"This group brings talent, passion, and experience to the County."
“Having met or spoken with several new Board members already, I can tell there’s a tremendous sense of energy to come together, forge new and better partnerships with one another and in the community, and get things done for the people of Milwaukee County. This group brings talent, passion, and experience to the County.
