Milwaukee (January 8, 2016)— The Milwaukee Police Association (MPA) has examined the candidates running for office and endorses Deanna Alexander for the Milwaukee County Board.
“Deanna Alexander has gone above and beyond to support law enforcement. She has stood side by side with our members and their families when others stood loudly against us. She is a true leader who stands out in front of many other community leaders. We are proud to support such an outstanding civic leader,” said Mike Crivello, President of the MPA.
“I am honored and humbled by this vote of confidence from the MPA and grateful for this endorsement from our public servants in law enforcement,” said Alexander.
“Milwaukee County is a great place largely in part to the work police officers do every day pursuing criminals and protecting residents. I know I join many other residents in commending law enforcement for the willingness to put their lives on the line every day and I thank the MPA for its support as I seek reelection to the Milwaukee County Board,” she continued.
Deanna Alexander has served as the elected supervisor for the northwest corner of Milwaukee County since 2012, using her background in accounting and auditing to be a lookout for government actions that would concern the public. She is a mother of two, a former enlisted soldier in the Wisconsin Army National Guard, and has made Milwaukee her home for the last decade. Alexander was formally recognized with an MPA commendation for leadership at a community ceremony in Milwaukee in 2015.
The election will be held on April 5, 2016.
