a ‘natural disaster’ as Walker says, he can take the blame for it.”
