La supervisora ​​electa del condado de Milwaukee, Sylvia Ortiz-Vélez, asumirá su titular el 16 de abril

Ortiz-Vélez se ha convertido en la Supervisora electa más popular para la Junta de Supervisores del Condado de Milwaukee después de derrotar a la actual Supervisora ​​Peggy West, que había estado en el cargo durante 14 años causando malestar a ciertos sindicatos, múltiples funcionarios públicos electos y Voces de la Frontera Action quienes endosaron a la titular.

Milwaukee, WI - Este lunes, Sylvia Ortiz-Vélez será juramentada como la próxima Supervisora ​​del Condado de Milwaukee para el Distrito 12 en la Sala de Juntas del Condado de Milwaukee a la 1:30 p.m. en la Corte del Condado cuarto 200, entre otros 17 supervisores. Ortiz-Vélez logró expulsar a la supervisora ​​titular, Peggy West, quien también era la presidenta del Comité de Finanzas y causó un malestar importante en las elecciones.

West recibió el respaldo de Voces de la Frontera Action (VDLFA) y Christine Neumann-Ortiz, la Directora Ejecutiva de Voces de la Frontera (VDLF), la congresista Gwen Moore (D-Milw.), la Representante estatal JoCasta Zamarripa (D-Milw. ), el Concejal de Milwaukee José G. Pérez, Kim Shroeder, Presidente de la Asociación de Educación de Maestros de Milwaukee (MTEA) y Dave Weingrod de la Federación Estadounidense de Maestros (AFT) 212 de uniones incluyendo el respaldo del Juez del Condado de Milwaukee Pedro Cólon, Juez Municipal Phil Chávez, el fiscal de distrito del condado de Milwaukee John Chisholm, el senador estatal de Wisconsin Chris Larson (D-Milw.) Y la lista continúa.

Por el contrario, Ortiz-Vélez contó con el apoyo de promotores comunitarios, como activistas, Carmen Cabrera, Luz Sosa, Victor Huyke, Marilyn Figueroa, Héctor Colón, Rebecca Arrichello, Gadibel Morales, Geary Morales, Dyango Zerpa, Teresa Mercado, Gregorio Montoto, Nancy Hernández, Martín Jiménez, el abogado Carlos Pastrona, Tony Garnica, Ernesto Nava, Raúl Huerta, Ernesto Ramírez (Chato), Ricardo Díaz, Carmen Cabrera, Anita Abraham, Cy White, Scott Wales, Roy Camronero, Blanca Blanka Estrada, Frankie Sabath, Yussef Morales, Félix Questell, Johnny Osorio, Kristina Reyes y Mariana Reyes (Familia Reyes), Juan Estrada (Familia Estrada), Oscar Brenes, Dueño de El Patrón, Dionisia González. El ex concejal James Witkowiak, Rogelio Cabral, Eleazar López, Ángel Salmerón Dueñas y la lista continúa.

Neumann-Ortiz de VDLF, una organización sin fines de lucro 501c (3) y Acción Voces de la Frontera, una organización política 501c (4), que la Junta Directiva de ambas organizaciones es controlada por Blancos con ideología liberal que participaron en reclamos falsos contra Ortiz-Vélez e incluso usó el sistema de correo electrónico de su organización sin fines de lucro para enviar propaganda política contra Ortiz-Vélez, y también intentó generar donaciones utilizando la elección de Ortiz-Vélez para continuar oponiéndose a su elección a la Junta del Condado. Ortiz-Vélez también es miembra de VDLF y para que Neumann-Ortiz continúe atacándola después de que Ortiz-Vélez derrotara a West por un margen de 57% a 42% y tuvo un aumento en la participación electoral de 48.84% en el distrito en comparación con 2017 no tiene precedentes en la historia de las organizaciones VDLF y VDLFA para seguir atacando a otra latina de la misma organización.

El mandato del 3 de abril fue claro en la carrera del Distrito 12 del Supervisor del Condado de Milwaukee, los votantes enviaron un fuerte mensaje a la Junta del Condado de que querían cambio y a Neumann-Ortiz incluyendo a VDLFA que sus afirmaciones falsas sobre Ortiz-Vélez no fueron tomadas en serio y fue un vergüenza por las acciones de Neumann-Ortiz contra una de sus propias miembras en Voces de la Frontera.

Sin dudas, Neumann-Ortiz, Voces de la Frontera y Voces de la Frontera Action cual la acción bajo el control de una Junta Directiva Blanca liberal ha perdido credibilidad en la comunidad latina y la vergüenza de usar las elecciones de la victoria de Ortiz-Vélez para generar donaciones a continúan oponiéndose a la voluntad de los electores de la comunidad del Southside que votaron por Ortiz-Vélez.

Hoy, ni Neumann-Ortiz, la Junta de VDLFA y los representantes sindicales involucrados no han tenido la decencia de pedir disculpas públicamente a Ortiz-Vélez por hacer afirmaciones falsas (que Ortiz-Vélez era candidata para el Ejecutivo del Condado de Milwaukee Chris Abele y Leadership MKE, que no cierto, Ortiz-Vélez fue una candidata independiente y no recibió un endoso o ninguna donación de Abele ni aceptó o consintió en ninguna publicidad favorable de Leadership MKE, lo que Neumann-Ortiz quería engañar a la comunidad para pensar que lo hizo sin ninguna prueba) contra Ortiz-Vélez y no se espera una disculpa por Neumann-Ortiz porque fracasaron en su búsqueda para evitar que Ortiz-Vélez fuera elegida.

El trabajo duro y la campaña de Ortiz-Vélez en puerta a puerta fue un éxito y definitivamente ella hizo una campaña positiva.

¡Es hora de limpiar la casa tanto en Voces de la Frontera como en Voces de la Frontera Action!

Milwaukee County Supervisor Elect Sylvia Ortiz-Velez Will Take Office On April 16th 

Ortiz-Velez has become the most popular Supervisor elect to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors after defeating incumbent Supervisor Peggy West who had been in office for 14 years causing an upset for certain unions, multiple public elected officials and Voces de la Frontera Action that supported and endorsed the incumbent.

Milwaukee, WI - On Monday, Sylvia Ortiz-Velez will be sworn-in as the next Milwaukee County Supervisor for District 12 at the Milwaukee County Board Room at 1:30 p.m. at the Courthouse Room 200 among other 17 supervisors. Ortiz-Velez managed to oust Incumbent Supervisor Peggy West who was also the Finance Committee Chairperson causing a major upset in the election.
West had the endorsements of Voces de la Frontera Action (VDLFA) and Christine Neumann-Ortiz, the Executive Director for Voces de la Frontera (VDLF), Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-Milw.), State Representative JoCasta Zamarripa (D-Milw.), Milwaukee Alderman José G. Pérez, Kim Shroeder, President of the Milwaukee Teachers' Education Association (MTEA) and Dave Weingrod from the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) 212 unions including the endorsements of Milwaukee County Judge Pedro Cólon, Municipal Judge Phil Chavez, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, Wisconsin State Senator Chris Larson (D-Milw.) and the list goes on.
In contrary, Ortiz-Velez had the support of community movers and shakers including activists, Carmen Cabrera, Luz Sosa, Victor Huyke, Marilyn Figueroa, Hector Colón, Rebecca Arrichello, Gadibel Morales, Geary Morales, Dyango Zerpa, Teresa Mercado, Gregorio Montoto, Nancy Hernández, Martin Jimenez, Attorney Carlos Pastrona, Tony Garnica, Ernesto Nava, Raul Huerta, Ernesto Ramirez (Chato), Ricardo Diaz, Carmen Cabrera, Anita Abraham, Cy White, Scott Wales, Roy Camronero, Blanca Blanka Estrada, Frankie Sabath, Yussef Morales, Felix Questell, Johnny Osorio, Kristina Reyes and Mariana Reyes (Reyes Family), Juan Estrada (Estrada Family), Oscar Brenes, Owner of El Patron, Dionisia Gonzalez. Former Alderman James Witkowiak, Rogelio Cabral, Eleazar Lopez, Angel Salmeron Dueñas and the list goes on.
Neumann-Ortiz from VDLF, a 501c (3) non-profit org and Voces de la Frontera Action, a 501c (4) political org, which the Board of Directors of both organizations is controlled by White liberals who engaged in false claims against Ortiz-Velez and even used their non-profit organization's e-mail system to send out political propaganda against Ortiz-Velez, and also attempted to generate donations using the Ortiz-Velez election to continue to oppose her election to the County Board. Ortiz-Velez is also a member of VDLF and to have Neumann-Ortiz to continue to target her after Ortiz-Velez defeated West by a 57% to 42% margin and had an increased of the voter turnout by 48.84% in the district compared to 2017 is unprecedented in the VDLF and VDLFA organizations history to continue to attack another Latina from the same organization.
The April 3rd voter mandate was clear in the Milwaukee County Supervisor 12th District race, voters sent a strong message to the County Board that they wanted change and to Neumann-Ortiz including VDLFA that their false claims about Ortiz-Velez were not taken seriously and should be ashame for their actions against one of their own members at Voces de la Frontera. 
No doubt, Neumann-Ortiz, Voces de la Frontera and Voces de la Frontera Action under the control of a White liberal Board of Directors have lost credibility in the Latino community and shame on them for using the Ortiz-Velez victory election to generate donations to continue to oppose the will of the Southside community electors who cast their votes for Ortiz-Velez.
Today, neither Neumann-Ortiz, the VDLFA Board and union representatives involved have not had the decency to publicly apologize to Ortiz-Velez for making false claims (that Ortiz-Velez was a candidate for Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Leadership MKE, which was not true, Ortiz-Velez was an independent candidate and did not receive an endorsement or any donations from Abele nor accepted or consented for any favorable advertising from Leadership MKE, which Neumann-Ortiz wanted to mislead the community to think that she did without any proof) against Ortiz-Velez and none is expected simply because they failed in their quest to prevent Ortiz-Velez from getting elected.
Ortiz-Velez's hard work and campaigning door to door paid off and she definitely ran a positive campaign.

Time to clean house at both Voces de la Frontera and Voces de la Frontera Action!
