Katie Kegel Announces Judicial Endorsements
MILWAUKEE—The campaign for Katie Kegel for Judge in Milwaukee County Circuit Court, Branch 3, today announced a group of judges have endorsed her for election in the April election. These endorsements come as incumbent Clare Fiorenza announces her retirement rather than face Kegel.
“I am enthusiastically endorsing Katie Kegel to be the next judge in Branch 3, because we need fresh leadership, progressive values, and great wisdom on the bench,” said Appeals Court Judge Joe Donald. “She’s the right choice at the right moment. We need a clear vision for the future from our judges, not a continuation of the status quo.”
“I’m honored to have the support of these forward-looking judges, and to join them on the bench next summer,” said Kegel, who currently serves as an assistant state public defender. “The system cannot continue as it has for the last few decades, and I’m ready to apply the law fairly, ensuring we keep people safe, while breaking the cycle of discrimination and incarceration that has poisoned our community.”
The following judges endorsed Kegel today:
