The thing that bothers me the most about this situation is the way our 8th district Alderman Bob Donovan speaks down about things he is obviously uneducated about. In my option he owes True Skool & the mural artists a public apology.
If you are interested in emailing our future Milwaukee mayor candidate Bob Donovan you can: firstname.lastname@example.org
When I emailed him I sent some examples of cities that have mural programs that have made positive influences on neighborhoods.
"As far as I'm concerned, these jokers ought to be hung by their Buster Browns by the nearest light pole for the damage that they are causing to this community"
- Bob Donovan, 8th district Alderman
"Why is this school not teaching these kids skills that can actually help them in life? If they are artistic, teach them graphic design and advertising."
- Patty Doherty, Legislative Aide Alderman Donovan [reprinted in the comment of the A.V. article]
