EAU CLAIRE – Rep. Dana Wachs today endorsed Mandela Barnes for Lieutenant Governor, saying that Wisconsin voters deserve a leader with experience:
“Experience matters, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse Mandela Barnes for Lieutenant Governor. We’ve got to protect access to health care for women, children, and individuals with pre-existing conditions. We need to fix our schools, support our teachers, and make sure every child has a chance to succeed.”
“I believe Mandela Barnes is the best candidate to make change a reality in Wisconsin. Mandela and I served together in the legislature for four years. In a world where self-interested politicians say one thing and do another, we need a leader whose word means something. Mandela is that leader. He will be the lieutenant governor Wisconsin needs to right the wrongs of eight years of the Walker Administration,” said Rep. Wachs.
“Dana and I came into the Assembly at the same time back in early 2013, and in our two terms serving alongside one another, we were fortunate enough to work together on a number of important issues. Issues like health care, public education, and the environment, just to name a few. He brought a strong voice for progressive values to the governor’s race this year, and I’m honored to have his support in my race for lieutenant governor. I look forward to continuing the work that Dana and I started together as a part of the new Democratic administration,” said Barnes.
Mandela Barnes is a former two-term state representative, community organizer, and policy professional from Milwaukee. He is currently seeking the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor on August 14th. For more on Mandela, visit www.mandelabarnes.com.
