Madison – Governor Scott Walker signed Executive Order #241 today ordering the flags of the United States and State of Wisconsin be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect for Trooper Anthony J. Borostowski of the Wisconsin State Patrol, who tragically died in the line of duty after his patrol car struck a tree on Interstate 90/94.
Earlier today, Governor Walker released the following statement:
Our hearts are heavy today as we mourn the loss of Anthony Borostowski who passed away early this morning in the line of duty. Anthony was an outstanding trooper and staff sergeant in the Wisconsin National Guard. I had the honor of meeting him in 2015 when he received the Wisconsin State Patrol’s Lifesaving Award for saving a man’s life by performing CPR. Tonette and I send our prayers to Anthony’s family as they grieve the loss of their loved one. Anthony will never be forgotten.
