Asks Neighbors for their Vote on August 9
MILWAUKEE – Assembly Representative LaTonya Johnson, who currently represents the 17th Assembly District and is running to fill the vacant 6th Senate District seat made a surprise last minute endorsement of Edgar Lin, a candidate for Assembly Representative of the 16th District.
Lin is a political newcomer and challenging 24-year incumbent Leon Young for the seat.
“Milwaukee needs people like Edgar who have the courage to challenge the status quo on issues like crime, jobs, and public education. It’s time for a change. I trust Edgar Lin to fight for Milwaukee every day he is in office,” said Representative Johnson.
“Together, we have knocked on nearly 10,000 doors in neighborhoods like Lindsay Heights, Franklin Heights, Amani/Metcalfe Park, Midtown, Washington Park, Riverwest, Harambee, Brewers Hill, and Bronzeville,” said Lin. “We have talked with thousands of our neighbors who are tired of the status quo and want someone in Madison who will fight hard for Milwaukee.
“I appreciate the endorsement of Representative Johnson, along with all the other endorsements I’ve received, and I am humbled by the countless neighbors who have invited me into their homes and shared their personal stories and hopes for the future.
“To all the neighbors I have met and those I have not, I ask again for your vote on Tuesday,” concluded Lin.
