Today, Democratic Congressional Candidate Cathy Myers announced the endorsement of twenty local elected leaders in her bid to take on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Myers has received the most endorsements in the two-way Democratic Primary in Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.

Myers’s endorsements include state senators, mayors, county board supervisors, city council members, and school board commissioners.

Anissa Welch, the mayor of Milton, WI, explained her support by saying, “Cathy is the type of person that I know I can count on to act when our local community needs support. As a mayor, that’s important to me, which is why Cathy has my full support.”

Charlene Staples, a Walworth County Supervisor, believes Cathy Myers is the best candidate to support the environment and to oppose the tar sands infrastructure projects in her district. “Cathy has set herself apart as an outspoken advocate on environmental issues, which is why she has earned my support and full endorsement. Not only is Cathy the best candidate on the environment, she is also the only candidate in the race that has won an election.”

Cathy Myers is a two-term Janesville School Board member that was elected in 2013 with over 4,000 votes and reelected in 2016 with over 10,000 votes. She is the only candidate vying to face Paul Ryan that has won an election.  Myers is a 23-year high school English teacher that is also the only elected local union officer in the race.

Below is the full endorsement list:

    Here’s the problem: Cathy Who? No name recognition to the general public. Need a candidate that everyone in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Madison, Eau Claire, the entire state instantly recognizes. Elections have little to do with politics in the real world these days. It’s all about name recognition…

  2. Jules Rules says:

    Randy Bryce has momentum, money and a good story. I personally didn’t even know someone else entered the race. He’s killing it right now.

  3. Cherry Miller says:

    Is she supported by sanders like Bryce is? I would much rather have someone sanders does not endorse. That person will be better for this country.
