MILWAUKEE, WI – Representative David Crowley (D-Milwaukee) issued the following statement announcing his candidacy for re-election to the State Assembly.
“It has been an honor and a sincere privilege to represent the great constituents of the 17th Assembly District and the communities of which I have lived my entire life,” said Representative Crowley. “While I am proud of the many accomplishments of my first-term, there is still much work that needs to be done. I look forward to continuing the fight for our district, our city, and the entire State of Wisconsin.”
During his first year in the State Assembly, David was selected as Chair of the Milwaukee Democratic Legislative Caucus, Chair of the Bipartisan Black and Latino Caucus, and served on both the Speaker’s Task force on Foster Care and the Governor’s Task Force on Minority Unemployment. Rep. Crowley also passed bills relating to fully funding Wisconsin’s 2-1-1 hotline and creating safe spaces for victims of domestic violence.

Crowley introduced the “Safe Roads Save Lives Act”, a bill that would give Milwaukee law enforcement the 21st Century tools and technology needed to ensure safer roads. This bill received bipartisan support in the Assembly, a public hearing, and will be a focus of the Representative when the legislature comes back in 2019.
