The election for mayor of the City of Milwaukee is right around the corner, and the Wisconsin Policy Forum, Greater Milwaukee Committee, and Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce will host a debate that will challenge the candidates to address the critical issues facing the city. Join us on March 14 to hear the candidates discuss the following issues that have been raised by Forum research:

  • The city’s structural deficit, revenue structure, and overall financial condition
  • The city’s skyrocketing employer pension contribution and possible options to reduce it
  • Strategies to address crime, including appropriate levels of police staffing and investment in violence prevention
  • The challenges facing the Milwaukee Health Department and how it should function post-pandemic
  • The need for more affordable housing and the role of city government in promoting it
  • City economic development policies, including the future of Century City and the Hop

Cavalier Johnson
Acting Mayor

Bob Donovan
Former Alderman
