Supervisor Russell Stamper II, 5th District

Russell W. Stamper II was elected to the County Board on April 3, 2012.  He represents the 5th District, which includes the Sherman Park and Martin Drive neighborhoods on the north sides and extends through parts of downtown into the Third Ward.  Supervisor Stamper currently serves as Vice Chair of the County Board's Health & Human Needs Committee and serves as a member of the Finance, Personnel & Audit and Parks, Energy & Environment Committees.

Supervisor Stamper is one of Milwaukee’s native sons.   His family instilled in him a legacy of service and commitment to strengthening Milwaukee’s communities and empowering its residents.  He is a graduate of Messmer High School and Alabama State University.  Upon graduating from Alabama State with his Bachelors of Science, he returned to Milwaukee and completed his Master’s of Business Administration at Cardinal Stritch University.  He also holds a certificate in Professional Grant Writing from UW-Milwaukee.

Stamper is a lifelong Sherman Park resident and has served on its board for several years.  For nine years, Stamper served as the Program Supervisor for New Concept Self Development Center, where he managed and administered effective delivery of adult and youth social service programs.  His most recent position of service was with the Social Development Commission (SDC) as a Lead Integrated Services Liaison.  His primary focus was to address the immediate needs of Milwaukee residents with resources such as job training, emergency assistance, GED attainment, driver’s license acquisition and reinstatement.  This was all done with the goal of helping residents become self-sufficient.

Supervisor Stamper mentors many youth throughout the city and spends a lot of his weekends refereeing MPS basketball games.   He lives in the Sherman Park neighborhood with his lovely wife, Latoya.  They are proud parents of their first child, Russell W. Stamper III, born on March 20, 2012.
