Celebrating Black History Month and recognizing the continued fight for equity and respect for Black communities in Milwaukee—and beyond.

Let us honor the achievements and contributions of individuals who have shaped our history and continue to inspire us. But while we commemorate the progress made, we must also acknowledge the work still to be done.

Let us use this month to educate ourselves, support Black-led community organizations, and commit to being allies in the ongoing struggle for justice.

We often have guests at our meetings of the Committee on Parks & Culture, but I have to say that Pearl has been one of my favorite visitors so far.

As Vice Chair Steven Shea noted yesterday, if "County Board mascot" is a paid position with salary based on cuteness, Pearl will be making quite a pretty penny.

"And yes, one of those exhibit galleries will be a highly-immersive walkthrough of Milwaukee that explores our marvelous city’s history, nature and cultures. It will not be called 'Streets of Old Milwaukee' as all exhibits are getting new names."

An important clarification from Milwaukee Public Museum. Read the full post below for more info.

Over the course of a few days, the statement “entire exhibits won’t be moving over” fueled a lot of speculation about the Future Museum. While the community will get a first peek at the Future Museum exhibits in spring, here are a few details that might help to provide some clarity about our process.

Let’s first address our recent statement that “entire exhibits won’t be moving over” to the Future Museum. What does that mean? Most of our exhibits, like the Streets of Old Milwaukee, have elements that are built into the current facility. Deconstructing those in a way that won’t damage them and using those exact same materials to reconstruct them in a differently shaped building would be nearly impossible, not to mention excessively expensive and time-consuming. What we can do is construct new built-ins that create the same immersive, engaging experience you know and love at MPM.

We also want to be completely transparent in that many favorite exhibit elements from MPM will be in the new Museum, but there will also be places where we’ll want to show you something new. There are millions of objects and specimens behind the scenes that have never been on display before. We think it’s time to share some of those with you, and maybe even have some objects on rotation so you are exposed to new collections items throughout your visits.

Community input is important to MPM. We’ve been soliciting input on this project for years. We do read all the comments and emails. As you can imagine, we’ve heard everything from “don’t change a thing” to “the Museum needs a complete overhaul.” Where we want to land is somewhere in the middle, which means a mix of familiar favorites and what we hope will be some new favorites.

Unlike the current Museum, which has three floors of exhibits, the Future Museum will have four floors of many wonderful exhibit galleries that take you around the world and back in time. And yes, one of those exhibit galleries will be a highly immersive walkthrough of Milwaukee that explores our marvelous city’s history, nature, and cultures. It will not be called “Streets of Old Milwaukee,” as all exhibits are getting new names. Stay tuned for more details later this spring, as we need a few more months to make sure every fun detail is just right.

Keep in mind that when the current Museum was built in the early 1960s, exhibits were designed and added one-by-one over a period of years. We are designing an entire Museum of exhibits at once. That takes an extraordinary amount of thought, time, and coordination from our curators, collections managers, exhibit artists, and architects. What we’ll show you in spring is a generous peek at which galleries we’ll have and what some of them will look like. Until then, we ask for your patience and want to reassure you that we understand how important the nostalgia of the current museum is to you.

One more thing: Building and designing a museum is a long process, and we will share key milestones over the course of the next several years, leading to the opening in late 2026. Along the way, if you hear something about the Future Museum, please don’t assume it’s true unless you’ve seen that same information from official MPM channels. All important announcements will be made at mpm.edu/future and shared via MPM’s social media and email newsletters. It’s important that you have the facts. We love this Museum, too, and most of us have grown up here just like so many of you! We are honored to make sure it continues to be a community treasure for future generations.

Restaurant Jerez Opens in Walker’s Point

Welcome to the district!

“The restaurant is an opportunity for a little bit bigger source of income to be able to see their kids go to college and have a successful life, and hopefully in the future to keep running this business and make it a family franchise." [said Alberto Peña, the owner’s son.]

New Mexican restaurant aims to change narrative for Walker's Point building.

It's National ! We don't have to tell you that in municipalities all across the United States, men and women suit up every day, 24/7/365, to patrol, protect, and serve their communities.

We thank them all for their service and their commitment to public safety. We especially thank our own, the members of the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office.

The old adage says "somebody 'has' to do it." But no one has to do this. Every deputy you meet from this agency who is doing their job properly is here because they want to be, because they care.

2022 Chanukah Festival and Menorah Lighting at Bayshore in Glendale

BAYSHORE's annual festival and menorah lighting is one of my favorite Milwaukee County holiday traditions.

Even though Glendale is no longer within the borders of the 3rd District, I was very happy to be invited back — and to be given the great honor of flipping the light switch!

The first night of Chanukah was celebrated with a festival, Gelt Drop and Menorah lighting in the Yard at Bayshore in Glendale on Sunday.

Like many in our community, I needed healing and optimism yesterday; I found it in the celebration event for an exceptional piece of public art at Pulaski Park. This mural engaged youth from Milwaukee Christian Center's Community Art Leaders and Cosmic Butterfly Design by Tia Richardson. It depicts the symbolic progression from challenges (from left to right) through struggle into a brighter future. The process was extraordinary, originating entirely with the community, aided by the work and vision of organizations and facilitated with the agile accommodation of the Parks Department. I recommend seeing it in person to take it all in.
I was joined by County Executive David Crowley, Milwaukee County Parks Executive Director Guy Smith, County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman, Alderman José Pérez, Travis Hope, 16th Street Community Health Center and KK River Neighbors in Action.

I am proud to author Resolution 21-556 (full resolution in comments) which would increase pay for ALL lifeguard positions by $3, provide retention bonuses, cover training costs for lifeguards, and create a new seasonal park worker position to attract new hires and encourage employee retention. We need to find creative solutions to combat the significant lifeguard shortage while retaining and recruiting new lifeguards.

This is a positive step towards having a safe and enjoyable 2021 and 2022 swimming season.

I am proudly joined on this Resolution by County Supervisor, Steven Shea, County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman, Milwaukee County Board Supervisor Shawn Rolland, County Supervisor Patti Logsdon, and County Supervisor Ryan Clancy. The Personnel Committee unanimously passed this resolution, and it will be up for adoption at the July 29th Milwaukee County Board Meeting.
In the 1980s, the county had over 1,300 full time Parks employees. Parks now has only 240 full time employees and a fraction of the seasonal staff had in the past. From our June issue, here's a piece by County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman.
County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman is exactly right regarding the desperate state of funding for our Milwaukee County Parks. Without a revenue solution, in six years every dollar of Milwaukee County's current revenue will be dedicated to services mandated by the State of Wisconsin. This means no money for local priorities such as our beautiful county parks.

Our solution is simple. Allow Milwaukee County residents to vote on a local sales tax to fund our local priorities. We cannot achieve this however without action by the State Legislature. We need legislation to allow us the opportunity to help ourselves and solve local problems with local solutions.
Great news for the neighborhood. Kudos to Lake Park Friends and County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman for making this happen. https://mailchi.mp/c277916e1ab3/lake-park-friends-e-newsletter-july-4986302?e=cf9a2709d7

Hi Dr. Wasserman!

If you are free, please consider attending the Concord Chamber Orchestra’s annual holiday concert at the Basilica of St. Josaphat this Saturday. The CCO has been serving the Milwaukee area since 1975. It would be wonderful to see you there.

Cheers,
Jessica
