Chantia Lewis, Alderwoman for Milwaukee’s 9th District and candidate for U.S. Senate made the following statement upon notification of the District Attorney filing of criminal charges for campaign compliance issues.
“As a public servant, faith leader, and 9/11 veteran who has served my country with pride, I have served, and will continue to serve, in elected office with transparency, integrity, and honor.
After 4 years as an elected official, we were recently advised, for the first time, by the DA’s office about some potential campaign reporting errors. Upon notification of these accounting errors, we have worked with and cooperated fully with the DA’s investigation.
As a first-time candidate in 2016, and like many first-time grassroot candidates, I self-funded much of my campaign. My campaign was run by my family and a team of amazing supporters. We did our very best to run a positive and compliant campaign.
I am confident that once this is over, I will be absolved. As this matter works its way through the courts, my focus remains the same – to serve and champion the causes of every working-class person in the City of Milwaukee.”
