ISSUES 

Rev. Dr. Russell Antonio Goodwin is running for County Supervisor to fight to transform Milwaukee County District 18 into one of the most prosperous districts in the state where constituents feel safe to purchase homes, start businesses, enjoy our parks, entertainment, and any family festivities.

SAFETY 

There have been many efforts and attempts to defund the Sheriff's Department; however, Rev. Dr. Russell Antonio Goodwin has fought to keep the Sheriff's Department funded as Milwaukee County encompasses 4 of the top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in Wisconsin. He is also a firm believer in restoring the community trust and partnership between the Sheriff's Department and the community. He also believes in accountability; that is why he has worked closely with the Sheriff's Department on many issues facing the Department. In the future Rev., Dr. Goodwin would like to see the expansion of the CART team to combat mental illness in our community through medical awareness rather than the focus of law enforcement. 

TRANSPORTATION 

Rev. Dr. Goodwin, Sr., has been working to improve our County funded highways and roads to lead us into the future of transportation. He must continue to fight to maintain and improve our highways and roads.
He has also worked hard collaboratively with transit to ensure great service in an ever-changing world. The Milwaukee County Transit System is one of the best in the country, and he will continue to work to help the system move from a great to an even greater system. One thing that is important to him is to continue reducing our reliance on fuel and continue moving towards a combination of fuel and battery-powered technology, which helps us reduce our carbon footprint and costs. 

PARKS 

He has been working on creative ways to generate revenue for the Parks Department to keep them adequately funded without adding new fees or increases. Milwaukee County's Parks are some of the best in the nation, and he will continue to work to keep them beautiful and on the cutting edge of green initiatives. 

FIGHTING HOMELESSNESS 

 Over the past few years, I have worked very hard to help fight the homeless issue facing Milwaukee County. Milwaukee County has a great Homelessness Task Force, and we were able to assist many people living in parks and county park-n-ride lots within District 18. It is a real issue that I have taken very seriously and have done my best to ensure these individuals are given the help and assistance they have needed. We have also helped people facing eviction and foreclosure and connected them to the right individuals to get the proper help needed.
