Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee County Board Supervisors Borkowski, Taylor, Alexander, Weishan and Schmitt today issued the following joint statement:

“This morning, we submitted our petition to the Milwaukee County Clerk calling for the resignation of the current Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic and requesting a special meeting of the Milwaukee County Board for the purpose of electing the new Chairperson. Unfortunately, our petition has fallen short of the required 12 signatures to convene the meeting, with only five original petition sponsors having signed the document. We aim to continue to fight for this cause as we believe that the current County Board leadership should be held accountable for well-documented wrong-doings it allowed to take place under its watch. It is somewhat disappointing to see that the rest of our colleagues do not share this opinion.”
