scott-fitzgeraldSenator says they do not believe in bi-partisanship, respecting our system of government, fair play or the will of the people.


GREEN BAY, WI - State Senator Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) released the following statement today on the Republican legislators and their actions this week in Madison.

dave-hansen“Having been rejected by the voters, Scott Walker and his lackeys in the legislature are resorting to doing what they do best: rigging the system any way they can for their own benefit and the benefit of their corporate donors at the expense of the people.

“True to form they hatched this scheme behind closed doors, sprang it on the public at the last possible minute and are now doing everything they can to ram it through before Governor-elect Evers and Attorney General-elect Kaul take office and before the public realizes what happened.

“The truth is that Scott Walker and the Republican Party do not believe in democracy. They do not believe in bi-partisanship, respecting our system of government, fair play or the will of the people. They believe in only one thing: their own political power.

“If any doubts remain after what we’ve witnessed over the last 8 years, tomorrow’s lame duck session should dispel them once and for all.”

MADISON - RootsCamp begins this Friday. If you haven’t gotten your tickets, yet, we recommend you do it now. You’ll want to connect with the hundreds of leaders from across the country who’re joining us to reflect on everything we learned this year and to strategize for comes next.

2018 has been an unprecedented year in politics. The midterm elections showed us the energetic force of communities, especially communities at the margins, organizing and campaigning with an unapologetic vision of justice. We had women run for office at an all-time high, and we sent a record number of them to Congress. We made history on multiple fronts. That’s why we’re thrilled that our keynote speaker for RootsCamp 2018 is Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar (MN-05).

Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar is a leader making waves by championing inclusive politics. She’s the first Somali-American elected to the United States Congress, representing Minnesota's 5th congressional district. She is also one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, alongside the incredible Representative-elect Rashida Tlaib (MI-13). There’s so much more we could share about her, but we’ll stop there. Join us at RootsCamp and hear more from her!

She’s one of our many plenary and panel speakers that reflect the vibrancy of our communities and the power of inclusive politics -- stay tuned to find out more.

Get your tickets for RootsCamp today. You won’t want to miss out on this. #Roots18

See you on Friday,
Deepa Kunapuli
