About Chevy Johnson
Thanks for visiting our website! We'll win this election because of committed supporters like you. We hope that you will explore ways that you can be a part of this campaign by volunteering, making a contribution, or hosting a meet and greet. Make sure to check out Chevy's bio below! Cavalier "Chevy" Johnson is running for Alderman because he believes in Milwaukee. Through his work, Chevy has been committed to serving Milwaukee's neighborhoods, residents, and it's future. Chevy’s commitment to his district and city began at an early age. At 14 years old, he was selected by the YMCA to participate in a pre-college program for low-income MPS students. That very same program, Sponsor-A-Scholar, solidified Chevy’s life commitment to community service and making Milwaukee better for future generations. Chevy attended UW-Madison and returned home to work with the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board (MAWIB). While there, served at-risk youth, youth entering the workforce for the first time, and adults retooling to enter the workforce for the last time. Chevy has also served on boards at the Milwaukee YMCA, ACLU, and Milwaukee Community Brainstorming. Most recently, Chevy served our community through the Mayor’s Office, where he worked diligently with community and faith leaders to find creative solutions to some of Milwaukee’s most pressing issues facing families from all walks of life. Service has been the hallmark of Chevy's life and that's why he's running for Alderman in Milwaukee's Second District. We hope to earn your support and we hope that you join us on our journey to serve.
