Supreme Moore Omokunde
I am Supreme Moore Omokunde, humbly seeking an opportunity to represent you on the Milwaukee County Board.

I have received superb training in community leadership through the National Americorps Program, Public Allies. As a Community Organizer, I have over a decade of experience in effective multi-cultural engagement with families and youth through the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA, Riverwest Neighborhood Assn., Sherman Park Neighborhood Association and TrU Skool. I am also a member of the Democratic Party.

I come to this task with a keen interest in policy under the jurisdiction of the County Board that will more effectively utilize our public parks system to engage youth and bring community stakeholders, the District Attorney's office and the court system together to promote peaceful engagement, educational opportunity and upward mobility to our most valuable asset, our youth. I will protect the County's stewardship over the well-being of our elders through programs such as Family Care and resist balancing the budget on the backs of seniors. I will work diligently for Transportation solutions to enhance citizen access throughout the County including to our differently abled populations. Transportation policy is the key to promote economic development, to create jobs and to sustain our environment.

My passion for public service began at age eight when I joined my parents, Gwen Moore and Tolokun Omokunde, in working relentlessly for a better community. I have named my campaign, "Supreme 4 the People", because my mission is to serve you. As I travel from door to door, I hope to meet you personally. Please consider voting for me and joining me on a journey of service for the people
