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!!
