Milwaukee—Gwen Connolly today announced the endorsement of dozens of community leaders in her race for Milwaukee County Circuit Court Branch 44, further demonstrating a broad base of support across the entire county. Connolly has previously announced the endorsement of a majority of Mayors and Village Presidents in Milwaukee County, as well as hundreds of judges and attorneys, including many leaders working to serve the poor.

“Judges need to understand the law, apply the Constitution, treat all parties fairly, and demonstrate wisdom,” said Alexandra Ramsey, a principal at Engberg Anderson Architects who’s been involved in some of the community’s highest-profile projects. “Gwen has demonstrated in her career and in her campaign that she will be a truly independent judge that every citizen can count on, and she’s earned my endorsement.”
