    happens here. I did Kloppenberg recount work, I canvassed for Jessica King. I donated money and time. I went to the Capitol during the protests to add my voice and presence to the crowd

    I have a daughter in middle-school who is being Fitzwalkered-on. Her and her friends are having their futures put at risk.

    I have friends who work for school districts and who are state workers who are in danger of losing their jobs in privatization schemes by the Republicans. I see Walker leading the charge to roll back environmental protections and harm our state parks just like he ruined the Milwaukee County Park System ... once one of the finest in the country.

    I want Walker out.

    I want the state senate and state assembly to be flipped.

    We will work our butts off to have that happen.

    Thanks for listening.

      always willing to be corrected or admonished if need be.  I figure either way I get to learn something.

      It's great that you're so impassioned about local politics.

      I just get sick thinking of how public education is being destroyed, never thought I'd see that in my lifetime.  My folks had a cottage in Northern WI near Eagle River and remember the pristine lakes and forests up there.  It makes me sick to think how Walker could usher in such a period of destruction with the environmental protections under siege right now.  I attended Carroll College for a brief time before moving to New York City in Waukesha and recall the wonderful Milwaukee County Park System as well.  Agreed it was one of the best in the nation.

      I would love Walker out too and contributed to the recall ads efforts earlier this year for the Senate.  I do wish you all the best because it really will be a tough battle going up against all the Koch Brothers money there.

        I lived in Waukesha for about 5 years and one of my friends taught at Carroll College in the 90s.

        It is a pretty right-wing area of the state which is why I am in Dane County now. The Fitzwalkers are trying to turn the whole state into Waukesha County.

        •  Yes Waukesha is very right wing. (1+ / 0-)

          I wish you all the best.

          This guy has got to go!  For the good of the people of the state of WI.
