Weekend of Action this Weekend

This election is crucial to our democracy and we need all hands on deck.  We had a great Democratic Party Convention.  Now it is time to do what we can to elect Joe Biden.  
 
We are having a Weekend of Action this weekend.  You can sign up to make phone calls either in our office or at home.  Sign up by clicking here:

FAIR MAPS VOTE

Shawano County Board’s Executive Committee unanimously approved a resolution asking the Legislature to create a nonpartisan procedure for the drawing of redistricting maps.  This would end the gerrymandering we have been living with.  Please call your County Board Supervisor and tell them to vote “yes” at the Aug. 26th County Board meeting.  If you would like to give your support to our efforts, come to the meeting which begins at 3:00 pm.

THERE ARE NO EASY ANSWER FOR SCHOOL REOPENINGS

Parents are terrified and they should be.  COVID-19 is extremely infectious.

It’s a tough time for parents and school districts.  They are forced to make decisions they don’t want to make.

With no federal guidelines to follow, each school district must wrestle with how best to accommodate all students in a safe environment.  Options include returning to virtual learning started in the spring, the usual in-class instruction or some combination of the two.
