Why I’m Running

Montgomery for Board Trustee

  • Because I am passionate about the quality of life in the Brown Deer community – and I want to make sure residents know their elected officials and who to contact when they have a need


  • I want to engage residents in conversation and action that fosters greater economic development in the Brown Deer community


  • I want to encourage neighbors to “know their neighbor” through the Brown Deer Block Watch program to help reduce crime


  • I want to form local government partnerships to make sure Brown Deer residents are considered when decisions are made at the county and state level


  • I am running because I care about the same things all Brown Deer residents care about (safety, property values, quality schools, a thriving community for families to enjoy with affordable housing and property taxes to attract future generations).

There are Black women running for political office all over the United States, and we need to know who they are. It is abundantly clear that we need to start following the lead of Black women, because we show up and do what is important, even when we are being disenfranchised and sabotaged from doing the work. 2018 is especially important because midterm elections are coming up. We need all the information we can get.

About the Trustee Role

The Village Board of Trustees is an elected governmental body, made up of one elected Village President and six elected Village Trustees. Each member of the Board is elected to serve a three year term. Every year, two Trustee seats are up for re-election. Every three years the Village President seat is up for re-election. The Board is also responsible for appointing the Village Manager, who serves as the chief administrative officer in the Village and oversees the day-to-day operations.

The Village Board is responsible to the residents of the Village of Brown Deer for the provision of municipal services. To assist and provide recommendations to the Board, citizens are appointed to serve on various standing committees of the Board. Those residents interested in serving on one of the committees are invited to contact the Village President or Village Manager’s Office.
Regular meetings are held on the first and third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Earl McGovern Board Room (Room 100) at Village Hall. The meeting agendas and minutes are also posted on the website, or can be reviewed at Village Hall.
