Happy Women’s Equality Day . Just like the fight for equality continued after adoption of the 19th amendment, the fight for equity and the right to vote continues still as certain individuals continue to fan the flames of division and invalidate the votes of women and people of color.

The growing gender pay gap and the disparate economic impacts of the pandemic are proof that our work is not done to achieve gender and racial equity. At this critical moment in our history, Milwaukee County is committed to advancing racial equity and supporting gender equality as we work to rebuild from the last year of health and economic devastation.

Viewpoints: Economic impact of Bucks' championship run shows potential benefit of local option sales tax

Thank you to the Greater Milwaukee Committee for your support of a local option sales tax.

"Our local governments in Milwaukee need the opportunity to ask the voters if they’re willing to incur a 1% sales tax increase to leverage our local dollars for local priorities, including property tax relief. Diversifying our local revenue mix, through a dynamic annual revenue source at no budgetary cost to the state, provides a practical and politically acceptable solution that benefits our community.

"Instead of imposing higher fees and property taxes, a local option sales tax would result in the lowest cost to taxpayers – and they’d have a voice in whether the tax is implemented."

As state struggles to close Lincoln Hills, Milwaukee County sending fewer young people to youth prison

Milwaukee County had begun rethinking its approach to juvenile justice even before the reports of abuse surfaced at Lincoln Hills, though the problems at the youth prison may have accelerated those efforts.

The county has been able to decrease the number of young people sent to Lincoln Hills by expanding community-based services; leaning on its Milwaukee County Accountability Program, which provides an alternative placement to Lincoln Hills; developing its 24-bed residential care center known as the Bakari Center; and launching programs such as the "credible messenger" program that county officials said was a first foray into preventative services.

County officials say they're bolstering programming to address the needs of young people in Milwaukee, allowing them to remain close to home.

Op Ed: Milwaukee Missed Golden Opportunity with Bucks Championship

There is no question that Milwaukee County desperately needs the ability to diversify our revenue streams. With out a local option sales tax, by the year 2027, we will have no local dollars for local services such as parks, transit, senior services, mental health, public safety and more.

Unfortunately, we need state action to allow us to us help ourselves. With the national spotlight on Milwaukee, there is no better time to capitalize on visitor spending and ensure the long-term sustainability of the region.

A 1% sales tax would have generated new revenue for parks and public transit.

David Crowley: Double down on investment in Milwaukee with local option sales tax

This is a pivotal point in time, with the national spotlight on Milwaukee, we can take advantage of the historic tourism spending, visitor spending from Summerfest and our festivals, Brewers games and future Bucks playoff games.

That’s why I’m continuing to advocate for a local option sales tax. It is an opportunity to provide Milwaukee the ability to continue as a globally competitive metro region and the state’s economic engine.

The entire world had its eyes on Milwaukee County last month when thousands of fans gathered Downtown to watch and celebrate their Milwaukee Bucks clinch an NBA championship.

On Saturday, I was proud to join some of our amazing youth and The Neighborhood Children’s Sports League in a march against violence. With the recent spike in the last year, it is more important than ever to reach out to our young people, engage them, and empower them to make positive impacts in the community.

Yesterday we celebrated the 31st Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act at our Health & Inclusion Resource Fair. For Milwaukee County residents, the ADA is critical for ensuring racial & health equity and supports our vision to become the healthiest county in Wisconsin.

For these reasons, it was imperative that I proclaimed July Disability Pride Month in Milwaukee County! We must build on the celebration of the ADA to celebrate the visibility, contributions, and accomplishments of the disability community.

MKE County: Plan Offers Vaccine Incentive for Jail, HOC

In our mission to make Milwaukee County the healthiest county in the state, we are focusing on getting as many people vaccinated as possible. Earlier this month, we announced vaccin8, a program that gives paid time off to Milwaukee County employees who have received their full COVID-10 vaccination series.

Now we are expanding that focus and are working to create a program that incentivizes incarcerated persons to get the vaccine. As the Delta variant continues to spike up COVID-19 cases, we must do everything we can to protect our community.

Committee okays $50 payment for any inmate or staff member who gets vaccinated.
