Candidate Information

Candidate Biography

I was born and raised on Milwaukee’s South Side and I take great pride in our hardworking community. I will always fight for our neighborhood, and want to continue to make our neighborhood a better place to work and live. Prior to your electing me Milwaukee County Supervisor, I spent more than a decade as a community volunteer in our neighborhood. For many years I operated a small business. I obtained a degree in Political Science from UWM. I wanted to educate myself in creating policies to bring beneficial impact to the people of our community. As a current Milwaukee County Supervisor, I know our community’s needs and how to address them! Milwaukee County is an arm of the State! Milwaukee County Supervisors deliver services from the state right here on the ground, which gives me a unique perspective and distinguishes me as the most qualified to go to Work on DAY ONE! I look forward to being able to speak with you soon. I will always remain accessible and willing to listen to you! No one will work harder for you!
