WISCONSIN, OCTOBER — Ed Fallone, candidate for Wisconsin State Supreme Court, today announced the endorsement of elected officials and community leaders across Wisconsin.

“I am proud to endorse Ed Fallone for Wisconsin Supreme Court. I firmly believe that our highest court will thrive with Ed’s voice bringing fairness, equality, and diversity to the bench. Along with over two decades of educating our state’s judges, prosecutors, and trial attorneys, Ed has extensive knowledge of our constitution and I know he will uphold it in our court of law. Ed Fallone has spent a lifetime fighting for justice, and he will continue to do so as a Justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court,” said John Chisholm, Milwaukee County District Attorney.

Judge Joe Donald of the District I Court of Appeals said, “Ed Fallone will be an excellent Justice on our State Supreme Court. What impresses me most is his quality of character, his courtesy, concern and respect for others, as well as his intellect and scholarship. As a constitutional scholar he has taught hundreds of judges and attorneys. Much like Justice Abrahamson, he has been a leader in the community and has continued to use his voice to fight for judicial independence and citizens’ rights. As the first Latino Justice in the history of this state, Ed will continue the fight against the abuses of power to benefit our state for generations to come.”

“Voces de la Frontera has endorsed Ed Fallone, a Marquette University constitutional law professor, for the Wisconsin Supreme Court in the February 18th primary election. Mr. Fallone who served on the Voces de la Frontera 501(c)(4) board for five years is a strong advocate for immigrants. He knows our community and is committed to ensuring that all people are treated equally with dignity and respect. Ed hasn’t just talked the talk. He walks the walk. If elected, he would be the first Latino elected to the Court. We need Ed and his values on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.”

“I am proud to receive the support of the workers, families, and young people who are the members of Voces de la Frontera,” responded Fallone. “The focus of the Voces organization-support for public education, support for jobs that are safe and pay a living wage, and support for immigrant civil rights-are the same causes that I have fought for my entire career. Quiero dar las gracias por el apoyo de Voces de la Frontera.”

“A clear, trusted interpretation of the constitution is best applied by one with perspective and fairness. Ed Fallone has the background, experience and goal oriented drive that Wisconsin’s highest court deserves. I’m proud to endorse Ed Fallone for Supreme Court,” stated Alderman Aaron Perry, City of Waukesha District 12.
