Len Bias Law: Homicide Charges Issued in December Overdose Death

Congratulations to the South Milwaukee Police Department for their work on this tragic case. From the department today …

A summons was issued this week for First Degree Reckless Homicide (Len Bias Law) against a 35-year-old Milwaukee man who allegedly provided drugs to a South Milwaukee woman, causing her death. The incident occurred on December 5th, 2018, in the 300 block of Marquette Avenue. Officers and paramedics were initially dispatched to that location for a suspected overdose, and when they arrived they found an unresponsive 61-year-old South Milwaukee woman. Paramedics attempted to revive her but those efforts were unsuccessful. The victim died as a result of an accidental overdose and a lengthy investigation eventually led to the identification of the alleged drug supplier.

Here is Your July 4th Schedule — See You Thursday!

From the Mayor’s Picnic to the bouncy houses, I am proud of how we’ve been able to grow this event over the years, thanks to our sponsors.

This year, we’ve added an afternoon and evening of live music, starting with a performance by our high school a cappella groups, and we’ve invested more into the fireworks show.

See you Thursday for another Independence Day of family fun!

Choosing to Invest in South Milwaukee

We will redevelop South Milwaukee, one small business at a time (and maybe a few big ones too).

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been proud to help welcome CM Salons (who previously called Oak Creek home), Eberhardy & Eberhardy (previously in Cudahy), and Black Sheep Tattoo to town, and celebrate a nice renovation at one of our longstanding local merchants, Parkway Floral.

There are more wins on the horizon, probably some losses too.

The progress is real. But we have lots of work yet to do. We’re doing it.

New Principal for South Milwaukee High School

From the South Milwaukee School District …

We are happy to announce that the School Board for the School District of South Milwaukee approved Dr. Jeffrey Fleig as the next principal of South Milwaukee High School effective July 8, 2019.

Dr. Fleig has 21 years of experience in administration. He previously served as the principal for La Crosse Central High School for 5 years, and as the assistant principal of the same high school for 6 years prior to becoming the principal. Since moving to the Milwaukee area three years ago, Dr. Fleig has been the principal of Glen Hills Middle School in the Glendale River Hill School District.

Dr. Fleig was chosen to be the next principal of South Milwaukee High School after multiple interviews with students, parents, teachers, administration, and the Board of Education. He recently received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with his dissertation focused equity for all students. His master’s degree is from UW-Superior, and his undergraduate work is from UW-La Crosse. The School District of South Milwaukee is very excited to announce his appointment.

Welcome to South Milwaukee, Dr. Fleig, and good luck at Kettle Moraine, Mrs. Kaminski!
