MILWAUKEE – Jonathan Brostoff, candidate for the 19th Assembly District, released the following statement, emphasizing his pledge to be a full-time representative if elected.

“Our community is facing tough challenges right now and deserves a legislator who will be completely dedicated to addressing the needs of our district,” said Brostoff. “Neighbors can count on me to work hard, full-time, every single day to address challenges facing our community.”

Brostoff took a leave of absence as District Director for Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson for this race, to give his undivided attention to listening to the district’s concerns. Further, he has publicly committed to be a full-time representative if elected.

None of the other candidates in the race has publicly stated a commitment to work full-time for the district, or to give up their other public offices or law practices.

“Our community’s challenges are not part-time; nor should be its representative,” Brostoff said.

Brostoff has gained momentum in recent weeks, including many new endorsements and the announced support of Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader Sandy Pasch.

“Neighbors across the district tell me that they like that our positive campaign is the hardest working of any in the race,” Brostoff said. “They want a fresh, effective leader who will reinvest in public education, attract family-supporting jobs, and expand public transit. If given the opportunity to represent the 19th District, I commit myself to a complete focus, full-time, on creating a new progressive era in Wisconsin.”

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.
