On the public service of Vel Phillips
Statement of Alderman Jim Bohl - April 18, 2018
I have fond memories of interactions over the years with Ms. Vel Phillips, and with her passing my condolences go out to her loved ones and friends.
Ms. Phillips possessed the determination and will to never budge from her goals and her principles, and she arrived on Milwaukee’s political and civic scene at the right moment in history. She was a true pioneer and Milwaukeeans will always owe her a debt of gratitude for her work on the Fair Housing Ordinance and on many other issues.
Her example of active and forthright public service – as well as her legacy of achievement – will live on for generations.
