WEST ALLIS, WI — Angelito Tenorio announced today that he has earned the endorsement of 14 more local and state elected officials from Dane County in his campaign for State Treasurer, including six Dane County supervisors and three alders from the City of Fitchburg.
“I believe that Angelito will bring the dedication and energy we need in the State Treasurer’s office to truly advocate for the financial priorities that Wisconsinites deserve,” said Rep. Samba Baldeh. “He won’t bow to pressure from outside forces and I know he’ll work in partnership with Governor Evers to overcome the obstacles Wisconsin faces on our path to progress.”
“It’s so important that we elect Angelito Tenorio as our next State Treasurer because he will use the office to its full potential,” said Fitchburg Alder Gabriella Gerhardt. “Angelito will not only be a strong fiscal watchdog, he’ll also be a champion of our shared progressive values and a vocal advocate for taking action to address the existential threat of climate change. We can’t afford to elect someone who can’t or won’t use the bully pulpit that comes with the office to fight for Wisconsin’s future.”
“Angelito shares the values of hard-working Wisconsinites,” said Dane County Supervisor Alex Joers. “His commitment to fighting for economic security, financial accountability, and environmental sustainability will serve our state well. I am excited to support Angelito for Treasurer as a friend who knows his determination to do what is right and just for all of us.”
“I’m humbled and honored by the trust that this diverse and dynamic group of elected officials have placed in me with their endorsements today,” said Tenorio, a veteran who currently serves as a West Allis alder. “Our coalition continues to grow every single day because Wisconsin leaders have seen my dedication to serving our state and they believe in my vision to build a stronger, more prosperous, and more sustainable future for every Wisconsinite.”
The elected officials endorsing Angelito Tenorio today are:
State Representatives Samba Baldeh, Lisa Subeck, and Francesca Hong; Fitchburg Alders Joe Maldonado, Julia Arata-Fratta, and Gabriella Gerhardt; Dane County Supervisors Alex Joers, Heidi Wegleitner, Yogesh Chawla, Michele Doolan, Holly Hatcher, and Chuck Erickson; Former Dane County Supervisor Richard Kilmer, and Madison Board of Education Clerk Nicki Vander Meulen.
