Milwaukee – County Executive David Crowley made the following statement today regarding his endorsement of Cavalier Johnson for Mayor of Milwaukee:

“As a region, county, and city, we stand at the precipice of monumental change, as well as opportunity; a moment that requires vision, creativity and courage from our leaders.

When I had the honor of taking office as County Executive less than two years ago, I committed to serving Milwaukee County residents with fortitude and to leave no stone unturned in accomplishing the County Vision of making Milwaukee the healthiest county in Wisconsin.

That passion and commitment is stronger today than ever before. We have made tremendous strides in achieving racial equity – yet we have much more work to do, and I will not stop until we accomplish the goals we set forth.

I am also a firm believer in the importance of collaboration, the impact of synergy, and the value of efficiencies.

As we collectively work to tackle the challenges ahead and build a more resilient County and City, I am certain that the relationship between the County Executive and the Mayor will be fundamental in accomplishing success.

That is why I am proud to formally endorse Cavalier Johnson for Mayor of Milwaukee.

Mayor Johnson is the right person for the job. He has lived experience as a lifelong Milwaukee resident, raised in poverty, and as a graduate of Milwaukee Public Schools. He has a track record of service in the community, around the world, and on behalf of his constituents as a City Alderman and Common Council President. And he has a strategic approach, imaginative style, and fortitude. He has demonstrated in his first weeks in office as Acting Mayor that he is the visionary leader city residents need and deserve.

I’ve seen firsthand the positive impact Cavalier has had on our communities, and I know he will continue to do right by the great people of Milwaukee once elected Mayor.

I am looking forward to continuing to partner with him as we make our neighborhoods safer, address racial inequities, and keep growing our economy.”
