MPA LLC call for "cleaning house" of DISTRUST of City Hall - all three (3) branches - Executive, Legislative and Judicial. It includes:
- Public Policies that revitalize and offset of REMOVAL of employment and quality of life Hot Spots - i.e.,Walmart, Office Depot, IHOP, Builders at Midtown.
- AND, the massive "On-Hold" development of the Northridge area.
- Public policies that bring into fruition BRONZEVILLE the next two years.
- Public policies needed to REJECT Fast track BRT/Bus Rapid Transit that fails to ensure "whole" and "wholesome" public transit that ENHANCE conditions to employment Hot Spots for Milwaukeeans - those WITHOUT employment due to transportation, those without cars, dependable cars, driver license and lack of funds. BRT that fails Highway145/Fond du Lac Corridor and southside of Milwaukee FIRST is bogus.

- Inter-neighborhood activities for better understanding of cultures.
- Enhance present and expand CDBG Neighborhood Strategic Planning areas - with individual leaders - NOT one organization with multiple sites.
- Public policies needed to immediately incorporate a city-wide "broadband - wireless" hook-up in the daily lives and activities of residential and commercial stakeholders at the home and neighborhood level.

- Public policies to embrace the $15.00 employment rate per hour for installment over the next four years.
- Removal of Public policies that promote fleecing the citizenry as in parking tickets, profiling tickets, and stacking-the-deck of code violations.
- Removal of Public policies that drain leadership, stewardship, and entrepreneurship at the neighborhood and census tract level, i.e., RETURN to HUD Community Development Block Grant funding with neighborhood leadership NSPs.
- Public policies that start with removing the "disrespectful dialog", cronyism, rude and unethical behavior in conducting the People's business in standing committees and elsewhere.
- Review Channel 25 for examples of unbecoming behavior of Chairs, other alderpeople, and staff from city departments - City Attorney, Neighborhood Services, City Clerk, etc.
- Absenteeism and excessive walking, fumbling with gadgets during hearings of Standing Committees and NOT present for voting.
- Lack of participation of total membership in the "approval or disapproval" of licenses - not just the authorization of the alderperson of the district and/or bias residents - on the merits.
- Review length of time of "wait" for licenses - time is money.
- Provide Checklist to customers and an accessible and knowledgeable person for input.
- Provide ongoing training for each council person.
- Review district-to-district fines and revocations due to comments of alderpeople of the districts.
- Overview patterns and practices to dispel "misconduct" of alderperson with a license, i.e., pay-offs of any kind.
We MUST get rid of the RIGGED system in city hall.
Since you have fiduciary responsibilities as Charter officers and you vote on policies for ALL districts, you arm yourself with "ongoing updates from the city clerk's office and rules for your being as well as get out into the neighborhoods - where you can provide a NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE - do so.
May I suggest that your office staff receive ONGOING training about your district through the City Clerk's Office, visits to community meetings; AND, is accessible, courteous, knowledgeable and a POSITIVE extension of you the elected Charter Officer.
