Milwaukee County to consider making medical misinformation a public health crisis

My resolution will be considered at the Dec. 8 Health Equity, Human Needs, and Strategic Planning Committee meeting.

Milwaukee Supervisor and OB-GYN Dr. Sheldon Wasserman is asking his fellow county board members to declare health misinformation a public health crisis in Milwaukee County. The county board has done this before on other issues, including declaring racism a public health crisis in Milwaukee County.

This is the latest report on the many challenges facing our Milwaukee County Parks. I'm looking forward to continuing my work with the Wisconsin Policy Forum and investigating the possible solutions outlined here.

The financial challenges facing the Milwaukee County Parks have been well-documented by county officials and auditors and several blue ribbon commissions over the past two decades. The Wisconsin Policy Forum itself has spent considerable time researching the scope of those challenges and their cause...

Great work, Lake Park Friends & Milwaukee County Parks! I'm looking forward to walking the path.

Great work, Lake Park Friends & Milwaukee County Parks! I'm looking forward to walking the path.

Today, paving was completed at the path leading down to Lincoln Memorial Drive from the Summer Stage turnaround. It's much safer and more usable! This was a Lake Park Friends project with rail work done at no charge by Sid Grinker Restoration, and in cooperation with Milwaukee County Parks.

Congratulations to our Milwaukee County Parks for securing a $453,954 grant for trail improvements from the National Park Service!

"The trail project is one of only 19 projects across the US to receive a grant in this round of funding.

The grant will help fund the construction of a new separated, off-road path for the Oak Leaf Trail’s Kinnickinnic Line, approximately one mile, from 16th St to 27th street. As well as the trail construction, the project will include tree plantings, rain gardens and renovation of outdoor recreation facilities.

Pending full approvals and reviews, the design of the new trail is expected to begin in 2022, and construction could begin as early as 2023."

The Village wanted to inform community members that the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will be conducting a parking study in the month of August. The study will consist of the Lake Drive corridor between Edgewood Ave. and Kensington Blvd.; parallel streets of Harcourt Pl., Ridgefield Cir., and Richland Ct.; and side roads of Shorewood Blvd., Jarvis St., Wood Pl. and Olive St. between Downer Ave. and State Hwy. 32 (Lake Dr.).

The study will analyze parking trends on both weekdays and weekends at various times throughout the day. The data will help WisDOT determine a road design concept for the Lake Drive reconstruction project scheduled in 2026. The Village will keep community members informed on the results of the study and any additional steps completed by WisDOT to determine the final road design. The Village thanks WisDOT for taking this step in their analysis to provide more data on the current parking demands along Lake Drive.

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 https://www.facebook.com/events/247458972605451/?ti=icl
