Franklin, WI: Forward Latino, a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy and service organization with  members throughout the City of Milwaukee has been calling on Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to veto  the aldermanic district map passed by the Milwaukee Common Council and that diluted Hispanic  representation. Today Mayor Barrett officially issued his veto forcing the issue back to the Milwaukee  Common Council. 

Forward Latino National President Darryl Morin issued the following statement: 

“Thank you, Mayor Tom Barrett for your careful deliberation and thoughtful action. Forward  Latino looks forward in working with our partners, as well as with you, Common Council  President Chevy Johnson, Chairman Ashanti Hamilton, and the members of the Milwaukee  Common Council in fulfilling the true purpose of the redistricting process, to ensure fair representation for all.”
