MILWAUKEE–State Senator Chris Larson, a candidate for Milwaukee County Executive in the April 5 Spring election, spoke out in support of rebuilding the Mitchell Park Domes at a public forum Wednesday.

Members of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors hosted the forum at Mitchell Park.

Senator Larson was one of dozens of people to speak at the forum. Said Larson:

“If elected leaders can afford to spend millions on an arena for out-of-state billionaires, we can afford to preserve and protect cultural institutions important to our community.

Every family deserves access to a quality park. That’s our legacy, and that’s my promise.”

The current county executive has refused to commit to long-term solutions to the crumbling Domes, proposed band-aid solutions. Senator Larson is committed to repairing to the Mitchell Park Domes for future generations if he is elected.
