Eyon Biddle’s close ties to the 15th district began in childhood where he grew up in his family church, Rehoboth Miracle Temple COGIC.  He first learned about community organizing at Rehoboth, participating in youth programs, developing mentoring projects and learning at the side of his parents Herman and Twyla Carnie and his grandmother, Evangelist Barbara Biddle.

Biddle’s priorities have focused on bold tangible solutions for the literary of problems facing Milwaukee. He has been the lead sponsor of numerous legislative priorities from job creation and economic development initiatives, public transportation, public safety, and environmental protection of our public parks.  As a County Supervisor, Eyon served as a full-time, accessible, honest representative for his community.
