MILWAUKEE, WI. —  For over 15 years Tom has acted as Mayor of Milwaukee and as he seeks a fifth term, the voters and media need to hold him accountable for the following disparities that have occurred under his watch:

  • Last week, the financial site 24/7 determined Milwaukee is the worst city in America for black people due to poverty, homeownership, and joblessness.
  • Milwaukee has one of the highest incarceration rates per capita in the country.
  • City employees are flocking to the suburbs in hopes of a better education systems and safer neighborhoods.
  • We have a clean water catastrophe with lead levels that are higher than Flint, MI.
  • Many of our roads are in complete disrepair.
  • Property taxes are up and homeownership is down.
  • Unprecedented gun crimes and traffic injuries and deaths

We are in crisis and I am calling upon every person in the city to join me in the movement to better serve Milwaukee!

“As your mayor, I promise to cleanse the internal structures of our broken systems and hold everyone in leadership positions to the highest level of accountability. I have a plan to create 1000’s of well paying, sustainable opportunities in the areas of urban agriculture and education.”

Under Lena Taylor’s administration, we will encourage homeownership where safe communities and the beautification of neighborhoods and roads will be a top priority. Serving and protecting all citizens is of the utmost importance for social justice and a civilized society and we must do better.

Times Up Tom!!

11 thoughts on “Eyes on Milwaukee: Zielinski Will Run for Mayor”

  1. Ted Chisholm says:

    History is not in his favor, even if you look beyond Donovan. George Watts and David Clarke ran well-funded conservative campaigns in 2000 and 2004 – with a more conservative electorate going to the polls – and neither came close to winning. By announcing on this note, Zielinski won’t be able to shake the conservative tag, and even though his popularity crosses party lines in his district, it accounts for less than 7% of the city’s population. He’ll have to convince the remaining 93% that he isn’t a right-wing reactionary, which may be a tough sell given his performance on the County Board.

  2. Tom says:

    Good news! 14th district gets rid of this tool and Mayor Barrett gets an easy re-election. Win Win.

  3. Lou Rugani says:

    This man would consider destroying transit.
    Enough said right there about such a candidate.

  4. steve says:

    I believe he will lose his own district if he is up against Barrett.

  5. Aaron says:

    We are in grave danger if Zielinski or Donovan ever take office as mayor of this great city. I don’t believe that they are evil, but very misguided. (…with bad attitudes)

  6. Jeff w. says:

    Agree with Tom. Zelinski would not win district 14 if he ran again. A wolf in sheepskin. Can’t wait to get rid of this opportunist politician.

  7. Kenneth says:

    Oh oh pitiful me…Mister Z is bad enough for Bayview! He represents the white only element down there. Careful!

  8. Michael Schwister says:

    The Police Union represents a single issue. Milwaukee has a multitude of issues and rebuilding a modern city with modern infrastructure to keep and attract the younger generations is vital to SE Wisconsin. There is no future in the constant barrage from the disgusting use of wealth by the Bradley Foundation and it’s gasbag network of disinformation and polarization that comes with it. It’s not socialism that is scary. It’s facism in the union ranks that bother me.

  9. Joey says:

    Another Walker wanna-be. He will destroy Milwaukee but build up the occupying force called the MPD.

  10. Tom says:

    Scary thought: What if Barrett decides not to run for re-election? Who in local politics beats Tony Z?
    Can we convince John Gurda to run?

  11. MARY GLASS says:

    December 4, 2017

    The place he chose to make his announcement – Milwaukee Police Association – has a historic black mark that has not improved over the years for African American and People of Color – the MAJORITY of the Electorates in Milwaukee.

    Flashback of brutality, mistreatment, discrimination, disrespect, US DOJ study, and murders of African American and People of Color has yet a bad taste. His pledge to a 21st Century police chief is too generic and does not speak to the NEEDS of Milwaukeeans. Then there is the lack of seriousness of quality of life and economic development to replace the mired condition of Enduring Concentrated Poverty. There was NO mention of Broadband Internet, Incarceration Reform and public transportation for the working unemployed and working underemployed. Over the two years, he has much to do to WIN.
