Milwaukee County Supervisor Theodore Lipscomb, Sr. was elected County Board Chairman today to replace former Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic.

Lipscomb thanked Supervisors for their support as well as the other candidates who ran. He also thanked Dimitrijevic for her service to the Board, saying that she had done an “extraordinary job of leading the Board through tumultuous times.”

“I am humbled to be elected as Board Chairman, and I appreciate the support I received from a cross-section of supervisors who represent different areas of this community and various political persuasions,” Lipscomb said. “There is no question that the County Board has been through difficult times. But together, as a united body, we remain a strong policy-making body that can continue to improve Milwaukee County.”

Lipscomb said it is important that the Board continues to enhance the quality of life in Milwaukee County, especially by improving parks, transit and other critical safety net services provided by the County.

“The Board sets policy, and policy should be aimed at making life better for the people of Milwaukee County,” he said. “I look forward to working with all Board members to accomplish that goal.”

Lipscomb was first elected to the office of 1st District Supervisor in a very unique write-in election in 2008. He is serving his second four-year term after being re-elected in 2012. The 1st District includes all of Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills and a portion of the Northeast side of Milwaukee.

Lipscomb recently served as Co-Chair of the Finance, Personnel and Audit Committee and has also served on every standing committee of the Board at some point over the past seven years. He also serves on the board of the Milwaukee Public Library, the Milwaukee County Research Park Corporation and the Wisconsin Counties Association.

Lipscomb is a graduate of Marquette University High School in Milwaukee and an honors graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architectural Studies and a Certificate in Urban Planning. His studies include time abroad at Oxford Brookes University in Oxford, England and Paris along with independent study and research. He has continued his education with further graduate level studies in real estate finance and law, and he has completed various professional certifications.

Outside of his public service, Lipscomb has two decades of experience in both the non-profit and private sectors.
