wdc-logoMADISON - I ran up to Marshfield yesterday morning to participate in a press conference denouncing gerrymandering and promoting the Fair Maps for Wisconsin Summit, which is being held in Marshfield on Saturday, Nov. 9, just four weeks from tomorrow.

It was a great press conference. The highlight for me was hearing from former Assembly Representative Amy Sue Vruwink, who used to represent Marshfield before her own district was gerrymandered. Click here for her comments, and for a full account of the press conference:

Gerrymandering Denounced in Marshfield

I also want to salute the amazing work that the Oregon Area Progressives and their organizer, Carlene Bechen, have done in laying the groundwork for this summit. For more information on speakers and panels and how you can attend, please go here:

We posted two other stories this week that might interest you. The first is about an anti-consumer and pro-insurance company bill that almost no one else is paying attention to:

Senate Approves Cutting Notice Time for Insurance Policy Changes

And the second is about the plans by Richard Uihlein, one of the biggest donors to Wisconsin Republicans – and GOP candidates nationally – to bring Vice President Pence to an event in our state next week:

GOP Megadonors Host VP Pence

For the big donors, it’s still business as usual.

I hope you like these postings. Stay warm this weekend!

Best,

Matt Rothschild
