Statement of Alderwoman JoCasta Zamarripa

April 13, 2022

This morning I was honored to attend the historic inauguration of our city’s 45th mayor, Cavalier Johnson.  Mayor Johnson is both the 1st elected African-American and the youngest person ever elected to the office of Mayor in the City of Milwaukee.

Mayor Johnson has served our city well as a member of the Common Council, as Common Council President and most recently as Acting Mayor, and I have no doubt that he will guide our community forward to become more equitable and prosperous.

As a lifelong south sider and a representative for the fastest growing constituency in both our great state of Wisconsin and the city of Milwaukee – our Latino/Latinx/Hispanic community – I want to wish Mayor Johnson the best in his new role, and I look forward to collaborating on important issues facing our city as we strive to build the best Milwaukee possible.
