SOUTH MILWAUKEE — South Milwaukee Mayor Erik Brooks today announced his campaign has raised in excess of $23,000 in the first 10 weeks of the race for Wisconsin’s 21st State Assembly District.
The deadline for funds to be included in the first campaign finance filing was Tuesday, June 30.
Brooks stated, “I’m honored and beyond thankful for the more than 160 donors who believe in our message of changing the culture in Madison. I announced my candidacy on April 22. Ten weeks later, in the midst of a public health crisis, a stay-at-home order, and a national economic downturn, we exceeded expectations beyond any measure.
“Today we are announcing in this short time we have raised over $23,000 in our bid to win the 21st State Assembly District. This could not have been possible without the support of so many of our community members, neighbors, and business owners across the district. I am so appreciative for that, and pledge to continue to earn the support of residents across the district ahead of the November 3 election.
“We are all excited and ready for the general election this November. We’re working harder than ever in these challenging times, connecting with voters in every part of our community in unique ways. The response has been terrific. People are telling me it’s time we focus on the real issues, not politics, and get to work bringing people together to solve problems, together, Madison.”
