County Supervisor Deanna Alexander has joined four other supervisors in calling for Marina Dimitrijevic to relinquish her title as Chairwoman of the County Board

Milwaukee – County Supervisor Deanna Alexander has joined four other supervisors in calling for Marina Dimitrijevic to relinquish her title as Chairwoman of the County Board. Alexander made the following statement:

“No one is perfect, but a worthy and effective leader understands the importance of recognizing and learning from mistakes. One who can not learn from missteps is dangerously leading others astray.

“After I helped vote Dimitrijevic into the role of Chairwoman last year, I told her that I had taken a leap of faith betting on her ability to lead. I warned her that if I ever witnessed her using her position as chair to manipulate furthering her own personal agenda, I would stop supporting her.

“The first time I caught her, I let it slide.

“The second time she did it, I spoke with her privately and she expressed regret.

“This third time, I would only do my constituents a disservice if I continued to hold my tongue.

“The best leaders empower others and that is not happening here. Dimitrijevic has misled the public by playing word games to cover up the board’s actions, and she is too proud to admit missteps, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

“I can no longer support Marina Dimitrijevic as our chairwoman and call on my colleagues to seriously consider whether they can vouch for her actions.”
