Pledging to Stand With Crime Victims
With the election season upon us, the Marsy's Law for Wisconsin team has been hard at work getting our Stand With Crime Victims Pledge out to candidates for legislative office from all over the State of Wisconsin. As most of our supporters know, our legislation passed with overwhelming bipartisan support on first consideration as 2017 Senate Joint Resolution 53. However, there are many more votes to go to make Marsy's Law a reality in Wisconsin.
Our team wants to help ensure that Marsy's Law remains a priority for the next legislative session, when our legislation must pass the Senate and Assembly again on second consideration early in 2019 to be put before voters next April. That's why we're asking everyone who is running for State Assembly or Senate this fall to take the pledge and commit to supporting victims' rights next session. We want all of these candidates to know that Wisconsin's voters overwhelmingly support Marsy's Law!
We're so glad to have enjoyed so much support from Wisconsin's elected officials, and we're thrilled to see signed pledges already rolling in! We wanted to take a moment to thank all of the candidates who have already committed to standing with crime victims by taking our pledge:
- Senator Van Wanggaard
- Senator Tim Carpenter
- Representative Cody Horlacher
- Representative Andre Jacque
- Representative Ron Tusler
- Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt
- Representative Rick Gundrum
- Representative Steve Doyle
- Joshua Parr for Assembly District 14
- Mark A Martello for Assembly District 35
- Barbara Dittrich for Assembly District 38
- Art Shrader for Assembly District 50
- Ken Depperman for Assembly District 59
- Eric Larsen for Assembly District 91
- Chris Meier for Assembly District 34
- Matt Adamczyk for Assembly District 14
- Timothy S Ramthun for Assembly District 59
Make sure to stay tuned for updates on all of the legislative candidates who sign on to the pledge, and be sure to ask your local legislators and legislative candidates whether they've committed to standing with crime victims before you vote this November!
