With the public safety referendum coming up Nov. 7, we want to make sure residents of South Milwaukee have the facts they need to make an informed decision at the polls.
With that in mind, we’ve created a one-stop source on our city website for information about the referendum and what got us to this point. Find it here.
Among the information you will find on this page …
- The options assessment that took a deep dive at the issues facing us when it comes to funding our paramedics and police;
- Results of the community survey we did in May; and
- A “frequently asked questions” document that we will continually update throughout the next two months. We posted this document on Wednesday.
Please review this information and share it, and look for more information soon on additional opportunities to learn about the referendum, including public events in September and October. For example, I’ll be at the Sept. 28 South Milwaukee Downtown Market from 4 to 6 p.m. answering questions on this and other topics as part of a Meet the Mayor event. That’s just the start.
You can also email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 414-768-8051. Obviously, you can always contact me via email, my Facebook page or this blog.
We are committed to keeping the lines of communication open as the special election approaches — and giving you the information you need to make an educated choice.
