Town Hall Meeting About Our Parks
June 14, 2018
6:30 pm
Brown Deer Park, Golf Clubhouse

Preserve Our Parks (POP) is launching a campaign encouraging our elected representatives, both local and state, to determine a stable, secure and sustainable funding source(s) for our parks. Because of Milwaukee County's funding challenges, POP is leading an effort to find a solution to help preserve our park system. We wanted to let you know in case you are interested in participating or attending this meeting.

This "Town Hall" type meeting has been scheduled to provide information about how the County got to this point and the need for action. The main goal is to enlist/engage advocates to assist in affecting a positive change for our Parks. The goal is to keep the meeting to one hour. 

This is an opportunity to help preserve our wonderful parks.

Our local democracy is under attack. County Executive Chris Abele is using his vast wealth to undermine our local election process. Since January 1, 2018, he has poured $379,486.84 into campaigns to unseat four County Board Supervisors who have opposed him on County budget and policy issues including the wheel tax, pay to park, senior center and emergency shelter funding.

Abele is using a sham organization called Leadership MKE to hide how much money he personally is throwing at these campaigns. Nearly all of the money spent has gone to out of state printing, advertising, and mailing firms. Thanks to the WI Campaign Finance Information System, we know exactly where the dollars are going!

Supervisor campaigns typically cost $5,000 to $25,000. In the four campaigns targeted, Abele has spent an average of $94,871.71 so far! Chris Abele is trying to BUY a County Board that will always agree with him. It's time to say NO to big money in local elections. Tell Chris Abele to keep his millions out of our elections!
