Zach Whitney Announces Candidacy for Milwaukee Circuit Court
Litigator, former ADA, and Milwaukee resident running for Branch 5
Whitney stated, “I’m proud to call Milwaukee County my home, where my children attend Milwaukee Public Schools and where I have devoted myself to our community in the courtroom. I served eight years as a Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney. As a prosecutor I focused on combating gun crimes and domestic violence. I was a powerful voice for our community’s most vulnerable citizens. Like many others raising a family, I was forced by Act 10 to leave public service for the private sector. In my current position I am privileged to help a variety of clients, including many small businesses, navigate the complexities of our court system. The citizens of Milwaukee County deserve someone with my experience and dedication, who is a member of our community, to stand for what’s right in our courts.
Added Judge Kuhnmuench, “I served Milwaukee County residents as a Milwaukee Circuit Court Judge in Branch 5 for over two decades. I know what it takes to make a difference in our community. Attorney Zach Whitney is raising his family in Milwaukee and has been an asset to our legal community for years. That’s why I’m enthusiastically supporting Zach for Branch 5 of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court.”
