Milton, Wisconsin- Republican Candidate for the 43rd Assembly Seat, Gabriel Szerlong made this statement honoring Memorial Day:
“James A. Garfield was correct when he stated, “for love of country they accepted death.” I am truly grateful for the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. Without their fortitude, our Nation would be at risk of collapsing, or in ruin already. I am honored to have the opportunity to speak to their heroism, and reflect upon the devotion of the many men and women who gave their lives so that we might continue to enjoy the freedoms bestowed upon us. We must never forget to honor their families, as well. This Memorial Day, let us take time to show our appreciation for the service and sacrifice of America’s heroes.”
Gabriel Szerlong is the nephew of service members Richard Szerlong, Ray Szerlong, George Szerlong, and Charles Parsons, as well as his grandfather James Maloney.
The 43rd Assembly District contains portions of Rock, Walworth, Dane and Jefferson counties including Whitewater, Milton, Edgerton, Footville, part of Oregon and surrounding towns.
