MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee treasurer’s office records show Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes is delinquent on property taxes.

Deputy City Treasurer Jim Klajbor said Friday that Barnes, a Democrat, has failed to pay $2,225.43 in property taxes, interest and penalties for his condominium.

Barnes told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which first reported the delinquency , that he’s paying the delinquent taxes in an installment plan.

But Klajbor said Barnes failed to make the first payment in a monthly installment option by Jan. 31 and hasn’t made any subsequent payments. A spokesman for Barnes did not immediately comment.

Barnes earlier this month said he had paid a $108 fine for parking tickets that went unpaid for more than a year.
