Milwaukee – The Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors today voted 9-7 in favor of the resolution seeking authority from the Wisconsin State Legislature to reduce the number of Milwaukee County Supervisors prior to the next decennial census.

Following the approval of the resolution, Supervisor Taylor issued the following statement:

“I have been a proponent of reforming the Milwaukee County Board since I was a candidate for the Board. I am glad to see that the majority of my colleagues are on the same page with respect to this resolution and its intent. It is important to note that in addition to creating a more efficient county government, this resolution aims to ensure appropriate minority representation on the County Board, reflective of the diversity we see throughout Milwaukee County. Its approval is a step in the right direction and should the State Legislature provide us with the tools to downsize, I hope that other members of the County Board who share my vision will not hesitate to proceed with appropriate steps towards meaningful reform.”
