MILWAUKEE – Marisabel Cabrera, Democratic candidate for the 9th Assembly district, today issued the following statement regarding the Shepherd Express endorsing her candidacy:

“Earning the endorsement of the Shepherd Express signals that people are ready for a new direction in the 9th district. This newspaper is known to many as the best alternative source of news and insight into Milwaukee. The people who I am running to represent want someone they can rely on. My hope is that everyone reading this issue comes to the same conclusion as the publication did: we deserve better.”

In its endorsement, the Shepherd Express stated, “[Cabrera] has a thorough understanding of the issues facing the community and would be a strong advocate for its residents. The near South Side needs and deserves a strong, smart and active leader as their state representative. We feel Cabrera is the best choice on Aug. 9 to take this district’s concerns seriously and champion its potential.”

It added, “We also believe that Cabrera would be far more proactive in the Assembly than the incumbent, state Rep. Josh Zepnick, who has delivered next to nothing for his constituents during his almost 14 years in office.”
