“Today we all celebrate that the Bucks are staying in Milwaukee, but tomorrow and for the next 20 years taxpayers must pay the tab Chris Abele ran up. The Bucks recently paid above market value in private transactions, but when it comes to land owned by taxpayers, Chris Abele chose not to hold them to the same standard.”

One thought on “Taxpayers Must Pay the Tab Chris Abele Ran Up”

  1. Martha Linz says:

    Why is supervisor Lipscomb so concerned about Abele’s land sale costs to taxpayers but support repair & decades of maintenance of the Estabrook Dam for the benefit of a handful of riverside property owners instead of the much less costly & more eco-friendly demolition & development of a wildlife haven that would increase nearby property values dramatically at no cost to the rest of Milwaukee County taxpayers?
