by Andrew Davis, VP of Governmental Affairs
With record setting attendance once again, over 400 people attended the reception that brought over 30 members of the state legislature to downtown Milwaukee. That’s 1/3 of the state’s legislative branch of government. It was a bipartisan evening as Speaker Robin Vos (Racine) and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu (Oostburg) joined Mayor Johnson and County Executive Crowley on stage during the reception, just moments after the Mayor and County Executive participated in a press conference with the Speaker introducing legislation to fix the state’s broken shared revenue system and also approve a sales tax to fix Milwaukee’s pension problem and protect public safety.
