Last November, nearly 70% of Milwaukeeans voting supported a paid sick days ordinance. The Mayor was opposed to this initiative. After the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce sued to stop implementation and won on a narrow ground related to domestic violence, the Mayor blocked the City from supporting an appeal.
Now the Mayor cannot convince the majority of Milwaukeeans to support a mayoral takeover of MPS. A recent poll showed that 57% of Milwaukee residents are opposed to the takeover.
What is the Mayor’s response? The poll is not accurate.
Tom, it is time to start listening.
