“This city, for the first time in our 176-year history, has elected its first Black mayor. We did it,” Johnson said Tuesday.
Johnson, who at 35 is also the city’s first millennial mayor, defeated former Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan in the special election for a shortened two-year term. He took over as the city’s acting mayor last December, after the incumbent Tom Barrett stepped down to become the US ambassador to Luxembourg.
