A final stand to save Milwaukee parks

The short story is that the Wisconsin State Assembly meets tomorrow to vote on the final state budget, and there are a few ammendments that will be put forward that would remove the sales tax support for our parks. We the people of Milwaukee County voted for that sales tax increase. And it passed! Now a few are trying to undo it. Perhaps they don’t realize what jeopardy the parks would be in without it. Perhaps they don’t care. Either way, that is not what we voted for and it is not what we’ve spent the last nine months working on getting in to the state budget!

Do the right thing. Give us the tax increase that we voted for.
