Sullivan would take transit off property tax rolls

    If elected county executive, Jim Sullivan said today he would enact the referendum passed by Milwaukee County voters in 2008 and create a dedicated funding source for Milwaukee County Transit System.
    Dedicated transit funding would allow the county to invest in public transportation and would save property taxpayers thousands of dollars by taking transit off the property tax rolls, Sullivan said.
    "Milwaukee County is in dire need of a renewed, vibrant transit system and property tax relief. This plan will provide both," Sullivan said. "A revitalized transit system is an investment in our community that will attract business and create jobs across our county. I call on all of my opponents to join me in standing up for real solutions to restore our disappearing transit system."
    Sullivan for Milwaukee released a petition today, "Save Our Transit," calling for the dedicated funding source that Milwaukee County voters supported in the 2008 referendum.
