County Executive David Crowley Announces Re-Election Campaign

MILWAUKEE - Today, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley officially announced that he will seek re-election in 2024.

“I could not be more proud of what we’ve accomplished for Milwaukee County residents over the last three and a half years,” said Crowley. “We worked with both parties to solve the fiscal crisis and secure the county’s financial future, we invested millions into small businesses across our community, and we passed three budgets in a row without major cuts to critical services and we are now starting to reinvest in our communities.

“When I took office, the pandemic was raging, the economy was in turmoil, and the county faced an unprecedented fiscal crisis. Our residents were facing immense hardships and many still are, but we've worked daily to help alleviate that burden. We invested millions into preventing evictions, funding opioid harm prevention and treatment programs, reenvisioning our approach to mental illness, and addressing violence in our communities. 

“We’ve been able to accomplish all of this and much more, and we’re just getting started. I’m excited to announce my campaign for re-election and I hope that Milwaukee County voters will trust me with another term.”

Crowley made history in 2020 by becoming the first Black person elected Milwaukee County Executive. Born and raised in Milwaukee, David is a graduate of Bay View High School and currently attends The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he has gone back to finish his degree. He resides on the Northwest side of Milwaukee with his wife, Ericka, and their three daughters. Crowley served in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 2017-2020 representing the 17th District on Milwaukee’s north side.

Crowley’s announcement is accompanied by a five-figure digital ad campaign touting the County Executive’s accomplishments during his first term. The new ad can be seen below.
