Steven Shea

8th District Supervisor

Dear Neighbors, 

It is my honor to serve you as Milwaukee County Supervisor for District 8. The 2020-2022 term is my second representing the south shore communities of St. Francis, Cudahy, South Milwaukee and portions of Oak Creek.

James Madison, the leading author of the U.S. Constitution, said, "The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty."

While you may not find all the information necessary to guard American democracy on this page and in my e-newsletters, I do want to give you important information about Milwaukee County government and how that relates to Milwaukee County south shore suburbs.

You can find my biography below. I want to provide District 8 with the best representation I can. That includes constituent services as well as bringing Milwaukee County resources back to our neighborhoods.

Please feel to contact my office via email or phone to offer your ideas and suggestions on how Milwaukee County government can work for the better of all its citizens.

Sincerely,
Steve
