Wisconsin’s statewide Association of Letter Carriers has endorsed Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg for Wisconsin Supreme Court. The Association’s largest local, Pioneer Branch 2, added its endorsement as well.

“We were impressed by Judge Kloppenburg’s persuasive dialogue about the importance of the Court in Wisconsin and her qualifications to provide an impartial voice to that august body,” said Scott Van Derven, president of the Wisconsin State Association of Letter Carriers.

“Judge Kloppenburg has earned our support with her qualifications, independence, integrity and her approach to his campaign,” said Steve Erceg, president of the Pioneer Branch 2. “She is the only candidate with a statewide focus. She is reaching out all across Wisconsin and building the strong, grassroots organization that will win this race.”

The Wisconsin State Association is part of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) and is the sole representative of city delivery letter carriers employed by the U.S. Postal Service. The NALC was founded in Milwaukee in 1889 and Pioneer Branch 2 is the founding branch of the National Union. Statewide, the Wisconsin State Association represents about 5000 active and retired letter carriers.
