Leading Milwaukee forward – together
Statement of Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II - November 28, 2017
Today a majority of the Common Council took a firm and united stand in overriding mayoral budget vetoes affecting badly needed police staffing, housing improvement and beautification programs, and a much needed disparity study.
By passing the disparity study, the Council stood together and put “politics as usual” behind us, sending a message that we are moving Milwaukee forward in a bold and fresh new way that allows all of our residents to thrive.
By our action today we maintained five recruits to a key police recruiting class and $165,000 to a Neighborhood Investment Beautification Program targeting outer neighborhoods and a new cleanup initiative named in honor of fallen city DNS inspector of Greg “Ziggy” Zyszkiewicz, who was killed on the job earlier this year.
Again, I want to thank my colleagues for their strength and heart in standing up for what our city and our constituents deserve.
