I am Erik Brooks, and I am proud to be your alderman.
It has been a pleasure serving the residents of the 4th District since first being elected in April of 2009.
At age 37, I like to think I bring some youthful enthusiasm to the job, as well as some fresh ideas and new perspectives. I also bring some varied professional experiences to the role.
After graduating from Marquette University in 1997, I spent the first 10 years of my professional life as a sports, business and news journalist before moving into my current role as a communications professional at MillerCoors in 2007.
I also bring a lifelong love of the South Shore to this position. I was born and raised on the south side of Milwaukee and am a proud graduate of the now-defunct St. Matthew’s on Milwaukee’s south side, St. Thomas More High School and Marquette University.
Of course, my family grounds me. I have been married for 13 years to my wonderful wife Sarah, and we have two beautiful children. Without their support, none of this would be possible.
We moved to South Milwaukee in 2002, and I look forward to many more years in this great community!
