claimed the life of a young woman who was not dressed appropriately for the weather.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have to try to survive outside in this cold weather, day in and day out?
Sadly, too many Milwaukeeans have to do just that.
Despite Abele's outlandish claims that he has cured homelessness, there are still scores of homeless people that have no escape from the dangerous cold except for homeless shelters. Yet Abele had refused to restore hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund these homeless shelters. Fortunately, the adults on the Milwaukee County Board overrode Abele's greed and restored the funding themselves.
Yet even that is proving to be not enough and groups are scrambling to open more shelters to deal with the growing number of homeless.
Unbelievably, denying funding to the homeless shelters wasn't enough for Abele. His war on the poor continued when he sent out county workers to take away and throw out all the belongings of people living below bridges and in other homeless camps.
There has to be a better way.
Thankfully, there is.
Chris Larson has vowed to step up the county's efforts to help the homeless by creating more shelter beds. Furthermore, Larson said he would pay for them by getting rid of Abele's Hollywood bodyguards, cutting the extravagant raises that Abele has given his cronies (just to keep them from quitting on him) and freezing the county executive's budget.
But for Larson to be able to do these things, we need to get him elected. Please help support Larson. You can find ways to help by visiting his website.
And remember to vote in the primary on February 16 and the election on April 5.
It is time to Toss the Boss.
