MADISON–The Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) announced today its endorsement of Vicky Selkowe in her campaign to represent the 48th State Assembly District.
“In a crowded field of outstanding candidates, Vicky Selkowe’s experience and expertise are second-to-none,” said WPPA Executive Director, Jim Palmer. “Vicky will hit the ground running on day one. She is the best candidate to protect and promote public safety, and she will be a leader in our fight for Wisconsin’s working families.”
With over 11,000 members from nearly 400 local association affiliates, the WPPA is the state’s largest law enforcement group. WPPA serves its members in employee relations, collective bargaining, legislative lobbying, legal assistance, and with fraternal opportunities for members. The WPPA President currently serves on the executive board of the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO).
The 48th Assembly District includes the City of Monona, the Village of McFarland, the Towns of Dunn and Blooming Grove, and the City of Madison. WPPA represents members from the following departments: Madison, Dane County, Monona and McFarland.
The seat is vacant due to Joe Parisi’s recent election as Dane County Executive. A Democratic primary will be held on July 12.
