First "Our Milwaukee" Hearing Session Tuesday

Remember that the first hearing session on how Milwaukee County government - all aspects of it - is scheduled for Tuesday evening. From their press release:

The Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors announce today the first round of listening sessions of the “OUR Milwaukee County” government reform discussion.

The word “OUR” of OUR Milwaukee County stands for “Outreach for Unified Reform.” The goals of the initiative are to discuss reform of Milwaukee County government locally and to create dialogue and listening sessions, inviting everyone whose daily lives are touched by Milwaukee County government.

Tuesday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m.
Wilson Park Senior Center, Main Hall, 2601 W. Howard, Ave., Milwaukee
Supervisor Jason Haas

Other listening sessions currently scheduled include:

Thursday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m.
Wauwatosa Public Library, Firefly Room, 7635 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa
Supervisor James “Luiggi” Schmitt

Tuesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m.
North Shore Library, 6800 N. Port Washington Rd., Glendale
Supervisor Theodore Lipscomb, Sr.

Tuesday March 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Evangel Assembly of God, Chapel area, 9920 W. Good Hope Rd., Milwaukee
Supervisor Deanna Alexander

Also, there is a hearing with Supervisor Patricia Jursik next month:

Thursday, April 4, 2013
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center,
901 15th Avenue, South Milwaukee, WI

Word is that the Greater Milwaukee Committee is planning on trying to pack the place with their plants, even if most of them aren't even from Milwaukee County.

So show up, and plan on not only being seen, but on being heard.

With Scott Walker in Madison and David Clarke in the Sheriff's office, we've already exceeded our quota for petty tyrants. We don't need to allow making Chris Abele the third one.

Also, please note that the County Board has already set up four hearing sessions.  Abele has set up none.  It's abundantly clear that Abele doesn't care what you think or whether your rights are protected.
