Kathleen FalkWe are very pleased to announce that Kathleen Falk, former Dane County Executive, is going to be the guest speaker at our Annual Fall Dinner, Silent Auction and now Scott Walker Recall Pep Rally.

Kathleen served for 14 years as Dane County Executive and has a legacy of environmental protection, senior care, criminal justice reforms and combating poverty.

She has been vocal in explaining why we need to recall Gov. Walker stating, “He has turned the state upside down. He has pitted family members against family members, neighbor against neighbor.”

We invite you to join us at this exciting event which will help us raise funds to keep pushing Democratic values and get Democratic candidates elected.  We have much work to do between now and the 2012 Presidential Election, including the recall of Scott Walker.

The dinner will be held on Friday, November 11, 2011 at Jakum’s Hall (2601 N. 15th Street in Sheboygan).  Tickets will be $20 per person.  The evening will begin with a “social hour” at 5pm, followed by dinner at 6:30pm and our guest speaker, Kathleen Falk at 7pm.

Dinner will be $20 per person.  For tickets please call Cynthia Devine at 467-3285.
