Bowen said that one of his reasons for seeking a seat in the Wisconsin State Assembly was the fact that in April 2014, the county's voters passed a referendum that cut the pay of the members of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors from $50,679/year to $25,000/year. Bowen said, "I honestly didn’t see this coming. This forces me to get another job because I can’t afford to serve my constituents like I did before."
Bowen's professional experience includes serving as county supervisor on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
