Statement on the death of constituent and change agent for working families Marty Beil.
“Marty Beil lived his life working to improve the lives of public employees all over Wisconsin. Even after his retirement he did not stop contributing to positive change. At a recent corrections officers meeting in Portage during his brief retirement, Marty offered his support, his knowledge and his humor; these attributes made Marty a great leader and a good man. Our hearts pour out for his family, his friends and the labor community who have lost a true great in Marty Beil. Earlier this year we were honored to commend Marty on his long career and retirement. The last line of our citation sums it up: Representative Dave Considine and Senator Jon Erpenbach do hereby recognize and thank Marty Beil for his decades of hard work, leadership, and deep personal sacrifices for Wisconsin workers, their families, and the labor movement.”
