In the interest of transparency eight Common Council members are making the attached letter available to the public. It calls on Milwaukee’s City Attorney to give an opinion on the legality of Paul Nannis’ employment status. Mr. Nannis was appointed Commissioner of the Milwaukee Health Department by Mayor Tom Barrett and has reportedly already reported for work, but his appointment has not been confirmed by the full Common Council.

Mr. Nannis is a private citizen with access to health information and several Council members believe this could pose a liability risk.

President Ashanti Hamilton, Alderman Robert Donovan, Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II, Alderman Khalif Rainey, Alderman Mark Borkowski, Alderman Jose G. Perez, Alderwoman Chantia Lewis, and Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs all signed the attached letter
