✨If you follow the City Channel, you may have seen today’s Feature Friday honoree, Chris Lee, hard at work ensuring that public meetings run smoothly! As a Staff Assistant in the Council Records Section of the Office of the Common Council-City Clerk, Chris handles the behind-the-scenes administrative work to set up and arrange meetings for various City committees and other bodies, staffs their meetings, takes meeting minutes, and handles legislative files. He enjoys working with professionals to advance their missions, in the process learning from their deliberations and gaining insight about the various important topics that those bodies handle.

Following graduation from college, the City of Milwaukee was Chris’s first major employer. From 2007 to 2010, Chris performed receptionist duties for the License Division. From 2008 to 2011, he worked as a License Specialist, at which time he was promoted to Staff Assistant. He has been serving in his current role for nearly ten years.

Chris chose to work for the City because he comes from a political science background and enjoys public service. Milwaukee is his home, where his family resides. His City of Milwaukee employment has given him the opportunity not only to gain professional experience, but also to raise a family. In his job as well as in his private life, he tries his best to help the City to the best of his ability, be part of the solution, and contribute as much as possible. Thank you, Chris, for your steadfast service to the City and its residents!

✨There’s a familiar phrase that goes, “Are you working hard, or hardly working?” For today’s Superhero Saturday honorees, the answer is a resounding, “working hard”!

While the Department of Employee Relations (DER) Labor and Compliance Office may consist of only four staff members – Nicole Fleck, Labor Negotiator; Katherine Holiday, Human Resources Compliance Officer; Anise Thrower, Human Resources Representative; and Johnnie Nelson, Leave Administration Coordinator – they perform numerous functions assisting all City departments.

Among other duties, the Labor and Compliance Office helps set policies, hears employee grievances, negotiates collective bargaining agreements for the City, and administers FMLA leave for general City employees. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Labor and Compliance Office has quickly formulated new policies and procedures to minimize exposure risks for City employees while maintaining the City’s core services. They have quickly adapted changing regulation and health guidelines, including implementing newly mandated leave and mask policies.

The Labor and Compliance Office works tirelessly to ensure the safety of City employees and the City’s continued compliance with employment laws. Thank you, Nicole, Katherine, Anise, and Johnnie, for working hard on behalf of the City of Milwaukee!

✨Today’s Feature Friday star is a gentleman who serves in the Office of the City Attorney, Ben Roovers! Currently celebrating his fifth anniversary with the City of Milwaukee, Ben was hired as an Assistant City Attorney I. He has been promoted twice, and he now works as an Assistant City Attorney III.

In his current role, Ben spends a lot of time working with elected officials to figure out ways they can implement their ideas while making sure that the City doesn’t run afoul of the law. In that way, he helps the City by protecting it from legal action while also helping the City’s representatives do their job effectively.

Ben worked in private practice for several years prior to joining the City, and he feels like he’s found a home in government service. Says Ben, “I enjoy working for an employer that isn’t motivated by profits. The goal of the City and its employees is to provide services for the people who live here. I think that’s a noble and worthwhile way to spend a workday.”

And we agree! Congratulations, Ben, and thank you for your service!
