Governor Walker Orders Flags to Half-Staff as a Mark of Respect for Fire Lt. Kristin Ciganek-Schroeder
Order effective Wednesday, December 13
MADISON –Governor Scott Walker signed Executive Order #267 today ordering the flags of the United States and State of Wisconsin be flown at half-staff throughout Milwaukee County as a mark of respect for Fire Lt. Kristin Ciganek-Schroeder of the Milwaukee Fire Department, who tragically passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. This order is effective at sunrise on Wednesday, December 13, 2017, and ends on sunset on that date.
“Fire Lt. Kristin Ciganek-Schroeder’s distinguished fourteen-year career with the Milwaukee Fire Department illustrates her dedication to serving her community,” said Governor Walker. “Even after retiring from the department for health reasons, her determination led to a federal grant providing cancer and wellness screenings for Milwaukee firefighters, leaving a legacy of potentially lifesaving reform. Tonette and I send our prayers to Kristin’s family as they mourn their loss.”
A copy of Executive Order #267 is attached.
