It’s Election Time
April 5th is just around the corner and the excitement is growing.
Not only are Presidential candidates being chosen but there are also other races. Two candidates who are challenging existing county board members are Roger Miller from District 20 (township of Bartelme, part of Red Springs and the village of Bowler) and Tom Madsen from District 20 (parts of the townships of Herman and Red Springs and the village of Gresham). William J. Switalla is running for re-election from District 24. Justice JoAnne Kloppengburg has emerged as one of the two candidates who be on the ballot as a Supreme Court Judge. She vows to be non-partisan, independent and free from special interests. Be sure and vote!
We are looking for volunteers to make phone calls before the spring election. We want to update our Voter Activation Network and get out the vote. Please contact Rick Adamski if you could help call Democrats and Independents and remind them to vote.
