This is it. This is history. This is when Wisconsin’s working, middle-class families make a stand by recalling Scott Walker so we can put our state government back in the hands of the people.
Thank you to the thousands of Wisconsinites that entered our "First to Sign" contest to be one of the first names to appear on the petitions that will be filed with the Government Accountability Board on January 17, 2012. Here are the lucky winners that will be attending events tonight and tomorrow to kickoff our grassroots effort to recall Scott Walker:
Dozens of groups around the state have announced plans to hold Recall Walker parties at midnight tonight for volunteers, organizers and supporters to begin signing and circulating petitions.
So, get your John Hancock ready and meet up with some friends tonight to be one of the first to sign the petition and take the first step in ending Scott Walker’s assault on Wisconsin families.
Can you feel the excitement?
We're just 4 days away from finally being able to circulate petitions to recall Scott Walker.
Wisconsin can't wait and we know you can't either. That's why we want you to be among very the first to sign recall petitions against Scott Walker by entering our grassroots contest
Just days before we begin collecting signatures, Scott Walker's fellow Republicans are attempting to add a new requirement that all recall petitions must be notarized.
Scott Walker knows we have the energy and the support needed to recall him now, but rather than letting your voice be heard, he's trying to put up roadblocks to impede the recall process and sully our democracy.
Rest assured: They will NOT stop us.
For 10 months now, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has torn our state apart.
Since taking office in January, Scott Walker has attacked the rights of Wisconsin workers, passed an undemocratic voter ID bill, and done the bidding of the Koch brothers and his deep-pocketed corporate backers at every turn.
Enough is enough.
We released a short video that explains why Scott Walker needs to be recalled and shows the excitement our people-powered movement is generating.
Since the announcement to recall Scott Walker was made, our email box has been flooded with stories from working, middle-class families from across our state who are struggling as a direct result of Gov. Walker's extreme agenda.
After weeks of discussion and positive collaboration with grassroots activists like you, today comes an historic announcement.
In just a few hours, I will go live on The Ed Shultz Show at 9:00 CST to announce that, in collaboration with United Wisconsin, the grassroots effort to recall Scott Walker will begin Nov.15th.
We wanted activists like you to be the first to hear the news because you know what it will take to win this fight.
In today’s highly polarized political environment, the last thing that Wisconsin needs is to have our elections governed by partisan officials. Unfortunately, Gov. Walker’s fellow Republicans are proposing changes that would undo the progress our state has made in removing partisan politics from establishing and enforcing election rules.
