County Executive David Crowley

County Executive David Crowley David Crowley is the Milwaukee County Executive.

As a lifelong Milwaukee resident, County Executive David Crowley knows as well as anyone that Milwaukee County is truly a tale of two counties. He has lived the pain and struggle that many in our communities face every day, and he knows the joy of bringing people together to conquer those struggles. The fundamental tenet of Executive Crowley’s administration is to build bridges to bring people together, not walls that keep them apart. Growing up in a working-class family in Milwaukee’s 53206 neighborhood, David was no stranger to hardship. As a child, David’s family moved around frequently, often as a result of evictions. He lived in a home with multiple family members who suffered from mental illness and drug addiction, and saw first-hand the impact that these issues have on our community. This is personal to David. David credits the Milwaukee youth organization Urban Underground for saving his life. He found a support network and a community of people that cared about him, and helped guide him to public service. While still in high school, David served as a community justice coordinator with Urban Underground, giving him his start in community organizing. He joined AmeriCorps when he turned 18, and worked with several other community organizations including Project Return, Safe & Sound Inc., and COA Youth and Family Centers. David also worked as a legislative aide for the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors and the Wisconsin State Senate. David was motivated by the public servants around him to forge his own path in elected service, and was chosen by the 60,000 citizens of the 17th Assembly District to represent them in the Wisconsin State Legislature in Madison. In two terms in the Assembly, David sat on the Energy and Utilities, State Affairs, Workforce Development and Transportation committees and was the ranking member on the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. He served as the chair of the Milwaukee Delegation, the chair of the Black Caucus, and the co-chair of the Black and Latino Caucus. He also served on the Boards of Directors of both the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) and the Outreach Community Health Centers (OCHC). David is a member of numerous community organizations including the ACLU, Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals and the Milwaukee NAACP. He attended Bay View High School, UW-Milwaukee and currently lives in Milwaukee with his wife, Ericka, and his three young daughters. He was elected to serve as Milwaukee County Executive on April 7, 2020 and was sworn on May 4, 2020.

I understand the frustration many of you are feeling regarding the decision to temporarily suspend Milwaukee County Transit System nightly bus service starting at 10P. The decision was not an easy one. I know this puts people who rely on these services in tough positions. Hopefully, this video will help answer your questions. We are all in this, together.

Again and again, Milwaukee has protested police brutality and racist policies. What legacy will these marchers leave?

Whether we're talking about gerrymandering, whether we’re talking about criminal justice reform, whether we talk about education or income inequality, this is the time to really be having those tough conversations about the policy changes that we absolutely need to have in order for folks to feel like that they're in this together.

“We’ve heard the people speak and they want change. They want meaningful change," said Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell Lucas.

I do not believe in photo ops; I believe in leading by example. While we confront injustice, we must also take time to care for our communities. We must continue the fight for systemic change and when the fight gets messy, we must be ready and willing to pick up a broom.

A fundamental tenet of the American idea is that every person has the freedom to make their voice heard. What we have seen over the past few days is not random, unjustified unrest. What we are seeing are marginalized groups of people making their voices heard in a society that tries harder every day to render them voiceless.

Change is desperately needed. The murder of Mr. Floyd was another in a long line of unacceptable, unjustifiable, and indefensible killings of black men and women at the hands of police. The status quo is unsustainable. We need fundamental change in the way we handle police-community relations, the way we treat communities of color, and the way we allow each and every person in our society to make their voice heard in our democracy.

The time for change is always now. I stand with my brothers and sisters who are making their voices heard and hope that the events of this weekend will serve as a turning point in this nation when it comes to race relations and how we treat our fellow Americans.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin arrested, charged with murder in George Floyd's death: Updates

In the midst of a pandemic that has already taken such a toll on people of color, the death of George Floyd is another untenable example of how racism is the real public health crisis our community is facing.

There are no words that can rectify this injustice. Only action can come of this.

Using dignity and respect as our guideposts, Milwaukee County will continue to partner with both community and police to provide training, trauma response and mental health care. We will continue to provide racial equity training for all our employees. We will work toward reforming our contracts and policies so that we can address implicit bias and promote equitable practices at all levels of government.

We must reach out to each other, and we cannot respond to violence with violence.

Let me be clear—these injustices will not go away until we acknowledge and address the hundreds of years of racism that brought us here. It will not go away until our policies serve the interests of all our residents. And it will not go away until we lift up communities of color to the decision-making table.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was arrested Friday days after video circulated of him holding his knee to George Floyd's neck.

Racism declared a public health crisis in Ohio's most populated county

We need more of this across America. I am proud that here in Wisconsin, Milwaukee County is leading the charge to eliminate systematic racism, end racial disparities, and advance racial equity. As the first elected African American County Executive, I bring personal lived experiences of the devastating effects of racism and my administration will make every decision through a lens of racial equity.

By ending systematic racism and achieving racial equity, we can realize our vision of making Milwaukee County the healthiest county in Wisconsin!

Milwaukee County's 18 suburban municipalities issue stay-at-home order

I commend the public health officers representing the 19 Milwaukee County municipalities for operating with urgency to put orders in place that protect our communities. I understand this is a time of confusion and uncertainty and it is easy to lose faith. This is why I rely on our public health officers and the data available to guide the way. I remain committed to working toward a safe reopening based on the best information available. You can’t have a healthy economy without a healthy community. The well-being of all residents will always be my top priority.
