Urging Kenosha Residents to Vote for Wirch on August 16th – Patch

Standard

On February 17, 2011 we woke up to learn that school was canceled due to teachers calling in to protest in Madison. We had been following everything about the Budget Repair Bill closely and were planning on taking a trip to protest on the weekend.

But after realizing my daughter had no school, it only took a few minutes to talk my husband into using one of his saved up vacation days. We bundled up (not realizing it was going to be gorgeous that day), packed a bag and headed to Madtown.

A couple of friends were already there and they had us meet them in Senator Bob Wirch’s office. We were helping prepare some fliers as my daughter stared in amazement at the crowd from the window. We were questioning where Senator Wirch was but no one seemed to know, or would say. Then we listened to the roll call on the loud speaker piped throughout the Capital. With an annoyed voice, it was finally clear, the Dems were not present.

Soon after, we headed off for lunch and heard that the brave Senators risked their jobs and headed to Illinois to avoid a quorum and stop the vote on the assaulting Budget Repair Bill which most citizens knew little to nothing about. We applauded and for the first time, I was truly proud of a real life politician.

I always have hope to be a better person. That being said - I can be vulgar, negative and even a little bitchy at times. I say what I mean and my filter is often dysfunctional. With me, what you see is what you get. I have strong opinions and am quick to speak my mind. This can cause problems from time to time but I do not ever intend to hurt or offend anyone. With that - be warned. I do hope you enjoy my site. Thanks for visiting and have a swell day.
