Board District #7 Member Bio
Claire Zautke is honored to have been elected as the Milwaukee Board of School Directors' representative for District 7 in April 2013. Claire brings several years of experience in issue- and community-advocacy to this position, in addition to two years' ongoing experience in the administration of local government, working in the office of the County Executive. Claire has worked as a field director, volunteer coordinator, and project consultant for community and faith-based organizations in Milwaukee. She has also worked as an afterschool program instructor for a Milwaukee Public Schools recreational program within District 7.
Born and raised in the community she now represents, as the daughter of a County employee and City of Milwaukee Fireman, Claire set the goal of a career in public service at an early age.
Claire attended the Milwaukee French Immersion School and Samuel Morse School before going on to graduate magna cum laude from Carthage College with a Bachelor's Degree in political science and a minor in French.
Claire believes that attending Milwaukee Public Schools provided her with opportunities that no other schools could and will work hard to ensure that those opportunities always exist for Milwaukee's children.
Term expires: April 2017
