Clearing the Air

“Before the April 3rd election, I want to clear the air in terms of the election for Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors District 8. My opponent and his supporters continuously spin the narrative that I am bought off, or otherwise not independent. This is false, I ran because I wanted to keep moving Milwaukee County forward. Our gold medal winning parks continue to be neglected, and we don’t have sufficient Sheriff’s Deputies to adequately serve our county. It is time for new leadership on the Board. I was never asked by anyone to run, other than by my friends and neighbors throughout the South Shore. I am being supported by real leaders from the South Shore, like our deputy sheriffs and South Milwaukee Mayor Erik Brooks. If I am elected I will be independent and always put the concerns of District 8 first.”
“I know that by working together we can solve the tough issues facing our county. I hope the voters of District 8 will look past my opponent’s false rhetoric and consider who will be a better champion for the district. Working as the Senior Director of Operations and Planning at Bublr Bikes, I’ve worked extensively with the county as well as the Cities of Milwaukee, West Allis, Shorewood and Wauwatosa. This experience will allow me to hit the ground running on day one, working to move the South Shore forward. I hope to have earned the opportunity to represent residents of our district following the April 3rd election”
