milw-city-hallPro-democracy groups want community organizer as the next executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission.

MILWAUKEE – The signatories below, all members of pro-democracy rights organizations, support the selection of Paulina Gutierrez as the next executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission. We recognize our country's presidential election is less than 5 months away, and we need a leader who is ready to listen, recognize, and provide for the needs of voters in Milwaukee, and the employees they will soon oversee.

paulina-gutierrezGutierrez has prior experience that will be critical during such an important election year. She has knowledge of the election process, as well as knowledge of how to ensure a democratic process for voting in Milwaukee. In addition, Gutierrez’s background as a community organizer and her work on the Fire and Police Commission exhibit her leadership, attention to detail, and commitment to local government and the people of Wisconsin. Previously with the state Department of Correction, Gutierrez led the charge advising the state Legislature and Governor’s office on strategic planning regarding the criminal justice system and proposals.

Stability is key for such a crucial election cycle, and in order for democracy to work, we need all hands on deck. During this time when voting security and safety are paramount, swift confirmation for the executive director and deputy director roles is vital.

“Executive Director Gutierrez possesses the necessary qualities to effectively lead the Milwaukee Election Commission and will ensure that elections in Milwaukee are conducted efficiently with the highest level of integrity. The Milwaukee Election Commission requires strong leadership at the helm, and Executive Director Gutierrez, in tandem with the talented and experienced election commission staff, will deliver for the people of Milwaukee,” said Nick Ramos, executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign.

We applaud Paulina Gutierrez’s unanimous confirmation to the role of executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission and we recognize the need for a steward of electoral safety, security and democratic ethos.
