MILWAUKEE –Supervisor Deanna Alexander announced today that she will honor a pledge she made when she first ran for office to serve no more than three terms as a Milwaukee County Supervisor and will not seek re-election in 2020.

“When I first ran for office there was a lack of trust between the people and their representatives in Milwaukee County government. As a conservative, part of the reason I decided to run for this seat on the Board of Supervisors was to restore integrity to public office. I took a term-limit oath committing myself to serving no more than three terms as a Milwaukee County Supervisor because I believe we must show with our actions that the peoples’ business is more important than our own job security as politicians. After three terms and eight years in office, I will keep the promise I made to the people of the 18th District and not seek re-election. It has truly been an honor to serve as the Supervisor for the 18th District since 2012, and I’m proud of the work I’ve done to advocate for my constituents, for lower taxes and smaller, more efficient government, and for conservative values,” said Alexander.

Supervisor Alexander was first elected in 2012, again in 2016, and to a third term in 2018. She currently serves on the Intergovernmental Relations Committee, the Health and Human Needs Committee, and the Judiciary, Safety and General Services Committee. She is also the Chair of the Milwaukee County Emergency Medical Services Council.

In addition to serving as a Milwaukee County Supervisor, Alexander also works full-time as the Administrator for the Village of Newberg in Ozaukee and Washington Counties.

Alexander’s lifelong career in public service includes time working in the fiscal department of the Behavioral Health Division of Milwaukee County, overseeing Milwaukee County’s foster care system for the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, and serving as an enlisted soldier in the Wisconsin Army National Guard with Milwaukee’s 57th Field Artillery Brigade.
