MILWAUKEE – Dozens of elected leaders from across Milwaukee County today announced their endorsement for Judge Rebecca Dallet in her campaign for Wisconsin Supreme Court.
“Our criminal and civil justice systems only work when we have judges who truly understand justice, like Judge Rebecca Dallet,” said State Senator LaTonya Johnson. “She is fair, tough, independent, and trustworthy, and she has earned my enthusiastic endorsement to make our courts work again.”
“If we want a strong judicial system, we need Judge Rebecca Dallet on the bench,” said Whitefish Bay Village President Julie Siegel. “She understands the hopes and dreams of our neighbors, and is ready to bring her tremendous experience in the courtroom to ensure fair and impartial application of the law. I support her campaign completely.”
“Between Judge Rebecca Dallet and her opponents, there is simply no comparison when it comes to experience in the courts,” said Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm. “Judge Dallet truly understands what it means to be just and fair, and her experience as a prosecutor and a judge, having tried and overseen thousands more cases than her opponents, prepare her for success as our next Supreme Court justice. I am proud to endorse her.”
