MILWAUKEE– Candidate for Milwaukee City Attorney Tearman Spencer released the following statement today regarding the City of Milwaukee’s settlement controversy in the arrest of Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown:

“It’s unfortunate that the City Attorney has been ineffective in his representation of the city, escalating the fight with the plaintiff rather than bringing the matter to a close. And he’s been ineffective for years in helping the MPD improve its practices so these issues don’t arise in the first place. That’s why I’m running, to change the attitude of that office. We must protect taxpayers, and the way to do that is to do the hard proactive work to make things better, and then provide effective representation.”

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Spencer attended Milwaukee Public Schools. He earned an engineering degree from the University of Southern California and became an award-winning safety engineer, focusing on transportation infrastructure including dams, bridges, tunnels, and rail and aviation systems. Spencer was then diagnosed with a degenerative condition that confined him to a wheelchair, and while striving to recover, earned a Masters in Business Administration from Golden Gate University. He learned to walk again, and then later received a Juris Doctor (law degree) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
