In February of last year, Scott Walker and his friends in the State Capitol started ramming through an extremist agenda unlike we've ever seen. Within months they changed Wisconsin's government to a point where we no longer can recognize it. They were counting on us to be dispirited from the 2010 elections and let them get away with this. We proved them wrong in the streets of Madison - bringing an outpouring of people that made history.
They were counting on us to forget it and not collect enough signatures during the winter holiday. We proved them wrong again in every city, village and town in Wisconsin by collecting over a million signatures against Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch and four State Senators.
They are counting on you to have recall fatigue and to not do any more to take back Wisconsin. We have to prove them wrong one more time!
We only have two weeks to go before the Recall Election. I am asking every one of you to do what you can to help make Tom Barrett and Mahlon Mitchell our next Governor and Lieutenant Governor and help elect Lori Compas to the State Senate to represent Eastern Dane County. Here is a list of activities and events where youare needed:
- If you have any time to spare, please sign up with the Democratic Party to canvass and phone bank. We need people to make the important voter-to-voter contacts to remind them to vote from now until the polls close on June 5th. This is where the real work needs to happen in order to win. Scott Walker has more than enough Koch Brothers' money. We have to beat them with more people! Sign up here - http://bit.ly/dane2012gotv.
- If you wish to do the same work for Lori Compas, sign up at http://www.loricompas.org/take-action/volunteer/
- Next Wednesday (May 30th), from 5:30 to 7:00PM, join Russ Feingold at the Majestic Theatre (115 King Street) for a Rally /Fundraiser for Tom Barrett.
- And if you are interested in signs, you may get them from the 210 North Bassett Street Recall Office. A $10 contribution or volunteer time will get you one.
Whatever you can do and however you can do it, we need you now. This is the moment we dreamed about in the snow in 2011. This is our moment. Let's take back Wisconsin and make history.
Forward, towards victory!
