MADISON – The following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning with regards to the passing of former Democratic Party Chair William “Bill” Gerrard over the previous weekend:

“Gerrard’s organizational skills transformed the Democratic Party into a more professional organization and his fundraising prowess helped turn the party into a formidable political organization capable of competing at all levels of government.
“Bill was of a generation of Wisconsin Democrats who greatly influenced much of what we take for granted today in Wisconsin government and in the structure of the Democratic Party. He will be greatly missed.”
