MILWAUKEE, WI –Rep. David Crowley (D-Milwaukee) issued the following statement in response to the recently released memo on the lead crisis in the City of Milwaukee:

“It breaks my heart to see this magnitude of mismanagement inside the Milwaukee Health Department. It is a shame to see how slowly the public is learning about what has transpired in the last few years.

“There is no reason for any department at any level of government to have a written policy that restricts communication to elected officials, especially when there is a matter of public health or safety at stake.

“City of Milwaukee residents deserves a full, transparent explanation about what is happening within MHD and into the resources that have been allocated to combat Milwaukee’s lead problems.”
