MILWAUKEE – State Representative David Crowley today announced his candidacy for Milwaukee
“When I look at Milwaukee County, I see a lot of opportunity: we have some of the most beautiful
places to live in the country, a nationally recognized park system, and a thriving downtown area,”
said Rep. Crowley. “There are a lot of exciting things happening in our community, but just a few
miles away from all of this excitement, many of our residents are struggling.
“Growing up in a struggling family in Milwaukee County, I know what it’s like to be reliant on County
services and what that really means to people in our community,” continued Crowley. “Having spent
time working for the County, I also know what it’s like to provide these vital services to residents. I
believe these experiences uniquely qualify me for this office.”
Representative Crowley currently serves Wisconsin’s 17th Assembly District, representing almost
60,000 residents in the state legislature. As a member of the State Assembly, David sits on the
Criminal Justice and Public Safety, Small Business Development, Workforce Development,
Transportation, and Jobs and Economy Committees. He is a member of the Wisconsin Housing and
Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) Board of Directors, the Chair of the Milwaukee Caucus,
the Chair of the Black Caucus, and the Co-Chair of the Black and Latino Caucus.
“The next Milwaukee County Executive needs to be a uniter, someone who can close the gap
between our thriving and struggling communities, work across political lines, and connect working
people with our business community,” said Crowley. “As a legislator, I have built my reputation on
being a bridge builder, and I will do the same as County Executive.”
Representative Crowley is a member of numerous community organizations including the ACLU,
Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals, and the Milwaukee NAACP.
Representative Crowley attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and currently lives in
Milwaukee with his wife, Ericka, and his two young daughters. David and Ericka are expecting their
third child this fall.
The non-partisan spring Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, February 18th. The General
Election will be on Tuesday, April 7th. For more information about David Crowley and his campaign
