New Milwaukee County Exec Pushes Domestic Partner Benefits

Chris Abele, the new Milwaukee County Executive issued a press release  Monday that he would work with the County Board toward adopting an ordinance that would extend health care and other benefits to domestic partners of Milwaukee County employees. In 2009 Scott Walker issued a veto for measure to study the issue. According to this article , Abele said he would move ahead with the type of benefits package that Walker rejected.
