Milwaukee Legislators Should Join Colon On Water School South Side Site

Rep. Pedro Colon has publicly urged UWM to locate the new School of Freshwater Science in Walker's Point where the Great Lakes WATER Institute already there gives UWM a water research presence.

So where are his colleagues? Where is Richards? Plale? Carpenter? Taylor? Et al?

And why are they silent on the absurd decision to locate the new engineering school on the County Grounds, right in the middle of pending Zoo Interchange reconstruction.

Without transit or even the simplest amenity for students?

Students and faculty need a strong voice on their behalf, and a big turnout at the public meetings on campus Tuesday and Wednesday when the campus Master Plan is up for review.

Meetings' schedule and details, here.
