About Alder Carter

Sheri Carter is a life long Madisonian and an alumna of West High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Sheri was elected in 2015, making her one of the first African American woman elected to the Madison Common Council.

Over the past 15 years, Sheri has been actively involved in the Madison community. Prior to her election as Alder, Sheri served as the President of Arbor Hills Neighborhood Association for over 10 years, and initiated several community projects in Arbor Hills and worked closely with the Leopold Neighborhood Association.

In 2008 she launched the "See something, Say something, Make the Call" campaign in Arbor Hills.  She has worked closely with Penn Park Partners to increase summer programs in Penn Park. In addition, Sheri served as President of South Metropolitan Planning Council and became very aware of other neighborhood's projects and concerns. Sheri was part of the Nine Springs Health Assessment Committee working with the Public Health of Madison/Dane County staff and community residents.

Sheri believes the best part of living in District 14 is the diversity of the residents, the uniqueness of each neighborhood and being surrounded by nature; the Arboretum, the E-Way, and lake Monona.
