MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee County Board Supervisor Supreme Moore Omokunde today announced his candidacy for the 17th District of the Wisconsin State Assembly.
Supervisor Moore Omokunde stated, “I’ve spent more than a decade working on the most pressing issues in our community as a member of the Milwaukee County Board since 2015 and as a Community Organizer, including five years, right here, in the Sherman Park Community.
“During this great pandemic health and economic crisis, this 2020 election is arguably the most important election in the history of the United States. The expansion of health care, economic recovery, economic equity, criminal justice reform, and voting rights will all be on the ballot and on the legislative agenda of the next Wisconsin legislative session.
“I have the legislative experience, demonstrated leadership skills, and passion to help our community leverage both Federal and State resources which are so desperately needed to sustain our community. I would be honored to serve as your next representative in the Wisconsin State Assembly. Growing up as the son of Congresswoman Gwen Moore and Rev. Dr. Tolokun Omokunde, I have been taught that public service is an honorable and impactful way to improve the quality of life in our community.
“With your support, I hope to continue the excellent work and constituent services of State Representative and current County Executive David Crowley. Today I announce my candidacy and look forward to earning the trust and support of every resident in our community.”
