We have yard signs for Joe Biden, Amanda Stuck, Richard Sarnwick (6th Assembly District), Ed Vocke (12th State Senate) and Aaron Damrau (Independent candidate for District Attorney). We are open if you see the “Democratic Party of Shawano County” sign outside the office.
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.
Our August 19th meeting will be held at 7:00 pm outside the office at 1404 E. Green Bay St. Enter the driveway across from Perkins and angle park on the side of the building. Bring a lawn chair and face-mask. Signs will be available for pick up. If it rains, you will be sent a Zoom link.
Speakers include Steve Menard, who will talk about voting security, and Independent District Attorney candidate Aaron Damrau.
We have an exciting week ahead. The virtual convention gives everyone more opportunity to participate in the events. The main link to the convention schedule and other events is www.demconvention.com.

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.
The Shawano Dems will be painting signs on Wednesday, August 12th at Koch residence on the west shore of Shawano Lake. We will be painting the base coat from 10:00-12:00 am. Richard Sarnwick and Amanda Stuck will be there to help.
Around 2:00 pm we will be spray painting the lettering which should take a few hours.
If you can help out, send Jan Koch an email or call/text at 715-296-6726 telling what time you can come. She will respond with her address.
Read about the Wisconsin face mask requirement below. The order takes place at midnight on Saturday, August 1st.
