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.

SIGN PAINTING PARTY

    The Shawano County Democrats held a sign painting party on Wednesday, August 12th. The event was held at the home of Shawano County Democrats Chairperson Jan Koch.

    Pictured below is 8th District Congressional Candidate Amanda Stuck who was on hand to join in the sign making effort.

FEBRUARY 18TH STATE SUPREME COURT PRIMARY

The State Supreme Court election will have an impact on generations to come.  Important issues will be decided by who we elect for the next 10 year term. With the census quickly approaching, we need someone who cares about the integrity of our democracy.

We need a fair and impartial judge.  

  • Jill Karofsky is an energetic former state and local prosecutor who says she has the experience and values to get our Supreme Court back on track. 
  • Ed Fallone says he has the independence, fairness and integrity to be a justice.  He has taught future Supreme Court judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys.
  • Judge Kelly was put on the court by Scott Walker.  He consistently makes legal decisions not based on the rule of law but based on what his right wing special interest backers want.

Contact your municipal clerk to vote early or get an absentee ballot.

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!

FEBRUARY 19TH MEETING
7:00 pm
Shawano Civic Center

Our speaker will be Carlene Bechen who is the Fair Maps Organizer for Wisconsin Voices.  She hopes to bring along a colleague of hers who is involved the census.
