GLENDALE – Today Glendale Mayor Bryan Kennedy announced that he is running for Milwaukee County Executive. The incumbent, Chris Abele, recently stated that he was not running for another term. Kennedy is currently in his second three-year term as Mayor of Glendale.
In his announcement speech, Kennedy stated: “As the only mayor in this race, I am the only candidate with a proven record of creating jobs by encouraging business investment, cutting property taxes, investing in critical infrastructure, and fairly and equitably solving the real problems that face local governments. My executive experience and record of bringing people together to create effective solutions makes me the strongest candidate for Milwaukee County Executive.”
“I will bring this type of pragmatic problem-solving to the County Executive’s Office,” Kennedy declared. “By partnering with mayors and other local elected leaders, we can bring good paying, family-supporting jobs, improve our transit system, and enhance our parks,” he continued.
Kennedy was joined by Whitefish Bay Village President Julie Siegel, who is also the campaign’s treasurer.
