Mayor Barrett Statement on Death of George Watts
Milwaukee-- "My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of George Watts. I always admired George for his dedication to downtown Milwaukee and his passion for customer service. At a time when businesses were leaving downtown, George and his family stayed and invested. He greeted everyone with a warm smile and a friendly handshake. George brought generations of shoppers into the heart of downtown and for that, we are grateful. We will miss George's passionate civic activism, his generous spirit and his commitment to Milwaukee."
