MILWAUKEE – Deanna Alexander, Milwaukee County Supervisor for the 18th District today released a statement formally announcing her candidacy for election:
“It has been an honor to serve as a representative of the people in Milwaukee County government since 2012. I have stayed faithful to the concerns of the 18th District and the residents of Milwaukee County at large by voting ‘NO’ to the Wheel Tax, prioritizing public safety, and voting against cuts to the most essential of government services. I was the only board member to support cutting her own salary, and have become known as a whistleblower for alerting the public to shady politics and wasteful spending.
Because of this, I’m not always a popular person with Milwaukee’s entrenched politicians, but I’m willing to continue doing what it takes to make Milwaukee County a better place for us and our children.
I believe that I have represented the district well and hope that my decisions have made my neighbors proud. I am pleased to formally announce my candidacy for re-election to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors in the Spring 2018 election.
I look forward to continuing connecting with residents as I walk our neighborhoods and knock on doors throughout the winter to talk one-on-one about next steps in Milwaukee County!
The general election will take place on April 3, 2018.”
