Milwaukee County Board membership cut in half by voters Tuesday

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Voters in 12 Milwaukee suburbs say they want to put their county board on a diet.

They voted overwhelmingly Tuesday in favor of an advisory referendum to reduce the Milwaukee County Board from 18 members to 9 – and to give supervisors a lower part-time salary, instead of their current full-time pay of almost $51,000 a year.

The Board was cut by one member in last year’s scheduled redistricting.

The referendum’s supporters said they hoped the overwhelming votes would encourage the Milwaukee County Board to downsize voluntarily in a special redistricting – or to have the state Legislature do it for them.
