WEST ALLIS, WI – Jessica Katzenmeyer (D-West Allis) who is running for State Senate in Wisconsin’s 5th District is proud to have the support of the Wisconsin Teamsters Joint Council 39.
“It is an honor to be endorsed by my former union. It was through my union that I became an activist for workers’ rights and a dedication to making sure that our government is working to grow an economy that works for working families,” said Katzenmeyer.
With a proud union background, Jessica worked for UPS for over 12 years. She was an active member of Teamsters Local 344, serving three years as elected Secretary on their Political and Legislative Committee, five years on the UPS Safety Committee, and three years on the UPS Employee Relations Committee. The lessons learned from serving in these roles were invaluable, but none were as important as understanding that when people work together, it is possible to make the world a better place.
Wisconsin Teamsters Joint Council 39 joins a growing list of labor endorsements. Jessica also has the support of the Wisconsin Laborers’ District Council, AFSCME People, and the WI AFL-CIO. Jessica is looking forward to marching in the Laborfest parade with Teamsters Local 344 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The 5th State Senate district covers western parts of West Allis, Wauwatosa, Elm Grove, Brookfield, New Berlin, and small parts of Waukesha. To learn more about Jessica’s campaign, please visit www.jessicaforwi.com, The general election is on November 8th, 2022.
