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.

Talking Points on Gov. Evers’ Face Mask Requirement

    • COVID-19 is a global pandemic that has already taken the lives of more than 900 people in our state and more Americans than the Vietnam War.

    • Time is of the essence in responding to a crisis, and Gov. Evers and Democrats have worked quickly to respond to the challenges our state is facing because of COVID-19.

    • Our work to fight COVID-19 began several months ago, and what we learned pretty quickly is that our state’s response needed to rival the speed and strength of the virus we are up against.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF SHAWANO COUNTY

ATTENTION ALL VOTERS WHO HAVEN’T SEND IN THEIR ABSENTEE BALLOTS:

If you haven’t voted yet, please take these announcements into consideration. 

Tony Lee had just announced that he is a write-in candidate for State Senate District 2.  If he receives 1700 write-in votes, he will be on the ballot in the November election against Rob Cowles.  You can learn more about him by going to his Facebook page at “Tony Lee for State Senate” and looking for “My Story”.
 
Simon Moesch has announced that he is suspending his campaign for the 6th District Assembly seat.  He has decided to pursue a master’s degree in public administration at this time.  We wish him well in his studies and hope that he will bring his progressive views back to Shawano County.
 
On another note, the demand for Biden signs has been great.  The Shawano County Dems have ordered 275 signs to tide us over until a vice president is announced and signs reflecting that are available.  The signs on order should be arriving any day and an email will go out stating where they can be picked up.  

Democrats blast Trump for commuting Roger Stone: ‘The most corrupt president in history’

Democrats tore into President Trump on Friday after he commuted the prison sentence of longtime confidant Roger Stone, who was set to be behind bars for over three years starting next week. 

The president’s decision marked the finale of months-long “will he, won’t he” speculation over if or how Trump would intervene in Stone’s case, but opened up another avenue of criticism for Democrats who have been pounding on the White House on an array of issues.
