“I am grateful and inspired by the support the residents of the 9th District showed to me as I’ve been gathering signatures,” Harmon said. “Even in this cold weather, voters have shown their excitement for our campaign’s vision.”
Harmon continued, “I look forward to connecting even more with District 9 residents and throughout the city to share our campaign’s plan for the future of Milwaukee.”
