Ron Johnson has worked with Jerome Smith Sr. to establish the Joseph Project, a local initiative that is
connecting people with good-paying jobs. The Joseph Project is breaking the cycle of poverty and
bringing Milwaukee together – one person at a time.
Jerome Smith Sr., Joseph Project co-founder: “The folks we work with love the Joseph Project, and I
love the fact that it provides hope and opportunity for folks in our community who had been left to believe that all that was available to them was minimum wage, temp jobs, government programs, or crime.”
Michael, Joseph Project participant: “Here I am, making good money, supporting my family, my
friends, giving back to my community. Everything I hoped for and wished for, I’m doing it.”
Alvin, Joseph Project participant: “Ron Johnson is working with the inner-city to help me and others
find a brighter future. He is helping heal our communities and families through economic growth and
Ron Johnson is a problem solver, not a politician. He’s looking to bring real change to the community and he deserves our support for doing so.
