Meet the Social Development Commission (SDC)’s District 4 Commissioner Alfred Komolafe:
How long have you been an SDC Commissioner?
I have been SDC District 4 Commissioner since August 26, 2021.
What do you do as an SDC Commissioner?
As SDC Commissioner, I represent 4th district in the Commission by influencing policies and programs that impact my constituency and the Milwaukee County residents. I am currently the Chairman of Human Resources Committee. I also attend monthly board meetings and committee meetings as assigned.
What motivates you as an SDC Commissioner?
My motivation was drawn from my desire to always involve in the development and advocacy of the community I live.
Describe a time when you felt like your work at SDC made a difference in someone’s life.
Before I moved to Milwaukee, I served under Gov. Pat Quinn as a Senior Public Service Administrator for couple of years. In this role, I helped to secure long term employment opportunities for people working in qualified nonprofit agencies. I also supervised State agencies procurement of products and services produced and provided by persons with significant disabilities.
