Campaigns, Elections and
When Mary Burke wins
the governorís office, she will have a
difficult time governing with a Republican
Senate and Assembly. I am sure you can imagine
what that might be like? So voting ONLY for
Mary Burke doesnít help. We need everyone to
vote all the way down the ticket!
Electing the three people below is
critical to taking back Wisconsin - they are
all very capable of winning their districts,
and they are all very capable of helping Mary
Burke achieve her goals, but they all really
need your help between now and November
Did you know a huge number of
Democrats and Democratic leaning voters donít
show up to vote in non presidential election
years? When they do Democrats win! How do we
change that? We need a superb turnout November

How can you help these candidates
win in November? Each campaign has a huge need
for volunteers. All you need to do is contact
their campaigns or call the office and we will
connect you to the campaign of your choice. Did
you know you can actually choose what it is you
want to do to help?
Our office, for
example, needs people to drive candidates or
walk with candidates while they knock on doors.
We need people to deliver yard signs. We need
people to put up yard signs in their own yards.
We need people to erect larger 4í by 4í signs.
We need donations of water, snacks, candy,
soda, paper, office supplies, cash for ink and
postage, and a
myriad of other items. We
need people who are willing to call other
Democratic voters to make sure they vote for
Phil, Gary, and Jeff! We need people to knock
on doors of Democrats to ask them to go to the
polls and vote! We need people to donate money
to the individual campaigns, so they have the
funds to compete.
We will never raise
the money in this area to compete with
Republican out of state funds, nor what the
Madison people think we should raise. It is
just not going to happen! But we do have an
In the past we have competed
because of the number of people involved in our
campaigns. We have always had the boots on the
ground - the volunteers willing to do the work
to get our candidates elected.
fewer people seem to want to be involved now,
which seems contrary to their best interests,
considering the awful direction the state is
going in and will continue to go in under
Republican leadership. Look forward to a right
to work for less state coming soon, private
unions going the way of public unions. Look
forward to public employees paying addition
pension costs and pension changes to give the
governor access to you money! Look forward to
greater state deficits so Republicans can show
the need to cut social programs and education
even more. Look forward to more voucher schools
and less money for public schools. There is so
much at stake!
I would love to say to hell
with politics, too, sometimes, and just go on
my merry way, and live my imagined retired life
of peace and serenity!
But I canít! I have
been blessed with a wonderful family and
friends, and I canít stop now!
