Contribute to the energy!

From Saturday November 3 until Tuesday evening there will be serious Get-Out-the-Vote efforts. 

  • On Saturday Beau Liegeois, Candidate for Congress, will be in Shawano from 11:15 am-12-15 pm.  He will be speaking in the back room of the Glas Coffee House at 11:15 and then proceed to Angie’s Main Cafe to shake a few hands.  From there he will go to the Dem’s Office at 105 Airport Road to fire up some canvassers and phone bankers. Stop by and give him your support.
  • More help is needed to make sure that we turn Wisconsin blue.  Some of the polls are tightening and we need to do all we can to make sure that we get Democrats out to vote. Canvassing and calling shifts will be on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at 9am, 12pm, 3pm and 5pm.  Call the office number 715-201-0809 between noon and 8pm on Thursday or any time during the weekend to sign up for one or more shifts.  Carrie can also be reached at 715-758-7918 on Friday.  Please leave a message if no one answers.
  • We hope to be celebrating on Tuesday night.  There will be a Democratic Watch Party at the Shawano Lake Golf Course from 8pm-12am.  Richard Sarnwick’s band, Lonesome Road, will be playing from 9:30-10:15.

Please help make Wisconsin a progressive state again by doing this together!
