Friday on Lake Effect: Milwaukee County Budget, A Bridge to Vietnam, Milwaukee Rep

Friday on Lake Effect:

County Executive Chris Abele joins us to discuss details of his proposed $1.3 billion county budget. The budget calls for a freeze in taxes, increases for the sheriff’s department and behavioral health division, but no raises for county employees. Later, a show premiering tonight on Milwaukee Public TV looks at bridging the divide that still exists in Milwaukee, more than four decades after the end of the Vietnam War. A new play at the Milwaukee Rep explores bullying, apology, and forgiveness. And Milwaukee Magazine asks people what they love about the city.
