Felesia A. Martin

7th District Supervisor

Dear Neighbor,

Milwaukee County, along with the City of Milwaukee, is currently going through a renewal and growth period. It is an honor and privilege to serve as your County Board Supervisor during this exciting period in our county.

Working collaboratively is our pathway forward to growth and prosperity for us all!  I look forward to working with the residents of the 7th District and its partners to restore pride, respect and decency in our communities. Together we can rebuild community trust and engagement by working with each other. 

I plan to host "meet and greet" sessions, as well as listening sessions, year-round throughout the district to ensure constituents have an opportunity to meet their county supervisor face to face. My goal is to let the constituents know that their voice is being heard and amplified through the County Board. Together we will make a difference and we will be inclusive. We strive to include everyone in our meetings as we work towards a better understanding of our needs and one another. 

Constituents are encouraged to contact my office with any issues and/or concerns or to schedule a meeting. I look forward to working with you.

All of Us Together!

Call my office at (414) 278-4241
