Special interests groups are aggressively backing a plan to reduce funding for the Milwaukee County Board by over 80% as well as make the elected positions part-time.
This is an overreach of state government into local politics. It’s a blatant attack on democracy and on citizen rights to meaningful representation. County Supervisors’ are closest to residents and provide the first resource for citizen questions, concerns and ideas. The voices of Milwaukee residents will be dramatically silenced if the Board is cut or reduced and all the power will be in the hands of the County Executive.
