Current state representative will bring strong financial background to City Hall
MILWAUKEE – Jason Fields, a current member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, today announced his candidacy for Milwaukee Comptroller.
“I’ve been honored to have the privilege of serving in the Wisconsin State Assembly working on financial issues that affect all Wisconsinites and where I have been able to apply my financial background and professionalism to producing real results for the people of Milwaukee.
“I’ve decided to announce my candidacy to be Milwaukee’s next Comptroller because I feel my background and financial expertise would help our city in ways we have not yet been able to achieve.
“We can all agree that Milwaukee needs a chief financial officer who understands the intersection of government, finance, and business to help move our city forward. We all want serious leadership and experience coming from every citywide office holder, and we would like to see a new era of transparency and accountability.
“I’m running for Comptroller because the true potential of this office has never been met, and we can do so much more to help city residents, community organizations, and businesses across Milwaukee. It’s time we reach that very potential and work together, as a community, to help make Milwaukee stronger than it has ever been.”
