Assembly District 17 – Chris Walton

Who I am

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Chris grew up having a deep passion and interest in politics. He became heavily involved in politics, working on campaigns for President Barack Obama and Milwaukee Alderwoman Chantia Lewis. He’s worked in roles for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, and the Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Chris received his bachelor’s degree at Mississippi State University in Political Science, History, and African American studies.

Why I am Running

I can speak for those that are underrepresented in our halls of power. In the Assembly, I will fight for resources for our community, more good-paying jobs, a strong education system, reforms to our criminal justice system, and access to quality, affordable health care for all.
