Theodore Lipscomb, Sr., is known to work hard for his constituents and the community. He and his wife, Nicole, grew up in Milwaukee County's First District and are proud to raise their three children there too. Lipscomb was first elected to the County Board of Supervisors in 2008, won re-election in 2012, 2016, and 2018, and has been elected three times by his peers to serve as Board Chairman.
Lipscomb has regularly secured important park and parkway investments, added new bus routes and opposed cuts to critical public services. He also authored legislation that protected the public transit system from privatization and profiteers. Lipscomb was a lead sponsor of the 2012 Ready to Work Initiative which resulted in over 500 Milwaukeeans being trained and placed in jobs with an average wage above $15. His leadership on workforce development was later replicated and co-opted by one of its earliest detractors.
Lipscomb works for the public interest, he has exposed sweetheart contracts and unauthorized pay for political appointees, and has fought for greater transparency in our government. Year after year, he has been one of the most active authors of budget amendments in order to ensure responsible and balanced budgets.
Lipscomb fights for the First District and Milwaukee County!
In his 2018 re-election campaign, outside interests conspired to try and defeat Lipscomb. A shady website, mudslinging mailers, paid canvassers and ads on social media, radio, and TV were used to distort Lipscomb's record. An unprecedented effort was coordinated to silence him and end his service. In the end, more than $1 million was spent by these outside forces, but Lipscomb won re-election with about $28K spent on a grassroots campaign run by volunteers.
The next election is coming soon - April 2020. Will you help keep Lipscomb in the fight for all of us?
