Milwaukee alderman urges mayor (for 3rd time) to scrap streetcar
Alderman Bob Donovan for the third time is urging Mayor Tom Barrett to hold a public referendum on the Milwaukee streetcar project, according to a City of Milwaukee news release. Donovan will hold a rally and news conference at 11 a.m. Saturday at McKiernan’s Pub, South 37th and West Becher streets, Milwaukee.
Donovan sent a letter to Barrett on Thursday also asking him to consider using the streetcar money for local road work.
Barrett has not responded to any of Donovan’s letters, according to the release.
