The WPPA Endorses Pluess For State Assembly
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – On October 16, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) announced its endorsement of Justin Pluess in his race for the 72nd Assembly District. With more than 10,000 members, the WPPA is Wisconsin's largest law enforcement group.
The decision was made by its board of directors, which consists of elected rank-and-file officers from all across the state. The board evaluated both candidates and their responses to questionnaires on public safety issues and others of importance to the law enforcement community.
"As a fourth-generation fire fighter, Justin Pluess truly understands what it means to be a committed public servant and to put the needs of others above his own," WPPA Executive Director Jim Palmer said. "As a state representative, Justin will be a strong leader who works with law enforcement and fights for safer, more prosperous communities. We are proud to endorse Justin and lend him our full, enthusiastic support."
"I am deeply honored and humbled to receive the WPPA's endorsement," Pluess said. Republicans like Scott Krug have spent far too much time dividing us and making it harder for police officers, fire fighters and other public safety workers to do their jobs. I look forward to working with the WPPA and officials in our community to make the 72nd District a better place for our families."
Justin Pluess works for the City of Wisconsin Rapids as a firefighter and paramedic. He is also an adjunct fire instructor at Mid-State Technical College and serves as the UCC Regional Disaster Team Representative. Justin lives in Wisconsin Rapids with his wife, Alecia, and their two children.
