Jonathan Brostoff announces candidacy for Wisconsin State Assembly
New Leadership for a New Milwaukee
Milwaukee- Jonathan Brostoff announced his candidacy Wednesday for the 19th Assembly District, which includes the East Side, Bay View, the Brady Street neighborhood, the Historic Third Ward, and parts of Riverwest.
Jonathan has worked for Milwaukee’s residents throughout his life, in both community and government service.
“My grassroots campaign is focused on being a voice for Milwaukee at the state level, and standing up against the state policies that continue to hold Milwaukee back – extreme cuts to our public schools, lack of investment in Milwaukee’s neighborhoods and businesses, and a divisive agenda that rewards political special interests over problem-solving and compromise.
“District residents tell me they’re looking for someone who will work together to find solutions to our greatest challenges, and I’m ready to be that representative,” Brostoff said.
Community leaders are supporting Jonathan’s vision for the 19th Assembly District. Senator Nikiya Harris, Representative Fred Kessler, Representative Daniel Riemer, Milwaukee County Supervisor John Weishan, Jr., former Reps. Sheldon Wasserman and Barbara Notestein, community leaders Bonnie Joseph and Paul Schmitz, business leader Patti Keating-Kahn, and NEWaukee founder Ian Abston have all endorsed Jonathan’s candidacy.
Brostoff has a strong track record of working to elect progressive champions throughout Milwaukee County, including Sen. Chris Larson, Rep. Sandy Pasch, Rep. Daniel Riemer, and Rep. Mandela Barnes. He also has served in government as District Director for Sen. Larson and Legislative Aide to County Supervisor Jason Haas, and has worked for and volunteered at a number of community service organizations.
A Milwaukee native, Jonathan lives on the city’s East Side with his wife, Diana.
