(MILWAUKEE) – Three Milwaukee County Supervisors said today that they voted for the dismissal of Corporation Counsel because the Board has lost confidence in her ability to perform neutrally and serve Milwaukee County with appropriate and independent legal counsel.
“This is not about personalities, this is not about race, this is not about the Board’s relationship with the County Executive, this is about our confidence in the Corporation Counsel’s ability to represent Milwaukee County. We believe Corporation Counsel cannot perform neutrally.
“She abdicated her responsibility on an issue that affects the very heart of the Board’s ability to govern. The fact that she herself said there might be a perception of a conflict of interest in interpreting Act 14 – several times on the record – indicates that she does not believe the Board trusts her to represent them. We don’t.”
