About Supervisor Wasserman

Sheldon Wasserman was elected to second term on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors on April 3, 2018, to represent the residents of Milwaukee County’s 3rd District, which includes Milwaukee’s East Side, the Village of Shorewood and most of the Village of Whitefish Bay.

Dr. Wasserman is a Milwaukee native. He graduated from John Marshall High School in 1979. He also attended Marquette University and UW-Milwaukee, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa. He earned a number of academic awards, including the John F. Kennedy Outstanding Leadership Award Scholarship. He went on to medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where he graduated with a doctorate in medicine in 1987. He completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1991.

In November 1994, he fulfilled a life-long dream of being elected to represent Wisconsin’s 22nd Assembly District where he served 14 years until 2009. He was then appointed by Governor Jim Doyle to the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board, where he served 4 ½ years, serving the last 1 ½ as chair. He led the re-write of Chapter Med 10 of the Administrative Code, which covers unprofessional conduct of physicians.

When long-time County Supervisor Gerry Broderick announced his retirement, Wasserman returned to the political trail knocking on thousands of doors seeking to represent the residents of District 3 on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor Wasserman’s top priority is serving his constituents. He is also looking forward to addressing the challenges facing our parks, transportation, domes, zoo and General Mitchell International Airport.

For the 2018 - 2020 term, Supervisor Wasserman was appointed Vice Chair of the Parks, Energy, & Environment Committee, and to the Health & Human Needs Committee, as well as the Finance & Audit Committee.

Dr. Wasserman practices Obstetrics/Gynecology at Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital and has delivered over 4,500 babies during his career.

His great passion for travel has taken him to six continents around the world. He has climbed mountains, hiked through jungles, tracked through deserts, rolled down sand dunes, crawled through caves and has gone scuba diving with great white sharks.

Wasserman is married to his high school sweetheart, Wendy Wasserman, who is a Speech Pathologist for the Milwaukee Public School System. They have three children, Joseph, Lauren and Benjamin.
