Statement from Mayor Cavalier Johnson on the Pending Sales Tax and Shared Revenue Legislation

“I appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this legislation. As we approach the finish line, our top objective is within sight. We have a proposed remedy to the fiscal challenges Milwaukee faces.

“There are aspects to this legislation that I strongly object to. However, through the give-and-take, no party to these negotiations is completely satisfied with final product.

“The Governor has played an essential role in bringing the legislation to this point, and legislative leaders deserve significant credit.

“To be clear, there are steps ahead before the city’s top concerns are fully resolved. I will work with the members of the Milwaukee Common Council to address their questions and encourage their approval.

“Ultimately, I look forward to signing the appropriate city ordinance to move this forward so that Milwaukee can improve public safety services, fire department response times, and innovative library services for all our residents.”
