Nikiya Harris has won the special election to represent District 2 on the Milwaukee County Board.
The seat was formerly held by Toni Clark, who resigned just before being convicted of a felony.
Milwaukee County First would like to congratulate Ms. Harris on her victory, coming the first time she ran for public office.
MCF would also like to congratulate Wallace White for a race well run and to the people of District 2 for having two such fine people willing to stand up and represent them on the Board.
Supervisor Elect Harris will be a strong asset to the Milwaukee County Board, her constituents and to all of Milwaukee county. She has expressed a strong desire to restore the transit system, the parks and the social safety net that has been allowed to deteriorate over the past decade.
We look forward to working with her in these efforts and in making Milwaukee County once again a place where people will want to work, to play and to live.
