Andy and I served together on the AFSCME Wisconsin State Employees Union bargaining team. Ironically, he was killed soon after returning to his post after getting us a contract. The kid who shot him was a former student of his in a high school gun safety class (a commonplace in rural Wisconsin); so when the domestic disturbance call came in to the local sheriff's office, where he was making a courtesy visit ON HIS OWN TIME, he volunteered to go along with the deputies. He never even got a chance to get out of his truck before the fatal shots came.
