A fourth key senator, Jerry Petrowski, has been identified as a fourth GOP senator who might be willing to vote against the pro-corruption legislation being rammed through this week, if enough constituents contact him to override the pressure he’s getting from extremist party bosses.
Contact anyone you know who lives in the following areas and urge them to contact their senator to defeat these bills (see below), which attack our freedom to exercise our right to self-government:
10th Senate District – Burnett, Polk, St. Croix, or Pierce Counties, including River Falls, Hudson, and St. Croix Falls
Sen. Sheila Harsdorf -Contact info: (608) 266-7745
Legislative Aide – Jennifer Krantz — firstname.lastname@example.org
14th Senate District –Waupaca, Waushara, Adams, Marquette, Dodge, or Columbia Counties, including Montello, Ripon, Waupaca, and Weyawega
Sen. Luther Olsen – Conact info: (608) 266-0751
Policy Advisor – Jenna Zantow – email@example.com 266-0751
29th Senate District— All or parts of Sawyer, Rusk, Taylor, and Marathon Counties, including Wausau & environs, Mosinee, Hayward, Ladysmith, and Medford.
Sen. Jerry Petrowski – Contact info: (608) 266-2502
Legislative Aide – Matt Gralinski – Matthew.Gralinski@legis.wisconsin.gov
Please forward this information to anyone you know who lives in any of those districts and ask them quickly to email or call their senator to tell them to vote against the bills that will:
1) destroy nonpartisan elections administration and ethics accountability (Senate Bill 294);
2) remove functional limits on anonymous campaign donations (SB292); and
3) exempt politicians from certain criminal investigations (SB43).
The calls and emails don’t need to explain why the bills are bad; the senators know that or they wouldn’t be on this short list of possible opponents. What the senators need to know is that their constituents want them to preserve government accountability and limits on campaign finance.
