MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today announced Nadiyah Groves will serve as the director of the governor’s Milwaukee office. Edwin Huertas and Revelle Warren will continue to serve as the Milwaukee deputy director and Milwaukee constituent services director, respectively.

“We are excited to welcome Nadiyah to the team as she takes over as the director of our Milwaukee office,” said Gov. Evers. “Nadiyah is a Milwaukee native, deeply connected to the community, and ready to serve. We are fortunate to have her and she will be a great resource not only for our office but for the people of Milwaukee.”

The Milwaukee team will continue to attend community meetings, build new relationships, advise on policy as it relates to Milwaukee, and assist constituents with a variety of issues.

Hailing from 53206, Nadiyah is a proud native of Milwaukee and MPS alum. Nadiyah comes to lead the Milwaukee team with a strong background in advocacy, a passion for political engagement and organizing, and experience in building responsive and inclusive community space by convening leaders at local, state and national levels around critical issues.

Nadiyah previously served as the Milwaukee Director for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris. She also worked as Director of Grassroots Activation for the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee and on the Public Engagement team for the 2020 Democratic National Convention Committee earning the 2020 Milwaukee Business Journal 40 under 40 distinction.

Prior to that, Nadiyah worked for the non-profit LISC Milwaukee administering technical assistance for family wealth-building programs and coordinating neighborhood revitalization projects. In 2018, she worked as Deputy Milwaukee Director for Senator Baldwin’s reelection campaign.

Nadiyah attended Milwaukee School of Engineering – a decision that fuels her joy in mentoring and advocating for more Black children to learn computer programming and coding. She is a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and loves spending time with her seven-year-old daughter.
