Marina Dimitrijevic, Chairwoman of the Milwaukee County Board and Democratic Candidate for the Wisconsin State Assembly, District 19 has received the endorsement of Wisconsin Progress.

“Marina has delivered results on progressive values like equality, education, and environmental protection for over a decade. She is the clear choice to represent Milwaukee in the State Legislature and we know she will continue to be an effective, progressive leader,” said Scott Spector, Executive Director of Wisconsin Progress.

Founded in 2009, Wisconsin Progress is a state-based candidate recruitment and training program which has been successful in building a progressive network of elected leaders.

“The endorsement of Wisconsin Progress continues our campaign’s growing momentum of support. Our city and state are facing significant challenges, results matter and my elected experience makes me ready to lead on day one. Building a strong, statewide network of progressives is the way we win our state back and I am proud to be part of the team.” said Marina Dimitrijevic.

Marina Dimitrijevic’s campaign for the State Assembly has broad community support. She presently serves as Chairwoman of the County Board of Supervisors where she has been elected to represent Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood, located in Assembly District 19, for the past 10 years. This experience makes Marina the only candidate with a proven record of results, which is why a vast majority of Milwaukee’s organized labor and leaders such as Mayor Tom Barrett and Congresswoman Gwen Moore have all endorsed her candidacy.

Assembly District 19 includes Milwaukee’s Bay View, East Side, Downtown, Riverwest and Third Ward neighborhoods. The Democratic Primary Election is August 12th, 2014.
