Mayor Barrett, County Executive Crowley react to lawsuit challenging statewide mask mandate
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and County Executive David Crowley are reacting to a lawsuit that was filed Tuesday that could end the statewide mask mandate if successful.
"Their attacks on the state action, I don’t think that it would have any impact on the action taken by the Common Council that I signed into law," said Mayor Barrett.
"It would cause us great concern in Milwaukee County. We don’t have a health department to put in any type of guidelines or a mask mandate so we don’t need the wild wild west when it comes down to a masking order," County Executive David Crowley said.
Crowley said he would work with village presidents and mayors if the statewide mandate were to be struck down.
