MILWAUKEE – The finalists have been picked and now the voting is underway for this year’s Milwaukee County Courthouse Christmas Tree. More than twenty trees were submitted for consideration. A panel narrowed the selection down to four trees and now your vote will pick the winner.

To vote, “like” County Executive Chris Abele’s Facebook page; there, you will find pictures and descriptions of the trees. Voting runs until noon on November 18th. The tree with the most “likes” will be harvested and grace the Courthouse rotunda this holiday season.

“The generosity of people who offered their trees is overwhelming and I’m excited to see which tree people choose,” County Executive Chris Abele said. “A special thanks to Judge Pedro Colon, Supervisor Deanna Alexander and Linda Walsh who helped narrow down the selection of trees.”
