Members of the Shawano County Democratic Party are sponsoring a chili dump on Dec. 2 at the Civic Center (225 S. Main St.) beginning at 6:00 p.m. This is an opportunity to meet those individuals who have announced their candidacy for State Assembly and Senate races and to contribute to their campaigns. Attending will be 6th Assembly Candidate Bill Switalla., a businessman from Wittenburg. Two State Senate candidates will also be there. Travis Bille from Kaukauna is running for the 2nd District seat. He is the 8th Congressional District’s elected representative to the WI Administrative Committee for the DPW. Dave Polashek, the past superintendent of the Oconto Falls School District, is a candidate for the 12th Senate District.
This event will also be a chance for progressives to get together at this festive time of year and have some fun! Cookies, apple cider and egg nog will also be served along with the chili. Plan to attend.
