Update from Day Nine: Walkerville Re-opens for Business
with a visit from Russ Feingold on Sunday afternoon, July 12th at 5pm
Through wind, rain, and scorching heat Walkerville has weathered the storm and remains open for business again this evening. Local country singer Whitney Mann will sing tonight at 7:30, and tomorrow at 5:00 pm former Senator Russ Feingold will come down and visit Walkerville.
On Tuesday, the Assembly will take on the budget and the Supreme court could rule any day on the current lawsuit filed to challenge the collective bargaining provisions of the recent legislation.
Come on down to Walkerville this week and pitch a tent as we continue to protest the Republican’s extreme agenda. This summer we will continue to work to take back our State Senate back and stop Walker in his tracks.
For six months, Walker and his Republican allies have unilaterally and relentlessly rammed through legislation that blantantly favors corporate interests and puts the wealthy ahead of working families.
Stripped away our rights to bargain collectively
Given 300 million a year in tax cuts to the rich and corporations
Slashed funding for schools, healthcare and seniors
They have given Governor Walker extraordinary power and the ability to ignore the voice of the hard-working people of the state.
Join us and come to see Russ Feingold at Walkerville! Take action! Join the movement!
