    How he been in office for 17 years :patrice:


    Tom Barrett (Wisconsin politician) - Wikipedia


    Thomas Mark Barrett (born December 8, 1953) is an American politician and member of the Democratic Party who has served as the 44th Mayor of Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 2004.[1] He served in the United States House of Representatives from 1993 to 2003, and the Wisconsin State Senate from 1989 to 1993. He previously served in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1984 until 1989.​


    And isn't Milwaukee majority Black? How he keep winning??:jbhmm:


    Honestly, I'm just shocked that there don't appear to be term limits there. Where else in America can you be the Mayor forever?

    Mayor's have damn near unilateral power if the city's council is ass. I remember Bloomberg made a 3rd term so he could run again and he won then eliminated the 3rd term :russ:. But every state is different.

    what made you decide to post about him when he's no longer going to be mayor? he's waiting for his ambassador appointment to be approved and he's outta there.

    :mjtf: it's hyperbole, breh. I'm just surprised at how long he's been mayor is all.

    We have term limits where I live. Figured most cities, especially large cities like Milwaukee did.

    But a las...I was wrong

    my surprise is how, in a major city, does some one last that long?

    That shyt is fishy to me. There should be many, many, many candidates. how they win for 20+ years straight? :patrice:
