Message from the Village Administrator
It is my pleasure to serve as the appointed Administrator for the Village of West Milwaukee. I was born and raised in the Village and attended West Milwaukee High School (now West Milwaukee Intermediate School). I graduated from Central Texas College with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and then received my Master of Public Administration from Marist College. I started my career with West Milwaukee in 2001 in the Police dispatch center and eventually was appointed to my current position. The Village has a very dedicated team that consists of the Board, Village Staff, contract professionals and community leaders that guide the Village in a positive direction. It is a privilege to be part of this team and community.
