Milwaukee,  WI--The Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals is proud to announce the following endorsements for the 2020 Spring Primary Election.

Milwaukee County Executive:  Chris Larson and Theo Lipscomb

Chris Larson has demonstrated that he believes in nurses’ rights, workers’ rights, and that healthcare is a human right. He has put himself out there to do what is right and offers a record and vision that will move us in the right direction. Theo Lipscomb has enmeshed himself in service to the County for years. He has been a champion for our members who needed not just an ally, but a leader in the wake of Act 10 at the County level. The people of Milwaukee County are fortunate to have either candidate in the Executive’s office.

Ed Fallone is a recognized constitutional law expert with a record of serving the underserved, which is a background deeply needed on the Court. Jill Karofsky is an experienced and well-respected judge whom we would be excited to see continue to defend our values on the State Supreme Court.
