Hail no, Abele! We stood outside Abele’s luxury downtown condo Tuesday night to ask why he is not representing the will of Milwaukee and instead is only serving the needs of special interests. In the past several months and weeks he has…
- Accepted a role facilitating the takeover of five Milwaukee Public Schools each year, bypassing the authority of the democratically elected school board and Harvard educated superintendent.
- Accepted broad powers given in the state budget to sell land and buildings without input from the public or democratically elected county board.
- Committing hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer money towards a downtown Milwaukee Buck’s arena for $1.00.
- Refused to settle a contract with transit workers that respects workers’ rights, pays fair compensation, and ensures all future hires will be full time with benefits.
Milwaukee needs leaders, not kings!
