City of Milwaukee Common Council - missing Alderman Russel Stamper II
The Milwaukee Common Council exercises all policy-making and legislative powers of the city, including the adoption of ordinances and resolutions, the approval of the city's annual budget, and the enactment of appropriation and tax levy ordinances. The council also has approval over the mayor's appointments of cabinet heads to direct day-to-day operations of city departments. In addition to their powers as legislators, council members serve as district administrators, responsible to the citizens in their districts for city services.
Milwaukee residents are encouraged to communicate with their elected officials in a variety of ways. The public is allowed to participate in the discussion of matters on the agenda at committee meetings of the council. Council members frequently host public Town Hall meetings in their districts and prepare and mail informative newsletters to constituents.
The president of the Common Council is elected by the council members at the beginning of the councils term and serves for four years. The president makes all appointments to the councils seven standing committees and many special committees, and presides over all meetings of the full council. He or she becomes acting mayor when the mayor is out of the city.
Alderman Michael Murphy - Chair Steering Committee
The seven standing committees of the Common Council are Community and Economic DevelopmentFinance & PersonnelJudiciary & LegislationLicensesPublic SafetyPublic Works, and Zoning, Neighborhoods & Development. In addition, there is a Steering & Rules Committee comprised of the Common Council President, who is the chair, and the standing committee chairs. This committee has jurisdiction over extraordinary matters not covered by the responsibility of any standing committee.  see reference
Legislative accountability?
Twenty-first (21st) Century LEADERSHIP for the first-class city of Milwaukee that has a Core Constituent that is 3/4 People of Color requires that it is focused-reformed-innovative-engaged and committed for changing discriminatory practices and Enduring Concentrated Poverty.  

It starts with each of the 15-member legislative body recognizing the CORE CONSTITUENTS and their needs from the body and engagement of their districts for "wholistic" improvements to create UPscalability in our economy.

For the 1st class city of Milwaukee, the Core Constituents are:

-- African American

-- People of Color, and

-- the Work Challenged.

Work Challenged represents un-, under-skilled; un-, under-employed; un-, under-financed neighborhood-level businesses; disabled; and re-entry.

Re-entry represents those returning from WAR, INCARCERATION, boomerang employment, boomerang retirement and college-certificated graduates unemployed. 

By recognizing the target audiences, the executive and legislative branches can re-define and re-brand the planning and designed services of the stakeholder-citizen within the city of Milwaukee in protocols that will help yield pragmatic steps to secure the Infrastructure of quality of life and economic issues.

The two branches of city government, legislative and executive, can remove impediments to sound labor and innovative business development at the census tract and neighborhood level; instead of disenfranchisement of the population, especially People of Color, and by default create massive profiling that leads to massive poverty and oppressive laws related incarceration.

Recommendations:  Stop the denial.  Infuse/soak all efforts with improving the "least of these".  Shun divisiveness - pitting one race, individual or group against another.  When found, deal with swift removal and ouster of person (s).  Recognize and outreach to hidden talent, emerging businesses and vetted businesses at the neighborhood level.

Self-monitoring by each of the 15 members to ensure that the "brand" of the Common Council becomes TRUST.
