LETTER FROM WES and MARC
Dear Citizens of Greater Milwaukee and Milwaukee Bucks Fans Worldwide:
As I'm sure you have heard, this week we completed our purchase of the Bucks from Senator Herbert Kohl. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the gracious welcome and support that has been extended to us since we began this process. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this incredible team, as well as a member of the National Basketball Association.
Owning an NBA team with a storied history and loyal, passionate fan base has been a lifelong dream for both of us. We are proud and honored to make that dream a reality right here in Milwaukee; however, we know that with this great honor comes a responsibility to Bucks fans and this community.
This marks the beginning of a long-lasting partnership with the City of Milwaukee, surrounding communities and the State of Wisconsin. Both ourselves and Senator Kohl have pledged substantial personal resources and will work alongside the community to develop a new state-of-the-art venue in Milwaukee that will benefit not just the Bucks, but the region as well. We will become deeply involved in the community, and it is our hope that you and others will soon come to regard us as two of your own. And, of course, we are eager to have you come cheer alongside us at Bucks games once the season begins.
Our desire to succeed is enormous. We are prepared to do all that we can to field a consistently competitive Bucks team for years to come, beginning with selecting a top pick in next month’s NBA Draft. This is the start of a new era in Bucks history. We look forward to working with all of you to deliver an NBA Championship to Milwaukee.
