Our 2011 convention is shaping up to be a dynamic event that will pay tribute to the Assembly Democrats and Wisconsin 14, and be the largest gathering of fellow Democrats before the recall elections that take place July 12.
The Kloppenburg campaign is also looking for about 20 volunteers to help compare voter rolls in Waukesha tomorrow- Sunday, April 10- people will be checking one by one and keeping tally. It's slow, tedious, and detail-oriented work.
With all the excitement following last Friday’s announcement that volunteers filed papers to recall the first of the Republican 8 — Sen. Dan Kapanke — please don’t forget that today, April 5, is Election Day.
Below is a schedule of statewide rally events through this weekend. Check back often, we'll be updating regularly.
Less than a month ago, grassroots organizers turned in papers to recall the Republican 8 in the Senate who stood with Scott Walker as he pushed his partisan power grab that stripped thousands of Wisconsinites of the right to collective bargaining.
Want to help Recall the Republican 8? Want to stand up for worker’s rights and stop Governor Walker’s extreme agenda? Want to meet like-minded folks committed to fight for what’s right and move Wisconsin forward? Then it’s time for a road trip!
Here is some information on a great opportunity to get out and help with the grassroots efforts to Recall the Republican 8.
What we witnessed from the Senate Republicans last night was truly heinous. Seven decades of labor peace annihilated in less than five minutes, all to cement Scott Walker's divisive political overreach that has nothing to do with fixing Wisconsin's fiscal problems and everything to do with power-grabbing at the expense of working Wisconsin families. Today the Assembly will take up the so-called "budget repair" bill, stripped of fiscal provisions, that denies hard-working teachers, nurses and corrections workers the right to bargain collectively.

Following is a Statement from Senator Jauch on the Senate Democrats Ongoing Efforts to Protect Worker Rights:
I am doing my job in representing the citizens of northern Wisconsin who have overwhelmingly expressed opposition to Governor Walker's plan to eliminate collective bargaining. Thousands of citizens have contacted my office to oppose Governor Walker's plan and they have asked me to seek a solution. Statewide public opinion polls indicate that over 67% of the public strongly disapprove of his proposal.
