Public Relations Supervisor
Milwaukee City Clerk & Common Council
A member of the Milwaukee Youth Council Executive Committee will represent the body on an upcoming episode of _Our Issues Milwaukee_, due to air this SATURDAY, JUNE 6TH.
Council Member KALAN R. HAYWOOD, II was invited to participate in the program as a representative of the Youth Council and the young people of the City of Milwaukee. In the interview, which has already been recorded, he takes the opportunity to highlight the educational opportunities afforded to members of the Youth Council and to promote
the ongoing Milwaukee Peace Project.
“In the media especially, the youth of Milwaukee are often portrayed in a very negative light,” Mr. Haywood said. “I take it as a personal charge to shine a light on the positive things that young people are a part of.”
_Our Issues Milwaukee_ is a locally-produced program that delves into issues facing Milwaukee’s diverse population. Host Andrea Williams invites guests from throughout the city to provide an in-depth look at
various topics of local interest. While many of the city’s elected officials have been guests, Mr. Haywood is the first member of the Youth Council to appear on the program.
The episode is slated to air SATURDAY, JUNE 6TH AT 6:30 A.M. on MY 24. By coincidence, MONDAY, JUNE 8TH will mark the 10th anniversary of the Youth Council’s first meeting on June 8, 2005.
