Milwaukee County Executive candidate Chris Abele has written Gov. Scott Walker to urge Walker to make major changes in his budget repair bill, re-open negotiations and drop plans to eliminate collective bargaining rights for public employees.
Here is the text of the letter:
You have an opportunity to bring people together to make the tough choices needed to get Wisconsin's fiscal house in order. The best resolution is one that includes the participation of all parties, and doesn't leave one side embittered or excluded. I encourage you to change this bill and maintain the rights of workers to organize and bargain collectively.
Candidate for Milwaukee County Executive
