GLENDALE – Casey Shorts declared his candidacy for the Milwaukee County Board today. A resident of Glendale, Shorts is a practicing attorney at The Previant Law Firm, S.C., where he represents injured workers and advocates for improvements to Wisconsin’s workers compensation laws.

A former aide to Senator Herb Kohl and Rep. David Obey, Shorts has dedicated his career to fighting for Wisconsin’s working women and men, with a focus on health care, veteran’s affairs, and education issues.

Shorts released the following statement following his declaration of candidacy:

“Moving Milwaukee County forward is going to take new leaders willing to work together, even if they don’t always agree.

“The challenges the county faces will never be solved unless we move beyond the personal attacks, constant in-fighting and needless war of words between the County Board and the County Executive.

“I believe that it’s time for new leadership focused on real solutions to the real issues we face.”

Shorts is a graduate of UW-Madison and Marquette University Law School, where he was a founding member of Marquette’s Student Veterans Society. Shorts and his wife, (also named) Casey are expecting their first child next spring.
