Dear LPS supporters,
This is a link to a League of Progressive Seniors change. org petition that addresses Senate Bill 777 currently being considered by the Wisconsin Legislature. The bill would drastically reduce the power of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors and tremendously increase the power of County Executive Chris Abele. What does this mean to us? It means that the County Executive will be able to do things like close senior centers and put parking meters in the parks without having to deal with the County Board OR the public. Basically, we will lose our voice. We are hoping to get at least 1,000 signatures on the petition. Just go to the link, sign it, and pass it on to your friends and colleagues. If you are on Facebook, you will see the petition on the League of Progressive Seniors FB page where you will be able to share it via your FB networks.

Time is short!
Please sign and share quickly.
Thank you!

About 300 county residents showed up to voice disapproval of the plan to collect parking fees at parks, parkways and the lakefront this year. The county pay-to-park work group held the meeting at the Mitchell Park Domes on February 6th.
