I want to make sure you heard about an event I will be hosting at the Court House Pub in Manitowoc on Thursday 27th! We will be giving an update on the campaign before the League of Women Voters Candidate forum at the Manitowoc City hall at 7pm. I strongly encourage you to attend both events! We are so close to November 8th and I need your support to win this race!
I am honored to announce that I have been endorsed by the Alliance for Retired Americans! There will be an official announcement this Friday, 11:00AM at the Winnebago Democratic Party Office, 480 N Main St, Oshkosh, WI 54901.
I am running for Congress because we need to ensure retirement security for all Americans, during these times of economic uncertainty we should be talking about how to strengthen pensions, social security, and other retirement programs not cut them.
My opponent sits on the House sub-committee that oversees pensions. I am hearing across the district that he is not responding to their requests for action on their pension issues. And he has failed to offer a clear position on protecting Social Security. This is not acceptable.
Social Security is the agreement made between people and the government and we must honor that. In the same way, pensions are an agreement between corporations and the hard working people that contributed over their working lives. People need retirement security. In Congress I will fight to make sure that Americans can retire with the dignity and comfort they deserve
Come join me, along with Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans Gregory Neil and Treasurer Bernie Faust to show your support for show your support for retired Americans and my vision for the 6th Congressional District. This event is free and open to the public! I strongly encourage you to join us and bring a friend this Friday, 11:00AM at the Winnebago Democratic Party Office to I hope to see you there!

I look forward to working together with Clean Wisconsin, farmers, industry, municipalities and private residences to support the best practices to reduce nutrient runoff and pollution from both point and nonpoint sources. If we do not address these issues head on and find workable solutions, we will not get a second chance.”
