Abele praises selection of Israel Ramón as Register of Deeds
MILWAUKEE, WI (CBS 58) -- In a series of Saturday morning tweets, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele praised Governor Tony Evers’ selection of Israel Ramón as the new Milwaukee County Register of Deeds. Abele tweeted “There is no better public steward than Israel Ramón to bring the transparency, accountability and quality service to the Register of Deeds’ office.” Abele also commended the Governor for “continuing to fulfill his campaign promise that he will work with Milwaukee County.”
On Friday, Governor Tony Evers announced the appointment of Ramón to replace John La Fave. La Fave resigned from the office effective April 12.
In his announcement, Gov. Evers said “With his deep ties to the community and decades of service in the private sector, often serving some of the most vulnerable populations, I am confident Israel will be an exemplary public servant and is the best candidate to lead the Register’s office.”
