Legislators say Palzewicz will be a strong ally to Wisconsin’s LGBT+ community.
Brookfield, WI – Tom Palzewicz, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Wisconsin’s 5th district, today announced the endorsement of Sen. Tim Carpenter, Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, and Rep. Mark Spreitzer, the three openly LGBT+ Democratic members of the Wisconsin state Legislature.
“Tom has demonstrated his strong support for the LGBT+ community ― and that he’ll work to defend and expand protections for all of us once he’s elected,” said Sen. Tim Carpenter. “I wholeheartedly endorse his campaign and look forward to working with him once elected.”
“From his participation in Milwaukee’s Pride Parade this month, to his hiring of an openly LGBT+ community leader to his staff, Tom has proven that he is a friend to LGBT+ Wisconsinites,” said Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa. “Tom is exactly the kind of leader we need in Congress and I can’t wait to get him elected.”
“Not only will Tom be a stellar advocate for the LGBT+ community, but he’s shown that he’ll be an advocate for every Wisconsinite,” said Rep. Mark Spreitzer. “Tom’s vision for bringing responsible leadership back to Washington, and ensuring it works for Wisconsin, are goals we can all get behind.”
“I’m honored to have the support of these legislators, and the courage and leadership they show as openly LGBT+ elected officials is truly inspiring,” said Palzewicz. “With their support, and the support of so many other leaders, I know that we can get to Washington and ensure our LGBT+ community is supported and protected by our federal government.”
