Milwaukee, WI – The Executive Board of the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association and the Retired Deputy Sheriffs’ Association announced their endorsement of James Davies, candidate for Milwaukee County Supervisory, District 8.

“We do not take the endorsement of a candidate lightly. Your clear understanding towards the need for a strong Public Safety certainly illustrates you are the right choice for the 8th District,” wrote Roy Felber, President of the Retired Deputy Sheriffs’ Association and Business Agent for the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association.

The Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association was established in 1927 and is the sole bargaining agent for the Milwaukee County Deputy Sheriff’s and Sergeants regarding wages, benefits, and working conditions.

James Davies has made Public Safety a cornerstone of his campaign and upon receiving the endorsement stated, “I am very humbled and honored to be endorsed by both the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association and the Retired Deputy Sheriffs’ Association. We can work together to make the South Shore and Milwaukee County safer for all of us.”

James was born and raised in Southeastern Wisconsin, graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison and received his law degree from the University of Florida. Since moving to South Milwaukee, he’s fallen in love with the South Shore communities and is co-founder and treasurer of Growing South Milwaukee, a nonprofit working to bring a community garden to South Milwaukee. James is happily married to his wife Stephanie. Stephanie was born in Cudahy and is currently a high school teacher. Together, they have a 2 ½ year-old daughter. James is the Senior Director of Operations and Planning for Bublr Bikes, Milwaukee’s nonprofit bikeshare system.

James has been actively engaged in his community his entire life. While attending Madison, he volunteered at a local hospice. He also volunteered for the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters, working to get the Great Lakes Compact passed. During his time attending law school in Florida, he volunteered with Florida Organic Growers, building raised bed gardens for income qualified neighbors. Today he volunteers for the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic to increase access to the civil legal system.
