Promises about County Government on Abele-O-Meter

Sell underused county property to pay debts

Develop a plan to spend federal transit funds

Over the next year will "work with key stakeholders to finally develop a plan to invest $36.6 million in federal transit funds designated for Milwaukee County that have for too long sat idle as a result of partisan bickering."

Consolidation of municipal services

"Establish an official framework to guide consolidation of services and functions between County, State and local governments."

Establish a 'final' Park East plan

Will establish "a final Park East Plan that will turn the vacant land into job-generating development."

Move county economic development office close to Milwaukee office

Abele said that, if elected, he would move the county’s economic development office into the same building as Milwaukee’s Department of City Development.
