Whither Theo Lipscomb

Unsurprisingly, former Milwaukee County Supervisor and former Milwaukee County Board Chairman Theo Lipscomb has landed on his feet after losing his race for Milwaukee County Executive. I am a little surprised on where he’s landed. I expected something more directly related to politcs, but this does seem like a perfect fit. From my LinkedIn notifications:

The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) has named the former chairperson of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors to lead its local investments in affordable housing, businesses, health, and jobs in underserved (sic) communities, especially those where a history of racial discrimination has left lasting scars.

Theodore Lipscomb, who has spent the last 12 years as a Milwaukee County Supervisor, will serve as the new executive director of LISC Milwaukee and build on the organization’s $184 million portfolio of community development support throughout the city. Over the last 25 years, LISC Milwaukee programs and capital have leveraged more than $604 million in total development activity.

In his new role, Lipscomb will draw on his extensive work at the county helping to establish budgets, invest in parks and transit, and fight for new resources that benefit residents and communities.

Best of luck to Mr. Lipscomb!
