Brostoff Thanks Senator Harkin for Service
Candidate for Assembly Highlights Lessons Learned While Serving as an Intern
MILWAUKEE – Jonathan Brostoff, candidate for Wisconsin’s 19th Assembly District, released a statement thanking Sen. Tom Harkin (D – Iowa) for his four decades of service in Congress and congratulating him on his upcoming retirement.
“I was lucky enough to earn a summer internship with Senator Harkin in Washington DC while attending UW-Milwaukee. During my time with Senator Harkin, I saw firsthand his hard work and dedication to his constituents. There was no better elected official to learn these important lessons from.
“Sen. Harkin has proudly served Iowa in Congress since 1975, and his commitment to important policy issues will be missed. As the author of the Americans with Disabilities Act, he has demonstrated true leadership in disability advocacy, and I will never forget the time we spent conversing in sign language during my internship. He was a proud progressive who stood by his principles, but also reached across the aisle in order to get important work done.
“I would like to congratulate Sen. Harkin on his upcoming retirement and thank him for proudly serving his home state. I hope that if I am elected, I will emulate his strong work ethic and his dedication to those served.”
Jonathan Brostoff is the District Director for Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee) and is a candidate for State Assembly in District 19. A longtime resident and community leader in the district, Brostoff is dedicated to bringing effective, progressive leadership to the state legislature. The general election is on November 4th.
