ron-johnsonMADISON - We already knew that Sen. Ron Johnson plans to support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, but it’s his support for a candidate right here at home that raises even more  serious questions on his judgement.

rebecca-bradleySen. Johnson has now rushed to defend extremist Rebecca Bradley, who infamously penned blatantly homophobic, sexist, and abhorrent comments about the very Wisconsinites over whom she would preside. Yet rather than condemning Bradley, Sen. Johnson praised her as exactly the type of person he wants in a judge.

LISTEN to the clip and read the transcript of Johnson’s comments below:


JOHNSON: If you ever ask yourself the question, how come we don't have more good people run for public office? Go no further than take a look at what's been happening to Rebecca Bradley. A real judge, by the way. Somebody who has the restraint, the integrity, the fidelity to the written Constitution. That's what we need.

andy-jorgensenMADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) announced today that Rep. Andy Jorgensen (D-Milton) will not run for re-election to the Assembly this fall.

peter_barca“It has been a pleasure to serve alongside Rep. Jorgensen for the past eight years, including four years where he served as Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus," said Barca in his statement. "Rep. Jorgensen has shown tremendous leadership in our caucus and played a crucial role in advancing our Democratic agenda focused on creating jobs, strengthening public education and improving economic opportunity for all our citizens."

Perhaps Rep. Jorgensen’s greatest accomplishment was when he led two separate successful efforts to save SeniorCare. By collecting petition signatures, working with stakeholders and raising awareness on this issue, Rep. Jorgensen helped preserve a life-saving Wisconsin program that also saves participants and taxpayers tens of millions of dollars every year.

“As those who have met Rep. Jorgensen at town halls, community events, grocery stores and countless other places throughout the 43rd District can attest, he has always been an accessible, passionate and dedicated legislator who truly cares about his constituents and our state," said Barca. "We wish him and his family the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

will-petersGREEN BAY - As you may know, with the support of my neighbors I have gotten my name on the Spring 2016 General Election ballot. I am running for Brown County Board of Supervisors, District 8. I am running because I care deeply about the quality of life in my community and want to do my part to improve it. This will not be possible without your support.

Brown County deserves someone who will wear his community pride on his shoulder. Brown County deserves someone who will treat his constituents and colleagues with dignity and respect. Brown County deserves someone who not only focuses on the needs of his constituents, but Brown County as a whole. I am that someone. However, in order to effectively reach my constituents I need your support.

Brown County does not deserve someone who spits on his fellow representatives, makes racist and sexist remarks. Brown County does not deserve someone who picks and chooses who he represents. Brown County does not deserve someone who holds grudges and builds walls. Guy Zima has not lived up to his role as Brown County Supervisor and has been more of an embarrassment than an effective leader.

I need your help to beat Guy Zima. I need your help to reach my neighbors to inform them of what I can do for them and our County. You can help me by donating $25, $50, or up to the individual contribution limit of $500. If you are able to donate please mail a check to Citizens for William Peters 233 N. Ashland Ave. Green Bay, WI 54303 or click here.

With your help we will make Brown County a more vibrant and healthy place to live!!

Thank you for your support,

Will Peters
