Milwaukee won a big prize recently when the Democrats picked our city to host the 2020 Democratic National Convention.  The success in wooing the Democrats, by the city and private sector partners, gives Milwaukee an opportunity to reintroduce itself to a national audience.

And it’s a great story to tell.  New development – both downtown and across the city– reflects a solid local economy.  People and organizations throughout Milwaukee are working collaboratively to solve problems and improve neighborhoods.  Good things are happening here.

Mayor Tom Barrett is leading Milwaukee as it enters a new era.  In his presentation, he will reflect on the city’s achievements, the challenges, and his vision for Milwaukee over the next few years.
