2021 -2022 Board of Commissioners

Elmer Moore, Jr.

Board Chair – Elmer Moore Jr.

The role of the SDC Board of Commissioners is to provide guidance and leadership to the Social Development Commission. The agency’s board make-up is unique when compared to other social service agencies and nonprofit organizations. Our Board of Commissioners consists of representatives of three different sectors of the community. One-third of the members are appointed by public officials and a third are appointed by the private sector. The final third represent the voices of low-income residents of Milwaukee County. These six commissioners represent six districts of Milwaukee County. These Commissioners are elected to three-year terms by residents of those districts. Our elected Commissioners are responsible for providing feedback received from low-income residents in their district and bringing that input back to the Board.

Representation of the county’s low-income residents is extremely beneficial to SDC’s customers. Elected Commissioners not only share concerns at the Board level, but also provide the ability to share SDC and other resources with members of their districts. Representation of our low-income residents enhances SDC’s credibility with legislators that are creating, reviewing and passing legislation that affect those living in poverty. District Commissioners are also able to raise matters on behalf of their district that the full Board may not be aware of.

The Social Development Commission is fortunate to have a dynamic and diverse Board committed to excellence. Each member brings unique talents, skills, education and experiences that contributes to the strength of the Social Development Commission.

The public is encouraged to find out what district they reside in and who their Commissioner is. Elected Commissioners have the district they represent in the information shown below their picture.

Become a Commissioner and make an impact on poverty in Milwaukee County.

Our elected commissioners operate like any other elected official. They are community liaisons who advocate for people living in their districts. For example, if people feel strongly about policy affecting the quality of life, it is communicated to the Social Development Commission through an elected commissioner. Likewise, an elected commissioner is charged with promoting the Social Development Commission’s messages and resources in the community. Our elected commissioners serve three-year terms.
