Return Pedro Colon to the State Assembly
The South Side of Milwaukee faces many critical issues that can be helped by progressive state legislation and an effective representative.
Colon is opposed by Laura Manriquez, a licensed practical nurse, and Jose Guzman. Manriquez, who serves as chairwoman of Esperanza Unida’s board of directors, has a strong passion for solving the issues of her neighbors and would-be constituents and has raised a lot of pertinent questions about Colon in this campaign. (Guzman did not respond to our requests to fill out our candidate questionnaire; he has been helped by former state Sen. Tom Reynolds’ conservative PAC.) Although Manriquez has potential as an advocate for her district, we feel that Colon is a better choice.
