Milwaukee, WI — After Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander this week publicly posted information about her experiences with County Supervisor Steve Taylor’s bad behavior, more elected officials and county residents have courageously stepped forward, willing to tell of their own experiences.

  • Milwaukee County Supervisor Dan Sebring, District 11

“I have no doubts in the veracity of recent statements made by Supervisor Deanna Alexander regarding our colleague, Supervisor Steve Taylor. In the short time I’ve known Supervisor Taylor, I have come to know him as mean-spirited, vindictive and one that takes pleasure in intimidating, verbally, and mentally abusing those who dare to disagree with him. On more than one occasion he has attempted to intimidate me too. While Supervisor Taylor’s voting record will show him to be what I consider “on the right side of the issue” more often than not, I find his demeanor and personal conduct on the board floor, in committee, and in private to be, in my opinion, inappropriate for one who holds public office, which is why I support his political opponent, Patti Logsdon.”

– Dan Sebring, Milwaukee County Supervisor – District 11, March 29, 2018

  • Greendale Village Trustee Sally Ann Chadwick

“Several years ago, I started attending some meetings in Franklin when the subject of the Ballpark Commons was on the agenda. The ball park has and continues to have a profound effect on the citizens of Greendale with glaring bright lights, blaring loud music, a complete lack of concern over environmental issues that may affect the downhill slopes into the Root River & Greendale – as well as a grave lack of parking spilling over into Greendale neighborhoods.  When our Greendale citizens stand before the Franklin Common Council to ask their questions, give their concerns, ask for help from their next-door community, there is one thing that stands out as a glaring rebuttal – Alderman and Supervisor Steve Taylor. He continually bashes, humiliates, taunts, and laughs at the concerns of citizens. I have not only witnessed this glaring attitude toward Greendale, but also to his own Franklin citizens, fellow councilmen & Mayor Olson. Another specific incident I recall was while I attended a County Parks meeting regarding the Ball Park Commons development. As one of the Parks Committee members, Steve Taylor immediately interrupted, taunted and laughed at a Greendale citizen’s inquiry. His rude, unethical taunt was halted only when chairman Jason Haas stopped him and rebuked him for his behavior. Why Milwaukee County tolerates such a bully as Steve Taylor is awful and incomprehensible.  Why the city of Franklin citizens, council member & mayor tolerate such a bully as Steve Taylor is horrific. Milwaukee County and specifically his district of Franklin, Oak Creek, and Hales Corners deserve better and Greendale will no longer tolerate the bully Steve Taylor. I stand with Deanna Alexander in calling out Steve Taylor and hope the residents of his district will approve his opponent, Patti Logsdon to better represent them going forward.”

– Sally Ann Chadwick, Greendale Village Trustee, March 29, 2018

  • Resident Mary Draginis

“Me Too: I have watched Steve Taylor disrespect citizens and been a victim of his bullying.”

– Milwaukee County Resident Mary Draginis, March 29, 2018

  • Resident Gianfranco Zingales

“I have witnessed Steve Taylor’s bullying many times in Milwaukee County and Franklin meetings.”

– Milwaukee County Resident Gianfranco Zingales, March 29, 2018

  • Resident Joy Draginis-Zingales

“Me Too: I have witnessed and been a victim of Steve Taylor’s bullying and disrespect many times over about the last four years.”

– Milwaukee County Resident Joy Draginis-Zingales, March 29, 2018

  • Resident Bryan Maersch

“Steve Taylor has personally come after me using his County Supervisor position, contacting my employer in an attempt to have me fired for personal political blogs I wrote revealing the truth about him. He is vindictive, and has written false emails to Franklin Aldermen about me to prevent renewal of my membership to a City of Franklin Technology Commission as appointed by the Mayor. With Steve Taylor, its either agree with him or he will run you over.”

– Milwaukee County Resident Bryan Maersch, March 30, 2018
