InfoAlderman Bohl is now one of the senior members on a young council that has seen substantial change over the past four years.

Alderman Bohl, 35, is a native of Milwaukee's northwest side. He graduated from Milwaukee's Madison High School in 1989, before earning Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Marquette University in 1993 and 1996.

Alderman Bohl is the Vice Chair of the Licenses Committee, and member of the Judiciary and Legislation Committee. He is the past chair of the Utilities and Licenses Committee, which was renamed the Licenses Committee. He also chaired the City's Anti-Truancy and Taxicab Improvement Task Forces.

Alderman Bohl has a special affinity for children, and has served as a confirmation instructor, Sunday school teacher and teen mentor.

Alderman Bohl has been consistently acknowledged for his efforts to lead the Council as a budget hawk and taxpayer advocate. The Shepherd Express weekly newspaper has recognized him as the Council's "Budget Cutting Champion". Over the course of his seven years on the Council, Alderman Bohl has sponsored legislation to combat chronic truancy, prevent the mushrooming of payday loan outlets, and require greater accountability in the operation of problem businesses. Alderman Bohl has also championed quality of life initiatives such as the creation of several new neighborhood associations in his district, and has sponsored "get tough" ordinances for garbage cart, snow and weed violators, and chronic nuisance properties needing inordinate police attention.
