5th District Supervisor

Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your confidence in electing me to serve you another term. Since I was first elected in April 2016, I have made it my mission to amplify the voices and concerns of District 5 residents. I would like to reiterate how much I have enjoyed meeting neighbors, supporting organizations and working on behalf of the community.

I am excited to share that I am taking on more leadership roles. I now serve as Vice Chairwoman of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. In addition to serving on the Parks, Energy and Environment Committee, I am now chairing the Economic and Community Development Committee. I sit on the Milwaukee Public Library and Art Museum Boards of Trustees, and Local Progress' National Board, which works to support, connect and unite progressive, locally elected officials and allied organizations from across the nation.

I have continued to attend many neighborhood and community meetings where I have been able to engage and discuss district issues with many of you. I have continued to sponsor legislation and work with you to make our community better for all. The work we have accomplished together has been great, and I look forward to achieving more for our district in the coming year.

Please consider reviewing our webpage to learn the latest news. Also, I encourage you to reach out to my office so that we can keep you up to date on any new developments or events in the district.
