Penny Sikora, a Milwaukee County bus driver and former Legislative Director for the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 998, has announced his intention to run for the 2nd District of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. Mr. Sikora has fought to ensure the survival of Milwaukee County’s public transportation system, the creation of family-sustaining jobs, and has been active in the community to promote programs that benefit strong economic development. He recently announced his intention to run for the seat on the Sherwin Hughes radio program on 860 WNOV.

“It brings me great honor to announce my candidacy for the 2nd District of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. The 2nd District is my home, and a place where I am proud to raise my family. Throughout my time living in Milwaukee, I have been an advocate for improved public transportation as a means of access to jobs, economic development, and the stability that all communities in Milwaukee are entitled to,” Sikora stated. “I look forward to visiting everyone in the district, knocking on every door, and listening to the ideas that my neighbors have in order to bring a higher level of discourse to our political system. I will never stop fighting to protect our parks, our transit, and the vital public programs that help generate a higher quality of life throughout Milwaukee County.”

Mr. Sikora is a graduate of the University of South Florida where he earned his degree in criminal justice. Prior to his enrollment at USF, he attended Oak Hills Christian College where he studied Pastoral Ministry.

Mr. Sikora is seeking to fill the seat being vacated by Supervisor Nikiya Harris, who won the race to represent the 6th District of the Wisconsin State Senate in the fall of 2012.
