Adams thanks new Mental Health Care Board
The newly appointed Milwaukee Mental Health Board met for the first time yesterday.
July 18, 2014 – – Milwaukee, Wisconsin – – Yesterday, members of the newly appointed Milwaukee Mental Health Board met for the first time at the Milwaukee Mental Health Complex. The unpaid board is the result of a long overdue reform that removed political meddling from the delivery of mental health services. Earlier this year, the legislature voted 122-1 in favor of creating the board. Dan Adams, candidate for the Wisconsin Assembly, was the only candidate for the 19th Assembly District who openly supported the reform bill from its outset.
Adams released the following statement thanking the new board:
As a citizen who is deeply concerned about Milwaukee’s mentally ill residents, I would like to thank the members of the board for volunteering to perform this invaluable public service. I am optimistic that your efforts will result in better policies being implemented in the very near future.
Dan Adams is a Democratic candidate for the 19th State Assembly District representing the East Side, Downtown, Third Ward, Bay View, and Riverwest neighborhoods. Dan is a private practice attorney in Milwaukee and is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School.
