MILWAUKEE  – Today, former State Senator and Milwaukee County Child Support Services Director Jim Sullivan announces his endorsement of State Rep. David Crowley to be the next Milwaukee County Executive.

“David Crowley doesn’t come into this race thinking that he has all of the answers, he is ready to listen to people from all over Milwaukee County to find the best solutions,” said Sullivan. “His track record of working with people of all different backgrounds and ideologies make him the best choice to be able to secure a fair deal for Milwaukee County from the state legislature. I’m happy to support David Crowley to be the next County Executive.”

“The work Jim has been able to do over the last decade with Milwaukee County Child Support Services has been remarkable. We need more leaders like him at the county level to make sure that we are providing the best possible services to Milwaukee County residents,” said Rep. Crowley. “It’s an honor to have Jim’s support and I look forward to building on the successes that he and his department have had.”

As a member of the State Assembly, David sits on the Energy and Utilities, State Affairs, Workforce Development, and Transportation Committees and is the ranking member on the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.
