Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mahlon Mitchell has been public servant for over 20 years as a Madison firefighter. He currently serves as President of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin and is the youngest and first African American to serve in the post. A longtime champion for working families and fair wages, Mahlon led the fire fighters in a monumental stand of solidarity with other public servants when the fight over collective bargaining and Scott Walker’s Act 10 law began in 2011. Despite being exempted from the bill, Mahlon and his fellow fire fighters marched on the Capitol with fellow working families that were threatened by the Budget Repair Bill.
Mahlon has traveled the state spreading the word about Scott Walker’s divisive policies and ran for Lieutenant Governor as the Democratic nominee in the 2012 recall election.
