Cavalier "Chevy" Johnson sought the opportunity to serve as Alderman because he believes in Milwaukee. Through his work, Chevy has been committed to serving Milwaukee's neighborhoods, residents, and it's future. Chevy’s commitment to his district and city began at an early age.
At 14 years old, he was selected by the YMCA to participate in a pre-college program for low-income MPS students. That very same program, Sponsor-A-Scholar, solidified Chevy’s life commitment to community service and making Milwaukee better for future generations. Chevy attended UW-Madison and returned home to work with the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board (MAWIB). While there, Chevy served at-risk youth, youth entering the workforce for the first time, and adults retooling to enter the workforce for the last time. Chevy has also served on boards at the Milwaukee YMCA, ACLU, and Milwaukee Community Brainstorming.
Before serving as Second District Alderman, Chevy served our community as a Community Outreach Liaison for City government where he worked diligently with community and faith leaders to find creative solutions to some of Milwaukee’s most pressing issues facing families from all walks of life.
Service has been the hallmark of Chevy's life and that's why he's proud to serve as Alderman in Milwaukee's Second District where he will focus issues like public safety, investing in our infrastructure, and economic development.
Chevy is a graduate of MPS Bay View High School and UW-Madison. Chevy is engaged to Dominique and their young son is named Oliver.
