Alderwoman and School Board Member to Run for State Assembly
(Milwaukee, WI) Alderwoman Tomika Vukovic (1st dist, Glendale) announced her candidacy for State Assembly in District 11 today via Facebook and email blast to friends and supporters. Alderwoman Vukovic is a member of the Democratic Party.
Citing a desire to take her experience in local government to Madison, Alderwoman Vukovic said, “So many decisions made in Madison fail to address local needs. Having served on the school board and common council, I have seen our community’s needs firsthand and I know how to address them.”
Tomika added, “I do the work that I do to make a better life for our children. It is important for children in our community and in our public schools to see someone fighting for their futures and with their best interests at heart.”
Tomika is a lifetime resident of the Milwaukee area, having been raised at 21st and Atkinson, and then living near 45th and Capitol, and eventually in Glendale. Tomika participated in the state’s 220 program and attended school in the Shorewood School District. She then attended the University of Wisconsin—Platteville. She is married to Michael and has a daughter Jada in 11th grade at Nicolet High School.
Tomika’s political and community service ties are deep in the community. She worked for and has assisted many local Milwaukee campaigns. She sat on the board of the women’s workplace advocacy group 9 to 5, was the treasurer of the Progressive Community Health Center board, and currently sits on the board of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities.
The Democratic Party primary will be held on August 18, 2020, and the General election is November 3, 2020.
