MADISON – Today, the Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin announced their endorsement of Representative Melissa Sargent in her candidacy for Wisconsin’s 16th State Senate District.
In her seven years serving in the State Assembly and time on the Dane County Board before that, Representative Melissa Sargent has been a vocal supporter for first responders, union rights, community safety, and investing in local communities. Melissa has worked to ensure that all employees have a seat at the table in decision making, including for fair wages and hours, workplace safety, and more. As the members of the Professional Fire Fighters are on the frontlines risking their lives for our state, it is imperative that our voices are heard and represented. Melissa has fought ardently for this right, and as such we are proud to support her candidacy.
“State Representative Melissa Sargent continues to support first responders and is the right choice to represent the 16th Senate District. The Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin have seen firsthand the challenges that the working people of our state face, and as first responders on the frontlines, we strongly endorse Melissa Sargent due to her proven track record of working on behalf of the people of Wisconsin. PFFW is honored to endorse Melissa and looks forward to her leadership and work in the Wisconsin State Senate.”
“I am so thankful for the support of the brave women and men who work to protect our communities and keep us all safe,” said Representative Melissa Sargent. “In the State Legislature, it is vital that we have leaders who value first responders’ work and service to our state. I am proud to support first responders and the working people of our state and will continue to advocate for them once elected to the State Senate.”
