Aldermen ask Mayor Barrett to step down if he enters race for Governor
Media advisory and letter from Alderman Bob Donovan and Alderman Mark A. Borkowski
Alderman Donovan, chair of the Public Safety and Health Committee, said the “right choice” for the mayor would be to step aside should he enter the race for Governor.
“Given our many challenges and issues here in Milwaukee, we need a full-time mayor managing the city’s affairs all day and every day,” he said. “What we don’t need is a distracted mayor who is in constant campaign mode.”
In part the letter states: “Too many agencies of this City’s government have been roiled by scandal and mismanagement in recent months for this community to be able to afford a mayor with his mind and energy divided between the duties of his office and what promises to be a bruising political campaign.”
