Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Senator johnson winner. Thank you for your friendship Will Milwaukee. Agreed. You know seven weeks ago I was standing in a hotel ballroom kinda like this and maybe you were there for that speech or maybe I heard a snippet of it at television, our message then was simple. Um, it’s been my message throughout this campaign that we want a safer, stronger, more prosperous Milwaukee, isn’t it? Also said that this city is wonderful. It’s beautiful. It’s heartbreaking sometimes. And I said we have to have a big, bold vision. I said we have to defend each other. And now today tonight, this city for the first time in its 176 year history has elected its first black mayor. We did it. Yes. Yeah. Mmh. Now I’m here tonight with my wife Dominique and my kids and I couldn’t have done this without them. They gave me their support, their love and I hope they know that I will always support them and love them and everything they do. Uh these children, these children here, Oliver Madison and Bella, they are our reason for being. We want a loving, nurturing and stable home. This is why we work hard every day and we want our city to be as loving, nurturing and stable as well. That’s why I ran for mayor and now, tonight, we’ve taken a key step on the path to renewing our cities. We promise, we have a lot to do. We must confront our crisis of gun violence and dangerous streets. We need to restore our neighborhoods. We need to create jobs and grow our city and we also need to fix the broken relationship we have with the state government. This is what I talked about during the election campaign. This is what I will be working on at City Hall in the days, weeks and years to come. But but but let me take a moment here for gratitude. Of course, I am grateful to my family and Dominique. I love you. I love you with all my heart and thank you for all the support you have given me. I know I tried. Thank you for your support and thank you for your grace and your children. I know I haven’t lived as much as you would like and my work will take me further away than we would like. But know that I do this work, not just for us, but for every family, every family in Milwaukee, everyone. I am also eternally grateful to my campaign team and my team in the mayor’s office, as it was largely a team effort, maintaining a busy schedule with all the necessary preparation and support for offering great advice and options when we have tough decisions ahead of us, for making sure we stick with our strong values ​​and every decision we make for everyone who has honored me with your time and your sacrifice. I say thank you. I want, I want I also want to thank our volunteers. Those who gave time to put up signs to make phone calls that knocked on doors called a meeting. The Greeks gave you your hard-earned treasure. I say thank you. Thanks very much. I will never forget the collective effort it took to bring us to this moment here. At present. I would like to thank the men and women who paved the way for me to be victorious on this stage. Tonight I speak of the trailblazers, elected and unelected Milwaukee African American Community Trailblazers who have come the long way so that I can both run as well as when. To the right I stand mm hmm. And I know that I stand on the shoulders of giants in this community, people like Bill Phillips, people like Win more Isaac and Marcia Cobs. Mhm Mayor Marvin Pratt and so many others. More importantly, I want to thank you, I want to thank the voters of Milwaukee. It is because of you that after 176 years of history in this city, a black man can stand up and say that I was elected mayor because of you. I do. But I didn’t seek the mayoral job because I’m a black man or even to be the first elected black mayor. Let’s be realistic. The symbolism is not lost on me and it should not be lost on anyone in this room. This is an important moment in the history of our city. So I hope all the black and brown boys and girls who wake up tomorrow and get ready for school do. So knowing that what we’ve shown here today, that it doesn’t matter where you live or how much or how little your parents earn and it doesn’t matter what color your skin is, that in Milwaukee there’s a place for you, yeah, I’ve been, I’m someone who’s been through the toughest experiences of these heartbreaking neighborhoods in our city. Gun violence has affected our family as victims. I know what it’s like to be hungry and what it’s like to move around more times than you can count Coming from tough neighborhoods where half the black men spend time incarcerated by the time they reach my age 35 years old. I know what it’s like to escape these kinds of statistics, but I also know what it’s like to see friends and family members who succumb to these challenges and end up choosing the wrong path in the life. I’ve experienced that I know I know what it’s like growing up and living in a tough neighborhood constantly changing schools year after year to have people I care about. But who also get caught up in the web of crime and violence that afflicts far too many people in our city. It’s that prospect. It’s that lived experience that’s woven into my DNA and I carry that with me. So whether I meet school children, the men and women who sweep our streets, or corporate CEOs who come with me and my colleague is a service because I am a son of this town. I am a son of this town and now we have to continue our work. And so the next step is to listen. We know that security and prosperity will be our benchmarks. But we need all the ideas we can have to achieve our goals. No idea is too big. No idea is too small. I want to hear everyone. I want to hear from small business owners. I want to hear from unionized workers. I want to hear from teachers and nurses. I want to hear the night watchman in the early morning, the bakers, the city workers, the entrepreneurs, the executives, the lawyers, the doctors, those who serve the school canteens and those who drive the bus. Everyone because in this city we all have the right to stay and this countryside. My refrain has been that we will be safer. We will be stronger. We will create more families, support jobs and we will be the best city in America and I know I had the honor of being elected, your mayor. The work continues only because we have so much to do and we must do it together. The truth is that the changes we seek will not happen as quickly as we would like or as quickly as some might need. But they will come and we won’t rest until we build the city of our imagination. The city of our dreams, the city we all deserve. So tonight we celebrate and tomorrow we continue the hard work of the government. The hard work of transforming our city into a place where all of our residents can thrive, where businesses from around the world want to locate, and where every family can come together without fear of violence or crime marring our joy, right? not ? No, you know that. Although this work will take time. In two years. Milwaukee will be a stronger city than it is today, and we will do it with your help. Over the past 15 weeks I’ve traveled every corner of Milwaukee and met so many. I love you too, Mom, and I’ve met so many kind-hearted, hard-working, community-minded people. This experience reinforced what I already know about our neighbors that we all want. What’s best for our families and what’s best for Milwaukee. We can build on this collectively. We will make this city safer and wealthier. We can put Milwaukee on a trajectory so that our children and grandchildren are well again, enjoying a quality of life we ​​can be proud of. I want to tap into the excitement we feel here tonight and channel that energy. So let’s move on. Let’s build our economy. Let’s grow our city. Respect our neighbours. Let’s solve our challenges. When we do, we will create a safer environment for our families. More growth for our business means more family, it means supporting opportunities for our residents and real stability in our neighborhoods because a healthy city will be a safe city. So let’s do these things. Let’s do all these things and do them together. So thanks again to my lovely wife, Dominique to our kids, Oliver, Madison and Bella to my team and to each and every one of you, my mate from Milwaukee and thank you. Thanks very much. God bless you and God bless the city of Milwaukee. Let’s get to work. Yeah. Mm hm. Mmh. Thank you. Mm hm. Yeah,
