Congresswoman Gwen Moore Statement on 15th Milwaukee Aldermanic District:

“With the departure of Willie Hines, after his long and distinguished service, the voters in the 15th Aldermanic District have an opportunity to select a new alderman.

“With so many qualified candidates, from former county supervisor Eyon Biddle Sr. to current county supervisor Russell Stamper II, I am not making an endorsement in this race.

“It is my hope that the individual succeeding Willie Hines serves the 15th district with honor. I wish all candidates the best of luck and look forward to working with the newly elected alderman.

Renewing this bill is an important step towards making sure no one in America is forced to live in fear, and I look forward to signing it into law as soon as it hits my desk."

Washington looked mighty dysfunctional this past week, except if you were watching Congresswoman Gwen Moore at work.

The Milwaukee Democrat has long been a champion of women’s rights in Congress. And she put herself way out front in the fight to renew the Violence Against Women Act.

Moore battled for two years to win renewal of the act, eventually emerging as the chief House sponsor of a robust version that not only maintained the act’s existing commitments but extended protections for gays and lesbians, Native Americans and immigrants. She attracted 200 co-sponsors for her bill, and she kept them firm in their support of it even as conservative Republicans attacked the measure.
