Local First Milwaukee Hometown Friends:

The City of Milwaukee

Hoping to educate the public about the benefits of supporting local merchants and manufacturers, the Milwaukee Common Council unanimously passed a resolution supporting Local First Milwaukee on June 11. We’re thrilled! The city’s recognition of our work will create awareness of the importance for all – individuals, businesses, and government – to think local first. Together, we’ll have real impact!
