Statement of Alderman Tony Zielinski
December 6, 2018
The lame-duck session measures approved by the Republican-controlled state Legislature are ill-advised and I firmly oppose them.
In my view it’s never a good idea to try to govern and consolidate power by ignoring the will of voters and then capping it off by making it more difficult for citizens to exercise their right to vote. That’s adding insult to injury!
The lame-duck provisions could hurt Milwaukee and I sincerely hope Governor Walker does the right thing and vetoes them before leaving office next month.
