It is my honor and a privilege to serve as your County Supervisor. I am committed to making your voice heard in Milwaukee County government.
P.J O’Rourke said, “The mystery of government is not how government works, but how to make it stop!” Truer words have not been spoken. While the services that government can provide are important, we must not forget that freedom from government carries the same weight as those important services that government provides. I shall continue to stand tall as your representative in Milwaukee County while working together with others to pass positive and responsible policies that help Milwaukee County, while speaking out on your behalf when government turns down the wrong road.
President Ronald Reagan said, "Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives." Freedom must be fought for and protected at every level of government or one day we will be telling our children’s children what it was once like when people were free.
As a U.S. Navy veteran who served on the Chief of Naval Operations intelligence staff at the Pentagon during the Reagan administration, I will pick up that standard, and fight that fight all day every day. I look forward to taking on the important issues that face Milwaukee County. I will take bold actions toward building a better Milwaukee County that is responsible to the people!

About Supervisor Sebring
Dan Sebring was born in Milwaukee on June 27, 1957. His father was the church organist at Holy Name Polish National Catholic Church in Milwaukee, and his mother was Pulaski High Class of '51 valedictorian. Raised in New Berlin, in 1975 he graduated from New Berlin West High School.
Shortly after his 18th birthday, Dan joined the New Berlin Volunteer Fire Department, where he quickly became the youngest and most knowledgeable operator of their largest piece of firefighting equipment.
Having been employed as an assembly line worker, a janitor, turret lathe operator, school bus driver, gutter installer, truck driver, printer, painter, disc jockey, bartender, body guard, carpenter, cabinet maker and auto mechanic, Dan knows firsthand the life of not only a working man, but also the plight of the poor and unemployed. He has experienced many of the hardships the unemployed face living day to day on the brink of financial disaster. Early in the recession of the 1980's, Dan was employed as a carpenter; however, when the prime interest rate shot up to 21.5%, he found himself not only out of work but homeless and living in his car. This prompted him to enlist in the Navy.
As a member of the U.S. Navy, Dan served on the Chief of Naval Operations Intelligence Staff at the Pentagon and later at the Navy Air Reconnaissance Control Center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In each case, the positions were highly classified, specific and focused on national security.
A graduate of the Leadership Institute in Arlington, VA, Dan Sebring remains active in the community participating in fundraising and awareness-raising activities for Autism Speaks and rides his Harley-Davidson in fundraising rides for WELS Lutherans for Life, which operates local crisis pregnancy centers.
Dan is Vice Chair of the Committee on Transportation, Public Works and Transit, and a member of the Health and Human Needs Committee and the Pesonnel Committee.
