“City of Milwaukee family” mourning the loss of a dedicated member

Statement of Alderman Terry L. Witkowski March 23, 2017

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Greg “Ziggy” Zyszkiewicz, a City of Milwaukee building inspector who was shot in the course of performing his duties yesterday.

As someone who’s been part of this city’s government for 45 years, I know that the pain and grief of Greg’s murder is being felt across all city departments by fellow city staff members. I share in that pain, but it is nothing compared to what Greg’s loved ones must be feeling right now. His loss is a terrible tragedy for them, and for the community at large.

If you ask his friends and colleagues in the Department of Neighborhood Services, they will tell you that Greg’s love for his job was surpassed only by his dedication to it. Greg’s sort of attitude and work ethic represent the best that our City of Milwaukee family has to offer to our citizens.

As civil servants, thousands of city employees like Greg strive to serve the best interests and well-being of every citizen of Milwaukee. An attack on one of our city employees is an attack on the general welfare of the city.

I would urge anyone who has information about this cowardly crime to contact police immediately so that we can pursue justice for Greg and his family.
