Ald Joe Davis moving the ball upcourt on New Arena

One exciting bonus to the 2016 Mayoral Race should be a good healthy discussion of issues affecting the City of Milwaukee.

Bob Donovan's already in, according to Mayor Tom Barrett's campaign chest he's in and Ald. Joe Davis is making waves before jumping in.

One of the issues coming up quickly, if news reports are on target, is the building of new basketball arena or bidding the Bucks adios.  Joe Davis has issued a press release supporting the building of a new arena, the importance of keeping the Bucks and discussing the idea of increasing the city's bonding authority by $100,000.

No matter where you stand on the issue of the arena, this issue will be a thorny one for area politicians as it will include not only Milwaukee maintaining it's Major League City status but also how politicians will prioritize the allocation of funds.
