Madison, WI –Today, former Wisconsin First Lady Sue Ann Thompson (R- Wisconsin, 1987-2001), Congressman Ron Kind, (D – Wisconsin, 1997-Present), State Senator Dale Schultz (R – Richland Center, 1991-2015), and State Senator Tim Cullen (D – Janesville, 1975-1987, 2011-2015) officially announced their support for Justice Ann Walsh Bradley.
This distinguished bi-partisan group of political leaders joins more than 100 law enforcement officials who endorsed Justice Bradley for re-election last week.
“In this time of partisan divide, we join together in our support of Justice Ann Walsh Bradley,” said former Wisconsin First Lady Sue Ann Thompson. “We share her commitment to maintaining a Wisconsin Supreme Court that is fair, neutral and non-partisan.”
Former Republican State Senator Dale Schultz added, “Each of us comes from a different background. We belong to different political parties. But we all know and respect Justice Bradley. She is intelligent, she has enormous integrity and she believes to her core that our courts must remain free of outside special interest influences.”
“She cares deeply about our State and shares the values we hold dear: hard work, family, community and service to others,” added Congressman Kind.
“Justice Bradley has served the people of Wisconsin with distinction for 20 years, making tough but fair decisions based on the law and the facts,” concluded former Democratic State Senator Tim Cullen. “That’s exactly the kind of Justice we want – and deserve – on our state’s highest court.”
Thompson, Kind, Schultz, and Cullen announced that they would be sending a joint letter to the editor to news outlets around the state supporting Justice Bradley.
For the last two decades Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has served the people of Wisconsin on the Supreme Court. She was first elected in 1995, becoming only the third woman in the state’s history to win election to Wisconsin’s highest court. Prior to serving on the Supreme Court Justice Bradley was a Circuit Court Judge for ten years in Marathon County.
Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices are elected in the non-partisan April elections for 10-year terms. Election Day is April 7, 2015.
