Statement on Passing of Marty Beil
Madison – Martha Laning, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, issued the following statement on the loss of labor leader Marty Beil.
“Marty Beil was a tireless champion for workers in Wisconsin and our state was a better place because he was speaking up for us. He woke up every day determined to make sure workers in our state had a seat at the table and a voice to better their working conditions. His commitment to ensure working families were treated fairly is legendary and the Democratic Party of Wisconsin was proud to stand with Marty during the Act 10 battle. He was a leader for over forty years at AFSCME who will be missed, but we will all be standing up for him as we continue to speak up in support of working families in Wisconsin. Our sympathies are with his family during this difficult time. In solidarity we salute him.”
