Appleton, WI – The Nelson for Wisconsin campaign today launched “Labor for Tom,” a coalition of labor advocates and unions who support Tom Nelson as the best candidate to defeat billionaire son-in-law Ron Johnson and fight for Wisconsin’s working class. The first endorsements to be announced are three local firefighter unions, the Green Bay Area Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 141, Appleton Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 257, and Grand Chute Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 3655.

Nelson said, “I’m so honored to have the endorsement of these firefighters who risk their lives heroically everyday for our communities. We need more public servants who actually come from a blue-collar upbringing and can be trusted to take on the corporate special interests that have long been undermining public services and hollowing out our cities and small towns alike.”

Green Bay Area Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 141: “Like many other members of the middle class, our wages and means of supporting our families have been drastically cut year after year. Now is the time to take a stand. The motivation, professionalism, honesty, compassion, and fiscal responsibility that Tom Nelson displays daily is exactly what we need, and that is why Green Bay Area Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 141 is honored and proud to endorse him.”

Appleton Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 257: “As firefighters, we support those who support us. Tom Nelson has a lengthy history of doing just that for all first responders. That’s why Appleton Fire Fighters Local 257 endorses Tom Nelson for U.S. Senate.”

Grand Chute Fire Fighters I.A.F.F. Local 3655: Tom Nelson has a long and extensive history of supporting the Town of Grand Chute and Union Firefighters. His commitment to working people has always made him someone that can be relied upon. Tom represents a compassionate and honest politician who understands the needs and wants of those who dedicate themselves to the protection of the citizens of Grand Chute and its surrounding communities. Grand Chute Fire Department Local 3655 is both honored and privileged to endorse Tom for U.S. Senate.
