As I’ve been trying to make sense of the results of June 5th, I keep thinking about how proud I am of the fight we fought over the 16 months since February of last year. Many of you have joined your county party and you helped us with a massive campaign effort. We were able to staff more offices and contact more voters than in most fall elections. And we were one of the few counties that were able to increase our voter turnout over Fall 2010 and our margin over our opponents. Combined with an incredibly successful spring election season, we have many reasons to hold our heads high.
What we should take away from June’s election is that the need to continue the fight is more vital than ever. Whether we won or lost, the need to defend our values and fight to put Dane County families first ahead of out-of-state interests would still be necessary. If we want to make more history this year by sending Tammy Baldwin to the US Senate, re-electing Barack Obama and Joe Biden, keeping our majority in the State Senate and taking back the State Assembly, we need you to stay fighting with us!
The first way you can do this is to renew your membership in the Democratic Party. You can renew online through the State Party. Or, you can print out this form and send it in to Democratic Party of Dane County, P.O. Box 2082, Madison, WI 53701 – or bring it to the Summer Picnic on the 21st.
Your membership renewal will give us the resources to continue fighting this fall and to make history. Please join us!
