KENOSHA – Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Louis J. Butler proudly endorsed Angela Cunningham for Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Branch 6.
Louis J. Butler stated, “Angela has the right experience and values to make a difference on the Kenosha County bench. Kenosha needs a diverse set of perspectives on the bench, and her background in social work, as a community leader, as a single mother, as a defense attorney, prosecutor, and guardian ad litem, and as a seeker of justice for all, make her the perfect choice to be Kenosha’s next judge. She’s earned my enthusiastic endorsement, and I intend to help her win this election.” Justice Butler joins a deep list of endorsers including Representative Tod Ohnstad, Judge Maxine White, and Tim Mahone.
Butler secured a tremendous legacy as Wisconsin’s first Black Supreme Court Justice. If elected, Cunningham will make history as the first Black judge in Kenosha County.
“I have worked on all sides of the law, I’ve lived through crucial experiences and made the hard decisions which prepare me to become a Judge. We can be smart on crime and deliver an inclusive, empowering vision for justice,” Cunningham commented on her diverse array of endorsements and supporters.
Angela has been involved in the Kenosha community for years as a grassroots organizer, a nonprofit board member, and a tutor for elementary students. She has a history of community service and professional experience to match it. Angela wants to use her legal experience to continue serving her community as a judge.
Primary voting takes place on February 16, 2021, with ballots cast on April 6th for the general election.
