About Supervisor Dimitrijevic

Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic has the distinction of being the youngest woman elected County Supervisor when she took office in 2004 at the age of 22. She was subsequently re-elected to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors in 2008 and 2012. On April 16, 2012, Supervisor Dimitrijevic was elected by her peers to serve as Chairwoman of the County Board of Supervisors. She is the youngest person in the history of Milwaukee County, and only the second woman, to hold that office.

Her last County Board meeting as Chairwoman was in July of 2015, as she decided to return to her supervisory role and continue her work in the community.

Since being elected to office, Supervisor Dimitrijevic has fought energetically on legislative issues that help the community she was born and raised in and now represents. Her legislative agenda has been focused on supporting the needs of working families, adopting higher energy and environmental standards in Milwaukee County, and passing a socially and fiscally responsible budget each year. She has had legislative victories in the areas of equality, responsible economic development, rehabilitative incarceration programs and environmental protection. Supervisor Dimitrijevic is currently working on civil rights issues, which affect our immigrant and LGBT communities, and dedicated funding for parks and transit.

Marina, the daughter of Serbian immigrants, is a lifelong resident of Milwaukee's south side. She is an honors graduate of Marquette University where she earned a bachelor's degree in political science and Spanish. Marina also graduated Summa Cum Laude with her master's in nonprofit management and leadership from UW-Milwaukee. The 4th Supervisory District is one of two County Board districts with a Latino majority.

Fluent in Spanish, Supervisor Dimitrijevic attended the University of Madrid in Spain as a foreign exchange student. As a participant in Marquette University's Les Aspin Center for Government in Washington, D.C., she worked in the office of Congressman Jerry Kleczka, a well-respected leader who served Milwaukee's south side. Later, she traveled to Kenya working with newly democratically elected officials. Prior to her election to the County Board, Dimitrijevic worked as a paralegal at Friebert, Finerty and St. John and as a public relations intern for the Milwaukee Common Council.

Marina is known for her commitment to community involvement. She is an active member in over 30 civic organizations in her district. Marina has held over 100 town hall meetings in her elected career and has visited each of the 19 communities in Milwaukee County by bus.

Supervisor Dimitrijevic and her family live in the heart of Bay View on Milwaukee's south side.
