Announces endorsements from more than 65 sheriffs and district attorneys
RACINE, WI – Judge Lisa Neubauer, Chief Judge of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, announced today that she has been endorsed by more than 65 current and former sheriffs and district attorneys from across the state. She also has earned the support of more than 300 judges since she announced her campaign in mid-summer. Her entire list of endorsing judges can be found on her website.
“Our campaign has traveled across the state for six months working hard to earn every vote, and I’m honored to have bipartisan support from our law enforcement officials,” said Chief Judge Lisa Neubauer. “I am committed to a justice system that works for all of us and we must start with courts that are fair, impartial, and independent.”
“Judge Neubauer is the right choice for Wisconsin Supreme Court. She has shown that she has the independence and the commitment to public safety that we need on our state’s highest court. I support her today just as I did in her re-election for the Court of Appeals in 2014,” said Winnebago County Sheriff John Matz (R).
“Wisconsin needs a justice who will stand up for the rights of our citizens and the rule of law. Judge Neubauer will be that kind of justice. I am proud to support her candidacy for Supreme Court,” said Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney (D).
After being appointed to the Court of Appeals, Judge Neubauer was elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2014, and has served as Chief Judge since 2015. She had almost two decades of experience as a litigation attorney at Foley & Lardner before joining the appellate court and also served as a law clerk for Judge Barbara Crabb, then-Chief Judge of the United States District Court, Western District of Wisconsin. Judge Neubauer lives in Racine with her husband, Jeff, and they are the proud parents of three children.
