JOSÉ REA ANNOUNCES RUN FOR DANE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DISTRICT 5

MADISON WEST HIGH ALUM & CURRENT VICE CHAIR OF DANE COUNTY’S EOC LOOKS TO BRING A PROGRESSIVE AND DIVERSE PERSPECTIVE TO THE COUNTY BOARD

MADISON, WI —- Life long Dane County resident, José Rea, has announced their candidacy for the April 2020 election for Dane County Board of Supervisors District 5.

Growing up on the South Side of Madison and attending Madison Public Schools, José understands the very serious issues Dane County residents are facing. He was raised in a low income household with two very hard working parents that supported his desire to get involved from a young age. Attending People Program and as an alumni of UW-Madison’s Information Technology Academy, gave him the foundation he needed to push his passion further. In 2016 José ran for Alder of Madison’s South Side District 14. Although their race was unsuccessful he has not allowed that setback to discourage him from staying involved in community organizing and protests. This led him to be nominated and appointed to the Dane County Equal Opportunities Commission where they now serve as the Vice Chair.

José is energized more than ever to tackle the issues faced by students and residents living in District 5. This race is historic in that Dane County has yet to elect not only a Latino, but an openly LGBT+ identified Latino. José has already received the endorsements of Madison Metropolitan School District Board of Education President Gloria Reyes, MMSD Board of Education member Ananda Mirilli, Dane County District 4 Supervisor Richard Kilmer, and Dane County Board District 2 Supervisor Heidi Wegleitner.

The campaign looks to focus on the needs of all residents living in District 5 students and non students alike. José looks forward to having serious discussions with neighbors and community leaders on affordable housing, public safety, climate change, equity and inclusion, homelessness, and the racial disparities that effect everyone living in Dane County.
