Promises about Government Efficiency on Abele-O-Meter
"Establish an official framework to guide consolidation of services and functions between County, State and local governments."
Will "sell at competitive terms unused and underused land and building assets to companies and entrepreneurs who want to start or expand business ventures."
Will, as one of his first acts as county executive, "order a comprehensive audit of county land and building assets, identify those that are unneeded or underused, and then deliver a plan to transform those assets into job generators."
"As County Executive, I’ll freeze the executive office budget and cut perks like cars and cell phones."
"Abele pledged to work with stakeholders from all sides to combine employees from Milwaukee County, the State of Wisconsin, local municipalities, school districts, and other government entities to establish and focus on growing a purchasing pool large enough to negotiate lower costs in the health care marketplace."
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.
