Jan Pierce endorsed by ATU Local 998

Just a bit of news about Jan Pierce, the challenger to incumbent Milwaukee Alderman Tony Zielinski, who represents Milwaukee’s 14th Aldermanic district.

Earlier today Pierce’s campaign announced it had been endorsed by Local 998 of the Amalgamated Transit Union:

“I am honored to receive the trust and support of the ATU,” said Pierce. “Transit is a vital component of our city, and I am grateful for the endorsement of the workers who make it happen.”

The members of ATU Local 998 chose to endorse Pierce because of his grasp of the issues facing bus drivers, bus riders, and the Milwaukee area community as a whole.

“Jan Pierce has demonstrated a superior understanding of transit issues in Southeast Wisconsin and what transit contributes to a city like Milwaukee,” said Angela Walker, ATU Legislative Director for Local 998. “We are excited to get behind him and support his campaign for Alderman.”
