I want to extend my sincere congratulations and well wishes to Mayor Cavalier Johnson. Yesterday was historic. Not only did the people of Milwaukee elect a new mayor for the first time in 18 years, but Johnson becomes the first African American elected as Milwaukee’s mayor, and the first millennial as well.
I’m confident that Mayor Johnson is the right person for the job. During his tenure as Common Council President, and in his months serving as acting mayor, he has shown a willingness to collaborate, listen to the people, and has already taken steps to address important issues facing our city such as reckless driving, strengthening neighborhoods and repairing our relationship with the state.
In the coming weeks and months, I look forward to working with Mayor Johnson to tackle the challenges that are in front of us as we work to build the best Milwaukee possible.
Congratulations, Mayor Johnson!
