Tony Zielinski announces candidacy for mayor of Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Alderman Tony Zielinski, who is a candidate for mayor, is introducing a resolution about sexual harassment in the City of Milwaukee.

The resolution tells the director of the Department of Employee Relations to create a policy to put city employees through sexual harassment training.

“Everyone deserves a respectful and safe workplace. This is a common sense resolution that will ensure our high standards are reflected with each employee’s behavior,” Zielinski said in a news release.

The proposal is expected to be heard by the Finance and Personnel committee in December.

Zielinski announced on November 29th that he’s running for mayor.

A spokeswoman for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett issued this statement:

“Mayor Barrett and the head of the department of employee relations have a plan in place to further address the issue of sexual harassment.”
