Milwaukee County, Tuesday November 28, 2017: After twenty-three years of serving as a Milwaukee County Supervisor Michael Mayo, Sr. will not seek re-election to the office. The announcement is being made at this time to give potential candidates ample opportunity to enter the race and make their case directly to the citizens of the Seventh Supervisory District and for constituents to be able to make an informed decision as to who they would have represent them on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.
Supervisor Mayo sincerely wishes to thank his wife and family, the residents of the Seventh District and all his other many supporters for their roles in allowing him the honor of representing the District. He also encourages all potential candidates for the seat to spend sufficient time in the community meeting and understanding resident concerns, challenges and aspirations.
Not ready to retire, Mayo says he plans to pursue other activities and ventures where he can utilize both his pre-government business experience and knowledge of available economic development tools to continue to improve Milwaukee County and the surrounding communities for the foreseeable future.
