This week, our governor signed Assembly Bill 85, which makes a number of changes to Milwaukee County government and calls for a binding referendum to determine salaries for members of the Milwaukee County Board.
These long-awaited reforms will make Milwaukee County government more accountable and will save money for its hard-working taxpayers. The people of Milwaukee County will finally have their voices heard through a vote in 2014.
I encourage you to stay alert for this vote. You will have one chance to make this change. If you forget, it’s all on you. — Jerry B
