Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Raquel Rutledge


is a public service investigat­ive reporter who has received the nation’s highest honors in journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting. Her investigat­ions have not only informed the public but also led to reforms — saving taxpayers millions of dollars by ending rampant fraud in state child care funding; forcing the U.S. State Department and TripAdviso­r to acknowledg­e widespread reports of unsafe alcohol and assaults at high-end resorts in Mexico; ending unsafe practices that allowed deadly contaminat­ion of antiseptic wipes to be used in hospitals; and more. Born in Milwaukee, she is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
