“Throughout the summer we have heard calls for reform within the police department to decrease the dependence on police response to non-violent situations," said Alderwoman Dodd.

Complete the 2020 Census today! - Milwaukee Community Journal

The Census is vitally important as it impacts our funding for community projects and resources, and ensures we have fair and accurate representation in our government.

We must make sure we have an accurate count now because the data we collect today will impact our community for the next decade. If you have not yet taken the Census I encourage you to do so today. It’s one simple way to have a big impact on the community.

Walked alongside State Representatives David Bowen and Jonathan Brostoff on the 63rd day of a peaceful March for Justice and Equality for my Black and Brown brothers and sisters.

Don’t believe the narratives that have worked so hard to discredit the activist's efforts to fight for and demand change in our criminal Justice System and to hold police officers accountable.

I have been so honored to witness their skill, knowledge, and detail in organizing a well-structured peaceful March.

As we celebrate our Nation Independence day, it is our hope that you refrain from buying and using fireworks in the City of Milwaukee.

Please consider putting the well-being of members of our community first - fireworks can trigger PTSD and cause fear and anxiety in small children and pets.

Additionally, this is a reminder that residents can be fined up to $1,000 if found by Milwaukee Police or the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department to be in violation of the city ordinance related to fireworks.

If someone is disrupting the peace on your block or neighborhood with fireworks and you do not feel comfortable confronting them, please call the Milwaukee Police Department Non-Emergency - District 4: (414) 935-7243 or
District 7: (414) 935-7272, respectively.

Also, if you are celebrating in a city or county park this weekend, please take care to clean up after yourselves and put trash in the trash cans provided at the location or consider bringing a trash bag in case the garbage receptacles are full.

It truly is not fair to the residents who live near those public spaces to have to clean up after you. Today, my 5-year-old and I spent time cleaning up water bottles and trash in our beloved neighborhood at Nash Park.

Happy Holidays!

HAPPY JUNETEENTH DAY!

In American History on June 19, 1865, slaves in Galveston, Texas gathered to hear the announcement delivered by Union army Maj. General Gorden Granger that they were freed from the bondage of slavery.
This announcement came two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

"Til now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast"

Visiting residents and businesses today in the district after the riots and looting that took place throughout the city of Milwaukee in the late night and wee hours of the morning.

Rioting and looting is an irresponsible and ineffective way to handle injustices in the judicial system and misconduct by law enforcement. It is a destructive behavior that incites more violence.

However, I DO support those who peacefully protest in efforts to bring about equity and justice for all.

Please stay safe Milwaukee and let's go about seeking constructive change in our judicial system and law enforcement. We are better together as one unit, and working toward the same goal.

I am honored to have earned the continued support of my neighbors in the 5th Aldermanic District. And I am looking forward to the work ahead of us as we navigate the unpredictability of Covid-19 in the coming days, spurring economic development, fighting for a better quality of life.

As Alderwoman, I am dedicated to providing responsive and accountable leadership. This includes, putting the best interest of our neighborhoods first and continuing our work together in the weeks and months ahead as we take on the challenges of this global pandemic. We will make it through this challenge together, and we must help each other stay healthy, stay safe, and get back on our feet.

I want to thank everyone who helped fuel this campaign from start to finish. My family and I are incredibly grateful for your support. Stay healthy and safe.

A sincere thank you to everyone who has supported my re-election campaign. This is not something you can take on alone and I have been honored to have you by my side throughout this process. Tony, LA, and I feel blessed to have you in our lives.

We will not have the full results until next week, but I am confident in what we have accomplished. If I am fortunate enough to earn a full term as 5th District Alderwoman, I will continue to work hard in my service to our community and make Milwaukee a better place for us all.

Again, thank you so much for your support and I look forward to continuing our work together!

About Nikiya Dodd

“I will continue to work hard to earn your trust in improving our neighborhoods, delivering efficient city services to all, and working together to keep our neighborhoods safe. That is my pledge to you.”

Meet Nikiya

As Alderwoman, with only 12 months in office, Nikiya sponsored legislation to add over 200 jobs to the 5th Aldermanic District by rezoning underutilized land for the development of a 325,000 square-foot building and future property tax revenue to the City. Alderwoman Dodd also sponsored a resolution urging the Wisconsin State Legislature to allow the City to extend benefits to those in domestic partnerships.

Nikiya hosted the inaugural, day-long tour for neighbors, investors, and community members to Explore the 5th District. Explore 5th District tour is a first of its kind to showcase vibrant neighborhoods, parks, and schools, thriving restaurants, and historical sites, as well as opportunities for business growth and development and homeownership on Milwaukee’s Northwest Side.
