A walk with Mayor Tom Barrett

As part of his initiative to walk 100 miles in 100 days throughout the city of Milwaukee, Mayor Tom Barrett came by the street for a promenade through Listening to Mitchell. On a picture-perfect Friday afternoon, we were joined by a slew of community members, including project supporters and participants. There’s never a wrong way to soak in Mitchell Street, but it’s hard to beat taking in the street with 55 friends, old and new.
