Sebring Calls for End to Closure of Businesses
MILWAUKEE – After Governor Evers announced today the Safer at Home order could be extended into June, Milwaukee County Supervisor Dan Sebring has called for an end to the order, citing the unsustainable damage to business and far-reaching restrictions on individual liberties.
“To date 0.17 percent of America’s population has been infected by the coronavirus. That means 0.007 percent of America’s population has died from the coronavirus. Governor Evers’ Executive Order 72 (The Safer-at-Home Order), County Executive’s COVID-19 Emergency Orders, and following COVID-19 related orders are a grossly disproportionate and unnecessary response to the reality of the current health situation that violates individual liberties and constitutionally guaranteed rights,” said Sebring.
According to coronavirus data by county from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services accessed on April 15th, Milwaukee County has 1,795 confirmed cases, the most of any county in the state. Nationally, county data from John Hopkins University indicates that Milwaukee County is not in the top 50 counties with confirmed cases.
“Conditions that would justify the governor’s actions never actually existed. As the rest of America prepares to ‘open up’, Wisconsin prepares to extend the draconian measures that will spell the doom of any and all commerce in Wisconsin. I call upon Governor Evers and County Executive Chris Abele to immediately rescind the draconian measures put in place as a result of the so-called ‘crisis’. Wisconsin and Milwaukee County can’t wait,” concluded Sebring.
Supervisor Sebring represents the 11th District on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.
