Statement of Alderman Tony Zielinski

With Chief Flynn’s announcement this afternoon that he will be leaving his post with two years left on his contract, I am adamant that there be no buy-out provision executed that lines the chief’s pockets at the expense of the taxpayers of the City of Milwaukee.

I am working to get a copy of the terms of his contract to see what the specific language states about early departure, but I sure hope there’s not a golden parachute that will benefit the Chief.

Quite frankly I do not believe Chief Flynn should be rewarded for a lackluster tenure that increasingly saw him brushing off or even ignoring Council members, the Fire and Police Commission, and ultimately the citizens of Milwaukee.
