Contact your Milwaukee alderperson TODAY to vote for ordinance next week!
Jul 3, 2020 —
Happy Fourth of July weekend, everyone! Thank you for your patriotism in believing in the American ideal of creating community and caring for your fellow citizens by supporting a mask requirement for Milwaukee!
The Milwaukee Common Council is scheduled to vote this Tuesday (July 7) on a proposed ordinance to require masks in public places!
If you are a Milwaukee resident, you can make a huge difference by emailing your support today to 1) your specific alder and 2) to the mayor.
Email address and name of your alderperson

Email for the mayor
Here is Mayor Tom Barrett's email.
What to say?
- Keep it short and sweet.
- In the subject line, write something like "I support a City of Milwaukee mask mandate."
- In the text, restate that you support a City of Milwaukee mask mandate.
- Give them your name and address, and let them know you are a constituent.
- Ask your alder to vote for the ordinance. Ask the mayor to sign it into law.
- If you'd like, add a reason or two for your support.
It's that simple. Our alderpersons and mayor are much more likely to pass the ordinance if they hear from actual constituents like you -- and now is the time!
