About Supervisor Clancy

Supervisor Ryan Clancy, re-elected for a second term in 2022, was elected in 2020 after knocking on more than 10,000 doors (and, during the pandemic, then making hundreds of phone connections) with residents from across the 4th District. Ryan is the first socialist to have been elected to public office in Milwaukee since 1956.

Ryan has a bachelor's degree in English and secondary education from Beloit College, and a master's degree in negotiation, conflict resolution and peacebuilding from California State University, Dominguez Hills, with coursework on the ground in Israel and Palestine.

A lifelong activist, his advocacy has taken him to the Philippines, where he served as a Peace Corps volunteer, to Indonesia, where he trained to do unarmed protective accompaniment for human rights volunteers, and to Iraq, where he worked with students and protested the occupation in 2003. Closer to home, in Virginia he worked with youth from areas of conflict around the world, protested at Standing Rock, and has been arrested or risked arrest protesting for immigrant rights in Milwaukee and Racine.

A frequent volunteer with disaster relief organizations, Ryan has volunteered in shelters in areas of natural disasters, as well as warming rooms in Milwaukee County. He also regularly volunteers as a legal observer with the ACLU.

Ryan taught for Milwaukee Public Schools for years, first as a substitute teacher, where he became familiar with schools and families across the city, and then in a project-based MPS school, and has continued to advocate for public schools, and all students.

Since 2014, Ryan and his wife Becky have run a bar/restaurant/community center/entertainment complex in the Polonia neighborhood. Based on that experience, he founded the Progressive Restaurant and Activists of Wisconsin Network, which advocates for higher wages, paid time-off and better working conditions for employees in the service industry.

Ryan and Becky live in the Bay View neighborhood with their five children: Desmond, James, Alex, Sebastian and Fiona, their friend Carlos, and a hedgehog.
