MILWAUKEE – Earnell Lucas will be the featured speaker at a Milwaukee Press Club Newsmaker Luncheon on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
Lucas, a former captain with the Milwaukee Police Department and currently a vice president of security for Major League Baseball is seeking to become Milwaukee County’s next sheriff.
Lucas will take questions from a panel of journalists and from the audience at the luncheon, set for 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Newsroom Pub, 137 E. Wells St. The event is open to the public.
Lucas registered as a candidate in the 2018 Democratic Primary for the sheriff’s position before Sheriff David Clarke announced he would leave in June for a position in the Department of Homeland Security. After Clarke’s announcement, Lucas said he would seek an appointment from Governor Scott Walker to replace Clarke. Federal officials have not confirmed that Clarke will receive an appointment.
Lucas, a Milwaukee native, is a graduate of Marquette University.
