From Pamela Fendt, President of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council, from an October 13, 2020 Facebook post (permission granted to republish):
“I owe Paul Spink a public apology. He was upset the moment Mayor Dennis McBride called a curfew. Paul wrote me “’Pam, the right to assemble and peacefully assemble is a constitutional right not subject to the whims of voters. It’s the basis of labor solidarity. It’s not optional. He decided he had the power to deny that across the board.’” Paul you were right. I was wrong. This curfew was garbage and the police actions have been shocking.”
Fendt adds: “I live in Wauwatosa and what I witnessed with my own eyes on Friday night (October 9, 2020) at City Hall was shocking. The militarization of the police response to the situation at hand was completely out of proportion.”
