Alciro (Pronounced AL-KY-ROH) Deacon is a 33-year-old Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since the Age of 22, he has been a committed husband to his wonderful wife of 11 years. He is a proud father of four beautiful children and is humbled to have been recognized as Father of the Year by the Milwaukee Black Chamber of Commerce in 2016. A native Milwaukeean, Alciro was born in District 6, raised in an impoverished area of District 6, Attended K4-5th Grade at Siefert Elementary School (District 6), attended Central United Methodist Church (District 6) from birth until the age of 18, worked one of his first jobs at the Bradley Center (District 6), and looks to be the first Black Republican, as well as one of the youngest ever to represent District 6 in Wisconsin’s 172 year history! Alciro has served on and advised numerous community committees and councils. Early in his career, he worked as a Lead Fatherhood Advocate where he trained staff and taught Fatherhood, Anger Management, Healthy Relationships, Job Placement, etc. to men and women in the community, jail, and prison systems. He then worked and organized with Milwaukee Public Schools to troubleshoot student and family issues by working with the school principals, social workers, students, teachers, parents, and staff appointed by one of the Regional Superintendents at the time. After that, Alciro brought his talents to the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board. As a Reentry Coordinator, he developed one of the first Jail based American Job Centers in the Nation at the Milwaukee County House of Correction (Now called The Empowerment Center). The Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board then utilized his talents further and appointed him to be a Workforce Specialist in order to bridge the divide between the supply and demand sides of Milwaukee County’s economy. Alciro currently serves as a Program and Policy Analyst- Advanced/Contract Administrator for the State of Wisconsin conjointly overseeing both a multimillion-dollar budget and contracts for a plethora of nonprofit agencies. Alciro knows that for Milwaukee to truly thrive, it is going to take bold leadership in the face of adversity and someone who will bring SOLUTIONS and not just ideas. As of today, there are no Black men in the State Senate, and furthermore, there are no Black Republicans working in this legislature! This is what Alciro calls BOLD leadership. Ready, able and willing to get things done. As a big picture thinker, Alciro looks to not only address issues of today, but proposes innovative solutions to issues that will shift this generation and generations to come—to health, prosperity, safety and more. It is with humility, love, professionalism, commitment to service, and boldness when necessary that Alciro intends to bridge any divide that separates Milwaukeeans from obtaining greatness. It is time to get things done TOGETHER and BRIDGE THE DIVIDE! To learn more visit deaconforsenate.com.
