I was deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Gary Grunau – a visionary leader for Milwaukee who led the city on so many key development deals. His acumen and leadership played a big part in making so many important developments happen, including the Schlitz Park office complex, the RiverWalk and the Convention Center.

During my years of service as an alderman I found Gary to be an engaged, passionate and thoughtful business leader – and a good person.

May he rest in peace and I offer my sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
