State Representative Mandela Barnes Endorses Jonathan Brostoff
Brostoff campaign continues to earn support from Milwaukee’s state delegation
MILWAUKEE – Jonathan Brostoff, candidate for the 19th Assembly District, announced today the endorsement of State Representative Mandela Barnes.
“I’ve known Jonathan for many years, and I know his fresh, effective leadership is needed in Madison,” said Barnes. “Our city faces many challenges and we need to elect an energetic leader who is fully committed to addressing our community’s needs.”
Barnes, who was elected to the Assembly in 2012, is a graduate of DemTEAM, an organization that Brostoff co-founded with Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson to train progressive members of the community to run for office.
“We need to continue the new wave of progressive leadership in Wisconsin, and Jonathan has been instrumental in finding and training strong progressive voices in Milwaukee,” said Barnes. “Jonathan is a problem solver and consensus builder, and his leadership in the Assembly will be vital in helping Democrats win back the state.”
Barnes joins the growing list of endorsements for the Brostoff campaign, which has seen growing momentum in recent weeks after earning support from Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader Sandy Pasch. The campaign has the support of more state legislators than any in the race.
“It is a true honor to receive the support from Rep. Barnes,” said Brostoff. “If elected, I hope to work closely with him to continue to attract family-supporting jobs to our city.”
Jonathan Brostoff is the District Director for Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee) and is currently on a leave of absence to run 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 election is on August 12th.
