Move Forward MKE supports giving Milwaukee County the ability to diversify its revenue streams to provide property tax relief, reform local pension systems, while adequately funding public services, maintaining facilities, and investing in the future.
Move Forward MKE is a Milwaukee County-wide coalition of local governments, business leaders, and community leaders who recognize that local problems are best solved with local solutions. This is not about politics; it’s about real solutions for real challenges our County is facing and their impacts on our residents and our region.
