Milwaukee County Exec Chris Abele told Dem activists since Gov. Tony Evers was elected, he sometimes feels like he’s in the greatest “Twilight Zone” episode ever.
Abele said there were times in the past when he sensed there were elected officials who had a disdain for Milwaukee.
Now, he said, statewide officials don’t only return his calls, but they come to visit Milwaukee.
“It isn’t just that Tony got elected,” Abele said. “He put together an incredible team and they care.”
Abele said Democrats need to win more, however, saying victories mean results. He noted Assembly Republicans prevented the Black Caucus members from deciding who they wanted to honor in via a Black History Month resolution.
By comparison, his administration has declared racism a public health crisis.
He said Dems are looking for allies and solutions.
“We’re not about who we’re against. We’re about who we’re for,” Abele said. “When we do that, we win all day.”
