MADISON–The Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) announced today its endorsement of Steve Doyle in his campaign to represent the 94th State Assembly District. The WPPA’s board of directors, which is comprised of active law enforcement officers from all across the state, overwhelmingly chose to support Doyle after closely reviewing his responses to their candidate questionnaire, which the group sent to both candidates. The race to fill the legislative seat vacated by Mike Huebsch will be decided in a special election held on May 3rd.
“Steve Doyle understands and appreciates the vital role that law enforcement plays in promoting the outstanding quality of life in Wisconsin,” said WPPA Executive Director, Jim Palmer. “His responses to the WPPA’s questionnaire, considered along with his significant county board experience, made it very clear that Steve is the candidate best-suited to address the fiscal challenges confronting this state while protecting the services that the citizens hold most dear.”
With over 11,000 members from nearly 400 local association affiliates, the WPPA is the state’s largest law enforcement group. In the 94th State Assembly District alone, the WPPA represents members from the following departments: Cambell, Holmen, LaCrosse County, Monroe County, Onalaska, Shelby, and West Salem.
