Wisconsin Democrats Endorse Dr. Jill Underly for State Superintendent
Chair Ben Wikler issued this statement:
“In Wisconsin, we believe everyone — regardless of their race, class, or zip code — deserves a great public education. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction — a job previously held by Governor Evers — is a critical role that will help determine what kind of future we build for our children and our state, and Dr. Jill Underly is the right woman for the job.
Jill’s lifelong commitment to public education and lifting up every student has defined every step of her career, and shines through her record of service to students from pre-kindergarten through college, as a teacher, a principal, a mentor, and a district superintendent. Rather than expanding the diversion of public funds into private schools, she’s a champion of fully funding public schools to meet the needs of all public school students. Jill Underly is the best DPI candidate for Wisconsin, and we look forward to helping voters cast their ballots and elect her on April 6.
