The City of Milwaukee mourns a dedicated civil servant

I join my Common Council colleagues, thousands of city employees and residents throughout Milwaukee in mourning Greg “Ziggy” Zyszkiewicz, a dedicated employee of the Department of Neighborhood Services who was shot and killed while on the job yesterday. All of our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this terrible time.

If anyone has information about this crime that will help bring the shooter to justice, I would urge them to reach out immediately to the Milwaukee Police Department.

I got to know Ziggy through the special enforcement division of the Department of Neighborhood Services. He accompanied me on a number of neighborhood walks throughout my district, offering his expertise and helping with enforcement issues.

But you really get to know a guy personally when you walk and talk for hours, and I know that above all else, Ziggy was a good man who loved his family, and he was a dedicated civil servant who loved his job. He really cared about the City of Milwaukee and its residents, and he devoted his career to making this a better city for everyone. He will be deeply missed.
