What is your story? How did you end up in Milwaukee? Tom Long

I have lived in Wisconsin the majority of my life, growing up in Appleton and attending university in Madison. After my time at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I settled in Milwaukee for work.

What keeps you in Milwaukee/What do you like best about Milwaukee?

I love the vibe of Milwaukee. The city is the perfect blend of big city benefits and small town benefits. 

Favorite spot in the city?

I love the lakefront and Discovery World area.

Milwaukee festival you are eager to attend each year?

Not a festival person.

What drew you to Echelon?

I was looking to get involved in more volunteer work. This also seems like a great way to meet people in the city.

Share with us a memorable experience you have had thus far with the organization.

I'm looking forward to being part of an upcoming Echelon event and making an impact in our community.

What struggles do you see our city dealing with? What can our generation do to help?

I see Milwaukee struggling in two categories:

  1. Economic growth 
  2. Bridging the economic gaps between different socio-economic groups

I think Echelon can help with the latter.
