It’s Official, Fonz Funding Complete
I’ve been in support of the statue since I first learned of it because it encourages visitors (who come to Milwaukee for completely unrelated reasons) to stay downtown, walk downtown, and spend their money downtown. One more thing for Milwaukee visitors to do.
- Mary Louise Schumacher is still opposed to the statue because it’s too trivial.
- The Associated Press has an article that sums up what is happening, and even mentions Brenner leaving town.
The best part of the entire thing is that Henry Winkler and company held a press conference to announce the completed funding in front of the Culver’s at the Shops of Grand Avenue. Couldn’t they find a slightly better location?
