WISCONSIN RECOUNT

There is a possiblity that there will be a ballot recount.   If it happens, it will start as early as Saturday, November 21st and run to December 3rd (we expect all counties to adjourn for Thanksgiving Day). The recount occurs simultaneously in 72 counties, so we need a lot of help to support this effort. We know if they count all the votes again, our win will be reaffirmed.

The Wisconsin Coordinated Campaign is offering several online training opportunities over the next few days to give interested folks an understanding of the commitment and how we can safely help observe the recount. You can sign up here to join.

After this first training, anyone who is still interested in helping will fill out an interest form to learn more about the next steps.  While a recount may or may not happen, we won this election by a clear and decisive margin, and a recount will only reaffirm this victory. 
If you know of someone else who might be interested, please let them know.  PPE masks, shields and hand sanitizer will be available and social distancing will be observed.

AMANDA STUCK CAMPAIGN

Amanda is a great candidate but she can’t get her ads on television until mid October unless she has more donations.  Like other counties in the 8th Congressional District, we have painted signs for her.  Donate below:

Amanda is spending every hour she can getting around the district to meet voters — with masks and good social distancing, of course!

Just last weekend we were out placing yard signs around the district so that voters know just how much support there is for Amanda.

And finally, we’re running digital ads to reach voters on an even wider scale. In fact, just last week, we released an ad featuring Amanda’s grandmother (you can watch it here).
All of these campaign activities are necessary to winning on November 3, but they all have a cost. And, since Amanda is refusing to take corporate PAC money, we rely on your support to buy gas, print yard signs, and run digital ads.
Right now, we’re looking to raise another $11,258 before the end of the quarter at midnight on Wednesday. Can we count on you to chip in $10 or $15 today?
If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

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.
