About Supervisor Dyango Zerpa
Dyango Zerpa was born in Schweinfurt, Germany while his parents were stationed there for the U.S. armed services. He was raised by an immigrant single mother from Maracay, Venezuela who worked two minimum wage jobs while obtaining her master’s degree in public health from Indiana University while simultaneously raising her son. Supervisor Zerpa’s proud Venezuelan and Spanish heritage makes him one of the first Hispanic men elected to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.
Supervisor Zerpa attended several MPS schools and graduated high school from Wisconsin Conservatory of Lifelong Learning. Supervisor Zerpa also attended MATC’s downtown campus.
Dyango Zerpa brings vast political and policy experience to his work as a County Supervisor. He worked as a campaign consultant for more than a decade on electoral and issue-based campaigns, primarily focusing on Milwaukee’s south side and the Latino community. Before being elected to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors, he was a special education professional at Riverside High School, a Legislative Aide at the Milwaukee Common Council, Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors and the Wisconsin State Legislature.
