MILWAUKEE – Rebecca Kiefer, candidate for Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge, Branch 29, announced she has received the endorsements of the Shepherd Express , Wisconsin Muslim Civic Alliance, Fair Wisconsin, Wisconsin Justice Initiative Action, Grassroots North Shore, and Grassroots South Shore.
These new endorsers join the hundreds of community leaders, judges, attorneys, commissioners, and elected officials endorsing Rebecca Kiefer for Judge, in addition to 14 local organizations — which brings the number of organizations rallying behind ‘Kiefer for Judge’ to 20.
“Beyond her position as an Assistant District Attorney, Rebecca has been a leader with the Association for Women Lawyers and served on various Wisconsin State Bar committees,” said the Shepherd Express editorial board. “We believe she would be a very good addition to the Milwaukee County Circuit Court.”
“We must support those candidates with a history of good stewardship, trustworthiness, and competence in leadership,” said Will Perry, president of the WMCA. “We support candidates who support our community, who create policies that value diversity and social progress, and especially those who show up for us between elections.”
“The outpouring of support I’ve received heading into the final week of this campaign really exemplifies the momentum we have,” said Kiefer. “I am honored to have earned the support of these pillar organizations in our community.”
The general election is Tuesday, April 7. Rebecca Kiefer is the only woman candidate running in a contested election for the Milwaukee County Circuit Court, and received more ‘qualified’ votes than her opponent in a recent Milwaukee Bar Association survey.
