Board President Peter Blewett and Michael Mathias

MPS Board President Peter Blewett is the best choice for voters in District 6, and he’s the best choice to lead the board in the coming years. Blewett is a strong advocate for public education in Milwaukee and his fight to get adequate funding for MPS shows that he’s willing to dig in his heels and do what’s right for the district...

Tony Evers for State Superintendent

Education must be one of our top priorities. Without a strong public education system, our next generation will fail—not just personally; they’ll also fail our state. We can’t let that happen. That’s why voters should choose Tony Evers, who is currently the deputy state superintendent. Evers isn’t running as a flashy...

Shirley Abrahamson Has Earned Another Term

Perhaps the easiest and most satisfying vote on April 7 is the one cast for Supreme Court of Wisconsin Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

ENDORSEMENTS 2008

Linda Flashinski would be a welcome alternative to Robin Vos, the Republican incumbent representing the western portion of Racine County, the 63rd Assembly District. Unfortunately for his constituents, Vos is more interested in serving the interests of his party’s leaders than helping Racine workers get to their jobs.

ENDORSEMENTS 2008

The Shepherd Express strongly endorses Democrat Sandra Pasch for the open seat in the 22nd Assembly District, which encompasses the North Shore suburbs and part of Milwaukee. Pasch won the highly competitive Democratic primary in September and is still campaigning hard for the general election.

ENDORSEMENTS 2008

Assembly Republicans proved last year that they are not putting the best interests of Wisconsin residents first. Republican leaders were happy to play games— and fund-raise—while shamelessly stalling budget negotiations.

Sheldon Wasserman and Robert Wirch

Sheldon Wasserman is the best choice for North Shore residents. Wasserman, an ob-gyn who has served in the state Assembly since 1994, is well positioned to become a leader in the state Senate on tax policy, health care and education reform. Although some Republican voters may hesitate to cross party lines and vote...
