Attention Election Volunteers

There have been many changes in election law that take effect this year. The Sheboygan County Democratic Party will meet to work on getting information on these changes out to voters. Changes in voter registration and required voter ID could make the process confusing and difficult for some voters. We will meet on Saturday February 13th, 2016, at 1:00 pm, at the Sheboygan Labor Hall located at 1104 Wisconsin Avenue in Sheboygan, WI 53081. For more information, contact Mary Jo Stoelb at (920) 627-3122. ...Full Article

Republicans Plan to Decimate Voter Registration Drives

State Senate Could Vote as Early as Tuesday, February 9th

The Republican-controlled State Senate may consider legislation as early as tomorrow, February 9th, that would effectively undermine organized voter registration drives in Wisconsin.

Last Wednesday, on a 3-2 party-line vote, Republicans on the State Senate Elections Committee approved Senate Bill 295, along with an “eleventh-hour” amendment authored by the Committee’s Chair, State Senator Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg). Among other things, SB 295 would allow (some) Wisconsinites to register to vote online, but would eliminate “the authority to appoint and use special registration deputies.”

While we vigorously support online voter registration, we do not support this version or this legislation. The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, and many other good government groups in Wisconsin, oppose Senate Bill 295 in its present form as well.

The GOP proposal allows only those with a Wisconsin drivers license or state-issued ID access to the online system. As a result, those individuals less likely to have those forms of ID (minorities, the elderly, low-income persons, and students) – the very people most likely to be served by special registration deputies (SRDs) – will be left out in the cold, having far fewer options to be able to register to vote. ...Full Article

$22 Million More From Public Schools?

Please contact your elected officials in the WI Assembly and Senate with the latest plan to take $22 million dollars away from public schools. Our WI public schools NEED an INCREASE in FUNDING…NOT a decrease…

“In a stealth maneuver, a last-minute amendment was offered to a technical bill dealing with special needs vouchers, AB 751.  The amendment, clearly not germane to the bill, would change the school funding formula to strip away $22 million in revenue limit authority for those school districts with voucher students. This would be a devastating blow to our neighborhood public schools and the students they serve. Once the truth was revealed about the amendment and its impact, the Assembly Education Committee pulled back the bill on Thursday, but it will likely be resurrected soon.” ...Full Article

Call to Action!

Big news. The Senate cancelled their floor session yesterday because they don’t have the votes on the bills to bring corporate funding into Wisconsin elections for the first time in history or to get rid of the Government Accountability Board (GAB), our elections watchdog agency.

Your calls are working! Thank you.

But Americans for Prosperity, a group run by the Koch brothers, is starting ads this week in many of the Republican senate districts where support for these two bills is in question.

We need to make sure they hear from all of us this week. Let’s prove groups run by out-of-state billionaires can’t drown out the voice of the people. Write or call senators this week to let them know you don’t support getting rid of the GAB (SB 294) or bringing unlimited corporate donations into Wisconsin (SB 292). And please spread the word to your family, neighbors and friends about these important issues.

If three Republican senators refuse to back these bills, they won’t pass.

You will find the contact information below for the senators who are on the fence for these bills or being targeted by the ads from Americans for Prosperity. Please also consider calling your local newspapers and ask them to editorialize against these bills. ...Full Article

Russ Feingold Energizes Democrats at the 2015 Fall Dinner

Former (and future) Sen. Feingold gave a lively, animated speech at the Sheboygan Dems falls dinner this past Saturday night, focusing on the burden of student loan debt, and also touching on job creation and the need to preserve and strengthen Social Security.

He took aim at his opponent’s views on these and other topics, chastising Sen. Ron Johnson for failing to understand how families are stressing out about student loan debt, and for referring to Social Security as a Ponzi scheme.

Feingold also chastised GOP presidential candidates who attack and demean ethnic and religious minorities, many of whom contribute mightily to Wisconsin’s economy.
About Donald Trump’s denigrating of immigrants: “How would you like to be an 8 or 10-year-old Latino child right now, in Sheboygan, hearing the presidential front-runner saying those kinds of things about people from your community?”

About Ben Carson saying he couldn’t support a Muslim president: “Whatever happened to ‘anyone born in this country can grow up to be president?’ Whatever happened to THAT value?”
He also said he was looking forward to this week’s Democratic presidential primary debate, because it will reveal a real contrast to the American public. “We’re gonna have adults up there … you know, people who treat each other with respect.”

Democratic legislators – Of, by, and for the People of Wisconsin

Democratic legislators representing people and communities all over Wisconsin are living up to the spirit of Abraham Lincoln’s vision – “of, by, and for the People.” This stands in stark contrast to Republicans who continue to betray the trust of the people by pursuing an agenda that favors the politically connected, gives away more public resources to their wealthy political supporters, and leaves more of our families and neighbors behind.

Democrats believe that our state has a responsibility to all people, not just the privileged few who use money and power to buy political favor. Here are just some of the actions Democratic legislators are taking for the people:

Senator Erpenbach (Middleton) and Representative Considine (Portage) – Have called for responsible legislative solutions to address a critical safety issue in many communities statewide – the shortage and low morale of corrections officers. Senator Erpenbach and Representative Considine recognize our responsibility to care for those who protect all of us. Paraphrasing their joint press release, “healthy and safe employees make for healthy and safe communities.”[1]

Representatives Kolste (Janesville) and Jorgensen (Milton) – Have introduced a bill (AB304) to protect the people of Wisconsin from having their tax dollars wasted on greed and corruption. ...Full Article
