Roxanne Volkmann - 2023 Aldermanic Candidate


Roxanne Volkmann says she’s running to bring “working mom sensibility” to the City Council, according to a Twitter thread she posted announcing her candidacy. Volkmann’s campaign centers around stemming violent crime, increasing mental health resources and pushing back against what she portrays as “out of control” property taxes.

In the thread, she mentioned her son has been a crime victim himself, saying “My son was robbed at gunpoint over the summer. I’ve experienced the phone call that many parents dread and I know it could have been much worse. I will work hard to make it much better.” Volkmann works for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
