Recall Scott Walker






                                                                                                        Hi Democrats and supporters,


The recall has been set and now the planning for the rest of the year has to begin. What was to be an exciting and important fall election has become even more dramatic with the looming recall elections for Governor, Lt. Governor , and four State Senators. That, and redistricting make 2012 a very challenging year for Wood County Democrats, especially for those in the Marshfield area. Marshfield has been redistricted into four new districts, meaning our current State legislators, Julie Lassa, and Amy Sue Vruwink will no longer be our representatives (they will still represent Wood Cty, south of Marshfield)

With the recalls now underway, we pretty much have to get into election mode soon and stay there thru the November elections. That is going to take a huge effort and a lot of money. Because we all now know that elections do matter we need to make sure our efforts are successful. That means we need to be coordinated and efficient with our resources, time (labor) and dollars (funding).

The Wood County Democratic Party hopes to be able to have election offices in both Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids for the recalls and in the general election. That will take more money than we have typically raised in the past. It will take a lot more money than we currently have and we need to know that we can raise those dollars before we commit to leasing space. At present we are about 25% to our proposed goal of $10,000. Also it is crucial that we have a coordinated action plan to be efficient with those dollars we raise. To that end, April is an important month as a starting time for fundraising.
On Sunday April 29th, we will be hosting our Spring fundraiser dinner. This event is meant to raise money so bear that in mind. Also understand that all the money raised will only go to the Wood County Party, and not to any one candidate or to the state party. The importance of defeating Scott Walker and his fellow republicans cannot be overestimated in terms of undoing the damage that is being brought to Wisconsin (and Washington) by their policies.

2012 Spring Dinner and Auction

We have invited all the major candidates for state and national offices and those who have accepted our invite have also agreed to being raffled off for 5-10 minutes of ‘private’ conversation, meaning that we will pick names out of a hat and the winners get time with a candidate by themselves.

“We face big and difficult challenges. And what the American people hope — what they deserve — is for all of us, Democrats and Republicans, to work through our differences; to overcome the numbing weight of our politics. For while the people who sent us here have different backgrounds and different stories and different beliefs, the anxieties they face are the same. The aspirations they hold are shared. A job that pays the bill. A chance to get ahead. Most of all, the ability to give their children a better life.”
