Discrimination Resolution Nothing More than Campaign Style Rhetoric
"President Trump has only been in office for a few days and we need to give him a chance to bring the country together before launching into attacks on him."
MILWAUKEE – A resolution that will come before the Health and Human Needs Committee of the Milwaukee County Board on Wednesday, January 25, claims to take action against discrimination but is merely a list of items over which the Board has little to no control or authority.
Supervisor Steve F. Taylor opposes discrimination in all forms but does not support the resolution because it is nothing more than political posturing for the benefit of select special interest groups.
Supervisor Taylor provided the following statement:
“This resolution is a wish list of liberal causes that have nothing to do with the business of Milwaukee County.
“Election season is over and this kind of campaign style rhetoric won’t bring people together at a time when we need to find common ground.
“President Trump has only been in office for a few days and we need to give him a chance to bring the country together before launching into attacks on him.
“It’s not the place of the County Board to engage in political posturing in an attempt to satisfy every liberal special interest group just because they lost an election.”
