This includes boards, committees, and authorities. MPA LLC is pointing out the shameless, discriminatory, disenfranchisement, taxation without representation and Involuntary Servitude of the primary electorate at the top of the city of Milwaukee Organization Chart.
The primary electorate are African American, other People of Color and the Work Challenged (homeless, disabled, re-entry veterans, re-entry incarcerated citizens, retirees, degreed but low-income jobs, and those laid-off).
Public Transportation Infrastructure
MPA LLC has joined the assessment of the INFRASTRUCTURE of the Public Transit/Transportation options available for Milwaukeeans but being BLOCKED from citizenry comments, decision-making, commitment, employment and economic engagement.
Federal and State Public Transportation grants/funding have become easy targets for projects with carbon prints, real estate aspects, lifestyle impact, multimodal impact, environmental impact, and the promise of "employment".
The problem is that those who bring the Lion's share of the funding - people mired in Enduring Concentrated Poverty - especially African American, People of Color and the Work Challenged (homeless, disabled, re-entry veterans, re-entry incarcerated citizens, retirees, degreed but un- and under-employed, plus those laid off) are left out.
The troubling images include fraud, conflict of interest and misuse of power for starters.
The People are at such a disadvantage since the elected officials are in lock-step with being un- and under-informed, they are paying back election support or they are trying to get support from the power brokers for name recognition.
Bublr has/had 2 instant accesses to the city budget, city department resources, city engineer on Bublr Bike board of directors, endorsement by the mayor and common council.
Bublr was/is positioned to pile on SPONSORS to give the appearance of best practice, transparency, and real-time accountability. However, the SPONSORS failed to speak to the blatant REDLINING and DISCRIMINATION.
She is also one who refused to respond to MPA LLC outreach and inquiries through FOIA-Freedom of Information Act regarding a questionable neighborhood project in Walnut Way-Lindsay Heights involving Sharon and Larry Adams, Adam's employee Maanaan Sabir (now owner of the Juice Kitchen), Alderman Russell Stamper, District 15, Bid 21 (Sharon Adams Board Member), federal funding and Susan Lloyd, Zilber Family Foundation.
Kaufmann connection has continued with Walnut Way-Lindsay Heights employee, Jeremy Davis - Foreman, Blue Skies Landscaping turned developer - with developing a special interest gentrification project - the Wally Schmidt Story (never mind the rich African American ownership and management of M & M Lounge).
Mr. Cole's tavern, restaurant and residential investment sits "on-hold" for 3 years minimum per city license committee of Milwaukee.
Stamper used "too many taverns" in the area as a reason for denial of MC COLE tavern license; however, Kauffman and Davis, Caucasians, are celebrating a "TAVERN". MC Cole purchased his poverty and started his rehabilitation on his own and before they did.
Maanaan Sabir misrepresenting the truth at the public hearing against MC COLE. Sharon and Larry Adams operated with Stamper to misuse power. Sabir seems to of gotten the Juice Kitchen since then in the The Common and the Adams have received false notoriety minus ethics.
Kaufmann and Davis have embarked on a marketing campaign that included crowdfunding with with Indiegogo fundraising, city of Milwaukee, and modeling after St. Ann Intergenerational Center where Sister Edna Lonegan of the Sisters of Assisi engaged in massive gentrification, misuse of power, discrimination and disrespect of African Americans to get the federally funded - Medicaid and Medicare site built.
Ms. Kaufmann has been able to pop-up in work environments such as the North Avenue having little to no experience but having connections in questionable places and refusing to provide information. She also seem to have had a hand in the expansion and site location of the bikes.
He is a WHOA for the appearance of Conflict of Interest. No wonder Bublr has gone so far and done so well in 3 years. The full court is behind and in front of them.
They failed to include the CORE CONSTITUENTS of Milwaukee and already they have their sites on the suburbs and possibly franchising the brand.
I noticed last week a quick track of bikes arrived on Brown Street @ MLKing Drive next to Fein Bros.
