MILWAUKEE - The clearly divided Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors said it's poisonous to work on the board as it is, and now five supervisors are calling for chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic to step down.
The five county supervisors are saying Dimitrijevic violated Act 10.
It takes a two-thirds of a majority to remove the chair, so the supervisors need another 12 colleagues to agree to force the chair out.
Dimitrijevic said in a statement: "The people of Milwaukee County do not want political stunts; they want elected officials to represent their best interests."
Those who support Dimitrijevic believe she followed the law, and that this is just a political ploy.
The supervisors said this has nothing to do with the fight over board reform, but say they have lost confidence in the board leader.
