David’s unique background and impressive record in the state legislature make him the clear choice to lead this community forward,” said District Attorney Chisholm. “I know the impact that David’s work around public safety has had at the state level, and I am excited to build on that work with him here in Milwaukee County. I fully endorse Rep. Crowley to be the next Milwaukee County Executive; he’s the right person for this job and I hope others will join me in voting for him on February 18.”
“District Attorney John Chisholm has been a leader in criminal justice reform not just in our community, but nationally. The work that the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office has been able to do around providing support for victims and lowering racial disparities has created a model for other communities around the country,” said Rep.
