Milwaukee County voters could see another close election later this year as candidates vie to become the next district attorney. Current D.A. John Chisholm announced last Friday that he's not running for reelection.

For an early voter guide to the race for D.A., we turn to Janine Geske. She's a former defense attorney, circuit judge, interim County Executive, and State Supreme Court justice, and is still a law professor at Marquette University. Geske told WUWM's Chuck Quirmbach why the contest for D.A. is so important.

Leading up to the 2024 elections, WUWM wants to know what’s most important to you so that we can tailor our coverage around it.
