American Federation of Teachers Local 212: Endorses Burns for Supreme Court
Milwaukee, WI – Today the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Local 212 announces their endorsement of Tim Burns for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Local 212 President Dr. Lisa Conley states, “Economic insecurity and poverty are huge obstacles to success for our students, many of whom are the first in their family to attend college. It is hard for students to focus on their studies and to reach their career goals when they are struggling to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.
That is why I’m pleased to announce Local 212’s endorsement of Tim Burns for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Tim understands the plight of many students and their families as he experienced his family’s financial hardships while growing up. Those struggles have shaped Tim’s values and the person that he is today.”
