Earnell Lucas For Mayor Of Milwaukee

Bold. Courageous. Leadership.

Milwaukee is my hometown. It belongs to all of us, and we belong here, together. I grew up here. This is where my wife and I raised a family. I love Milwaukee because of what it has meant to me, and for what it can become. It can be so much more.

For Milwaukee to rise, it first needs a vision. Then, we need to act, and follow-through on our promises to achieve our collective goals. While that may sound simple, it will not be easy. Tough decisions need to be made with knowledge gained through experience, compassion & empathy.

My service to Milwaukee has been built on a foundation of courage, integrity, and trust. My experience has been forged by a career in the Milwaukee Police Department, where I rose to the rank of captain. It is also where I was knocked down, getting wounded in the line of duty.

Everybody gets knocked down in life… what’s important is that you get back up. Not only did I get back up – I returned to active duty. As I worked my way up the ranks, I learned what it takes to organize and lead an organization made up of many different people.

Milwaukee has been knocked down, and it is time to rise again. For that to happen, we need a mayor who will proactively lead the way by making tough decisions and getting things done.

As your mayor, I will also provide a source of inspiration. My story will connect with every child who grows up here and calls Milwaukee home. Our young people need to realize that anything is possible. If a young boy who was raised in the Hillside Project can rise through the police department, ascend to the highest levels of leadership in Major League Baseball, and then come home to serve as Sheriff… then they can accomplish anything. I am living proof.

What sets me apart is that I’m not a career politician – this is a strength. Up to this point, the only public office I have ever run for is the office I hold now – Sheriff of Milwaukee County. My goals are not for myself, my goals are about making positive change for our city.

A New Vision For Milwaukee

My why for running is that I love Milwaukee. I have the critical life experiences and the vision to help our city rise to its fullest potential. My vision for our city is that every child from every corner of this city will have the opportunity to unlock the limitless possibilities this world has to offer.

It’s a vision of safety… a city where from Bay View to Harambee to River West, all citizens are safe walking their streets, driving their cars and enjoying their parks.

And it’s a vision where growth, equality, and opportunity can be found on every corner of every single neighborhood. A vision where the health of every single resident is nurtured and cared for. A vision where your side of the aisle matters far less than your willingness to roll up your sleeves and make a difference.

I have a vision for a Milwaukee that is rising. And I have the critical life experiences, ability, passion and willingness to work with every like-minded entity, individual, and organization to bring that vision to life and to help Milwaukee rise to its fullest potential.
