"Veterans for Brett" to Highlight Vets' Issues on Campaign Trail
Chairman Jason Johns: My fellow veterans have a stake in the race for Lt. Governor, and we’ve got a tireless advocate and friend in Brett Davis.
State Representative and Lieutenant Governor candidate Brett Davis recently announced the creation of a “Veterans for Davis” coalition in support of his bid for the state’s second highest office. Davis said he is “proud and honored” to have the support of many of Wisconsin’s true heroes.
“As Lieutenant Governor, I’m going to keep working to make sure Wisconsin keeps its promises to our veterans and helps repay them and their families for the sacrifices they made in keeping us safe,” said Davis.
The Veterans for Davis coalition will be chaired by Jason Johns, an Iraqi war veteran from Oregon, Wis. Johns’ decorated, ten-year military career has included a year-long combat tour in the Sunni Triangle with the Platteville-based 229th Combat Support Engineers/244th Battalion/555 Brigade/4th Infantry Division, and three years as commander of the Oregon-Brooklyn-McFarland Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10272.
Johns said endorsing Brett Davis for Lieutenant Governor was an easy decision, based on Davis’ unwavering record of support for military members and their families in both the Legislature and in his personal life.
“As a constituent of Brett’s, I have seen firsthand his commitment to veterans and the issues we face,” Johns said. “Brett Davis understands veterans’ issues, period. He has always shown the utmost gratitude and respect to those who have served their country, and I have no doubt that he will take that attitude to the Lieutenant Governor’s office.
In the state Assembly, Davis voted twice to prohibit job discrimination based on military service, voted to improve and protect absentee balloting for troops around the world, voted to stabilize and protect the Veterans Trust Fund, and helped create the Gold Star license plate for family members of veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice.
