MILWAUKEE — Jonathan Brostoff last week won the straw poll at the first debate between candidates for Assembly District 19.
The candidate forum, held on May 1, was hosted by UW-Milwaukee College Democrats and took place on campus. Jonathan was joined by two other candidates for the seat, which represents the East Side, Downtown, the Third Ward, Bay View and parts of Riverwest.
“It was great to have a chance to speak about important issues like education, transit, economic development, and women’s health with neighbors in the district,” said Brostoff. “I thank the UWM College Democrats for providing the forum and for having the confidence in me to declare me the winner of the debate.”
Brostoff, a lifelong resident of Milwaukee’s East Side, is currently on leave of absence from his job as Senator Chris Larson’s District Director.
Previously, he held staff positions with other local, state and national elected officials; served on the state Board of the Wisconsin ACLU for several years; and worked with and volunteered in a number of non-profit social service organizations and homeless shelters.
Jonathan and Senator Larson also co-founded DemTEAM, whose mission is to train progressive, community-minded members in Milwaukee interested in running for elective office or helping progressives get elected.
“I think those in attendance saw that my grasp of the issues — together with my direct service in the community, multiple roles in government service, and help promoting and electing strong progressives — are the attributes the 19th District needs from their new representative,” said Brostoff.
