Gun Violence Forum Looks for Solutions
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele will join Oak Creek Mayor Steve Scaffidi, Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards and U.S. Attorney James Santelle for a forum on gun violence tomorrow.
The forum, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Saturday from 3 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at East Middle School in Oak Creek.
“In the wake of the shooting in Newtown as well as the violence at the Oak Creek Sikh Temple and the Brookfield Salon we need to look at making changes,” Abele said.
Mayor Scaffidi, who is hosting the event, said “Our goal here is not to solve the problem in one day, but rather to begin to communicate ideas that could make a positive impact on violence.”
Members of the Sikh temple as well as experts in violence and mental health are also expected to take part in the conversation.
