The killing of George Floyd and the shooting of Jacob Blake have sickened all of us. As did the senseless violence and destruction of property that erupted in their aftermath, heaping tragedy on top of tragedy.
We all depend on our police and first responders to protect life and property and we all have a right to express our feelings and demand change through peaceful protest. But riots are not peaceful protest. Riots are riots. And those who harm others or damage property must be held accountable for their actions.
By now you’ve probably heard about my opponent's extreme, hateful views reported in the the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Rice Lake Chronotype, and beyond. So I wanted to reach out to all voters in our district to let you know just where I stand: With you.
I know you. I know my neighbors. My wife and I have raised our children here for 25 years. We know the honor and the respect that you have, and that we share, here in Northern Wisconsin.
Today, in 1787, the Philadelphia delegates signed the newly created Constitution. It has endured to be the longest-lasting constitution in history.
The streets surrounding our beautiful state capitol are named after the signers of the Constitution. If you elect me, as I walk those streets, I'll remember my oath to the families and to the people of the 75th: That we are all created equal, and that we all have a chance for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Today is a great day for America. We the people become united. United we stand!
Wisconsin State Assembly candidate John Ellenson has taken the Fair Maps Pledge to ban partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin and implement an independent, nonpartisan process for drawing legislative district maps.
Rural broadband access is something that touches on key issues for every family: Jobs, Healthcare, Housing, and Education.
Northern Wisconsin is competing with the rest of the world. We need broadband for all of our small businesses to succeed. And it became even more important during the pandemic, with people trying to get work done and keep their businesses running from home.
Join me in celebrating 100 years of women having the right to vote.
The fight for women's suffrage took far too long, from 1848 (the year Wisconsin became a state!) up until the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. We should all be particularly proud that Wisconsin was the very first state to ratify the 19th Amendment on June 10, 1919.
