Marina Dimitrijevic Announces Candidacy for Wisconsin’s 19th Assembly District 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 [...]
As anticipated and in advance of her fundraiser this evening, County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic has announced her candidacy for State Representative in Wisconsin’s 19th Assemby District. She is hoping to replace Rep. Jon Richards who is running for Wisconsin Attorney General. This announcement insures a Democratic Primary with Attorney Sara Geenen who has also [...]
I don’t believe this for a second. Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic said Tuesday she was mulling whether to run for state Rep. Jon Richards seat in the Legislature and won’t make a decision until after work on the county’s 2014 budget is complete next month.
“I haven’t made any decision about my political [...]
Whomever said politics makes for strange bedfellows certainly wasn’t kidding.

Yesterday I was writing this blog in my head but never got it down in electrons: essentially I was going to applaud County Executive Abele for putting together a good plan for getting info on the ACA out to MKE County…and I was going to lambast him for not spending enough to actually get the [...]
First, here’s the thoughts of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Editorial Board on the recent statements by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele that he’d veto a deal reached by the County Board with representatives from the Milwaukee Art Museum and the War Memorial. The deal does create a better balanced and more efficient governance structure between [...]
Yesterday The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s JSOnline website published two more articles that outline the dysfunction that continues to plague Milwaukee County government. Now I am not holding the county board blameless in this, but post Act 14, the county executive has consolidated powers…something he fully supported to the detriment of county residents…yet he continues to [...]
