Get On the Bus! Trip to Madison to Oppose Milwaukee County Takeover Bill

By Citizen Action of Wisconsin


As you probably know, politicians have introduced AB85, a bill to take over Milwaukee County, removing power from the people to hand it to corporate interests. This is the infamous Sanfelippo/Darling/Taylor bill that would cripple the County Board and centralize authority in the hands of the County Executive — and cover it up with a sham referendum. It’s an attack on local control — and we in Milwaukee won’t stand for it.

With the Assembly holding a hearing on AB85, it is critical that we show up to make our voices heard in opposition to this bill. Milwaukee must be represented, and our opposition must be registered. A diverse group of Milwaukee residents, activists and leaders have been fighting back against this proposed takeover — and we are bringing a group of people to Madison to declare our opposition to AB85.

We have a coach bus booked to travel to Madison, with room for about 50 people. It is crucial that everyone who will be riding the bus RSVP ahead of time at this link:
