Statement from Aisha Carr

MILWAUKEE, WI – “My opponent and her supporters recently sent out a mailer riddled with lies. They are claiming I support Scott Walker and that I want to privatize MPS. These are lies, distractions, and detractions from the current crisis our schools and our students face. I was an MPS educator and a member of the teacher’s union when Act 10 happened. I felt that pain and fear firsthand. I am saddened and disgusted that anyone would claim otherwise.

I’m a proud MPS parent, graduate, teacher, and advocate. I worked as a Special Education and English teacher in MPS. I currently serve as the Opportunity Youth Re-Engagement Director with the Silver Spring Neighborhood Center in partnership with the Burke Foundation.

My campaign is led by youth who are former students and my current colleagues. Collectively, we are focused on youth employment, educational quality, and youth leadership. I love and appreciate our public schools and will do everything in my power to uplift all the children and every family who has felt the harm of our highly politicized educational system. I know the stories of struggle all too well from my time as an educator and my current work in youth empowerment.

For me, this race is about our children and our communities. Petty politics, lies, and misrepresentations should stay on the sidelines. It is a bad example for our children and it unnecessarily divides our community preventing us from achieving systemic change. I will continue to run a campaign grounded in integrity, honesty, and my proven experience in uplifting youth in Milwaukee.”
