Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin
Reacts to Thompson 9/11 TV AD
Mahlon Mitchell, President of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin, today
released the following statement condemning the new television ad by the Thompson
US Senate campaign.
"It's desperate and disgusting for Tommy Thompson to play politics with the loss of
human life and the 9/11 tragedy. For Tommy Thompson to attack Tammy Baldwin's
patriotism and make dishonest claims about her strong record of accomplishment
supporting first responders is simply disgraceful. We stand with Tammy Baldwin
against these dishonorable political tactics that have no place in Wisconsin."
(The PFFW represents over 3,200 fire fighters and EMT/paramedics in 57 communities across Wisconsin
including those in every Milwaukee County community except the City of Milwaukee and West Milwaukee.)
