Dear Neighbors,

It is my honor to serve the 1st District of Milwaukee County. With approximately 52,000 residents, the 1st District includes all of Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills and several Milwaukee neighborhoods. We are part of a diverse and vibrant county with so much to offer from the airport to the zoo, to our parks and transit system.

Since taking office in 2008, I have worked hard to balance protecting vital services for our community with responsible budgeting. I am more energized and committed than ever in the 2018 - 2020 term to find innovative solutions to the challenges we face. Together we can ensure a bright future for our county.

An important part of our success is an active and informed citizenry. I encourage constituents to reach out to my office to share their views on county issues or sign up for my e-newsletter to receive updates on county news and events.

If you are ever interested in a specific county issue, CLIC allows 24-hour access to committee and board calendars, agendas and proceedings (2011 - present). Along with archived video and audio, the system allows you to live stream most meetings. 

I am proud of the work we have done and the investments we've made to open up your government in this way and promote greater transparency.
