Action Items for the Week of March 24

[From our Friends at Indivisible]

It’s normal to feel a bit disappointed after the two-year buildup that was Mueller’s investigation. We were all ready to see Trump and his cronies brought to justice. That didn’t happen with Mueller’s report. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t get to know the whole truth, and our asks remain the same:

  • Release the full report. 
  • Continue investigations in Congress to hold Trump accountable.

Spring 2019 Election, April 2, 2019

Let's face it, the GOP has been doing a better job at taking control of the government. One way has been to motivate people to vote for judicial elections, which can have long-lasting effects on our democracy. Our opponents have been turning out for spring elections, and we have to, as well. There ARE more of us, but if we don't vote, that doesn't matter.

Be the Blue Wave!

With all the talk of a Blue Wave in 2018, it's easy to think of it as a phenomenon we read about in the news or hear on TV or the radio.

In fact, it's something we all DO. And if we don't do it, it doesn't happen.

Wauwatosa is fortunate to be fielding four candidates who will support our progressive agenda of fair taxation, sound public education, world-class infrastructure, and democratic government. We are asking you to pitch in to support:

Tom Palzewitz, who is challenging F.James Sensenbrenner in the 5th Congressional District
Julie Henszey, is running against Dale Kooyenga in the 5th State Senate;
Dennis McBride, who is running against Walker rubber stamp Rob Hutton in the 13th Assembly District; and
Robyn Vining, who is running against a plethora of GOP extremists for the 14th Assembly District
