In the Wisconsin State Senate...

  • Lots of action in the Senate this week including bills to adopt the Trump tax plan in Wisconsin and make rich people richer. And bills to allow big companies to cheat on their tax credits and keep cheating if an old audit didn’t catch what they were doing.

  • Republicans keep saying tax credits create jobs and increase wages. A woman called the office last week. She and her husband work for a company that pays no income taxes because of the credits. She said neither one has had a raise in four years. The Republican promise is not kept.



Moving Broadband Forward in Wisconsin


On the Campaign Trail...

  • Wednesday night an enthusiastic crowd of more than 100 gathered at Brink Lounge in Madison for a fundraiser, rally and pizza party. Sen. Fred Risser, whose grandfather had a farm in Buffalo County, introduced Kathleen. “She is not out there pushing special interests. She is out there pushing the needs of Wisconsin. We could not go wrong with Kathleen as our Governor.

  • Thursday night Kathleen was with Democrats in Polk County on the other side of the state. Polk is part of new Senator Patty Schachtner’s District. Kathleen asked the assembled crowd, “Are you looking for hope? I have one word, ‘Patty’. To win in November our message must be clear, compelling and convincing.  We must put People First. At the center of state policy. The priority when it comes to spending state dollars. Our campaign will beat Big Money by building from the bottom up, by depending on People Power, by listening to local wisdom.”

  • Action Teams are now forming in a third of Wisconsin’s counties with more on our schedule soon!


  • The campaign is looking for young people and experienced people to join us as Organizing Fellows. Interested students and oldsters should apply here.


People First! Second! And Third!
