Proven Results Make Marina the Clear Choice
Marina Dimitrijevic, Chairwoman of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors, has announced her candidacy for the Wisconsin State Assembly with broad community support. Chairwoman Dimitrijevic has been elected to represent Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood located in Assembly District 19 for over 9 years. Assembly District 19 includes Milwaukee’s Bay View, East Side, Downtown, Riverwest and Third Ward neighborhoods.
“I will be ready on day one to fight for Milwaukee in Madison. As I talk with residents I represent in District 19, many say they are concerned about the current direction of our state,” said Dimitrijevic.
United States Congresswoman Gwen Moore and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett are supporting Marina for the Assembly. “I am honored to have the support of two of our city’s most respected leaders,” said Dimitrijevic
Milwaukee is the economic engine of our state and Marina will focus on creating more family supporting jobs. SEIU Wisconsin State Council and the Milwaukee County Deputy Sheriff’s Association have endorsed Marina for the Assembly.
“Wisconsin’s workers are part of the solution to our economy rebounding. I am proud to have growing support from the hard working men and women in labor who make up the backbone of our economy,” said Dimitrijevic.
Marina’s positive campaign will provide voters with a clear picture of her progressive values and proven record as a leader on issues like public transit, access to healthcare, and environmental sustainability. As a proud graduate of Milwaukee Public Schools, Marina knows firsthand how important it is for Wisconsin to invest in strong, public schools that provide opportunities for all in Wisconsin to succeed.
Marina lives with her husband Eduardo in the heart of Bay View and loves spending time with their family: Karen, Mathias, and Lucia.
