Just in the last few years alone, we have seen tremendous change in Southeastern Wisconsin, particularly in Metro-Milwaukee. Our neighborhoods are evolving at a rapid pace, and we want to keep growing and supporting the local business owners that make our City unique. It seems that lately, we have seen policies and outside business interests that are at odds with our mission.
Local First Milwaukee believes that a strong Southeastern Wisconsin economy is one that is driven by locally owned, independent businesses. Furthermore, we believe that these businesses are the cornerstone of our culture, economy, and character. Local First Milwaukee is the voice and advocate for local businesses – ultimately shaping the community we want. We strive to connect independent business owners with each other so that we can all work together to create more jobs, and create the thriving, unique metropolis that we know Milwaukee can be.
