Creation of a body of neighborhood stakeholders of the city of Milwaukee to monitor and provide oversight monthly for accountability.
The June 4, 2015 deal called, "It is Cheaper to Keep Them"’signed by Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin, is not the BEST PRACTICE development for the Peopl of the city of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County.
They failed to consult with the people.
Walker and his GOP representatives (DEMOCRATS were not included) failed to ethically address the sensitive and costly issues of the NBA Bucks Arena and the seige of land and massive benefits by Herb Kohl, Marc Lasry, Wes Eden, developers and investors brings shame to the elected-appointed-hired and donor for hire representatives of government.
NO DEAL as is.
