Murder of city worker hits close to home

Statement from Alderman Tony Zielinski March 24, 2017

The senseless murder Wednesday afternoon of City of Milwaukee Department of Neighborhood Services inspector Greg “Ziggy” Zyszkiewicz hits very close to me, because he resided in my district – the 14th Aldermanic District. My sincere condolences go to his family, and I ask anyone who wishes to offer support to the family to make a donation to the OLHA D ZYSZKIEWICZ DONATION ACCOUNT (checks should be made out to that title). Donations can be made at any US Bank location.

The loss of Mr. Zyszkiewicz is a tragedy to my district, to the City of Milwaukee family, and especially to everyone who worked with him and knew him. He was a very highly regarded and dedicated city worker who loved his job and wanted to keep working even though he was eligible to retire.

For me, the sad irony of this murder cannot be understated: City workers like Mr. Zyszkiewicz are dedicated to making sure families and children, people young and old, are kept safe from harm, and that their quality of life is enhanced. He was doing a job to help people in that neighborhood on Wednesday (and wherever else in the city he worked), and that is just one of the tragic ironies about his death.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to please contact the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360.

    This is HORRIBLE! This good and decent man who served the City of Milwaukee shot in the head by a punk who has nothing to live for! This is why we need the death penalty in WI! This youngster was just another product of promiscuity- a mother breeding over and over again . The boy was not nurtured or cared for because it was more important for Baby – Mommy to have her harem of boyfriends. Still think the Christian message not needed in society ? What r needed are FATHERS in the Inner City and MOTHERS who value their children more than a slew of boyfriends. WHY WAS THIS BOY IN ONE GROUP HOME AFTER ANOTHER? WHERE WERE HIS PARENTS? THIS is what parental neglect creates! It creates an uncontrollable monster like this young man! And the Inner City is full of them!!!! Where were the parents of Dontre Hamilton, who complain that their son was ignored by”the system”. Hey..Ms. Hamilton – WHY WAS YOUR SON OUT SLEEPING IN THE STREET? WHERE WERE YOU,MOM? WHY WEREN’T YOU TAKING CARE OF YOUR SON? WHY DO YOU BLAME OTHERS? The whole idea of a family is to protect and nuture. When that nest is destroyed by promiscuity, what you get is a creature like the one who murdered poor Mr. Zyszkiewicz.
