MADISON, (Wis.) – The Wisconsin Professional Police Association’s Political Action Committee has launched several billboards in a number of legislative races. The group’s endorsements were the result of membership input, the results of its legislative report card rankings, as well as the candidates’ responses to its questionnaire.
“The WPPA has a proud history of supporting candidates that can demonstrate a commitment to addressing the economic challenges confronting this state while protecting the services that Wisconsinites have come to expect and deserve,” said Jim Palmer, the WPPA’s Executive Director. “We are convinced that the candidates supported by our billboards will fight to keep the state’s fiscal crisis from compromising the quality of public safety services available in our communities.”
The WPPA represents nearly 11,000 active and retired members from almost 400 local associations statewide. With over 75 years of service to law enforcement personnel, the WPPA is recognized as a leading law enforcement association in Wisconsin.
The billboards appearing throughout the various legislative districts appear as follows:
