The Assault on Democracy in Wisconsin in 2015 - Looking Beyond the Ruins

Wednesday - December 23, 2015

Dear Friends,

If you have followed what has happened in Wisconsin during 2015, you know it has been a difficult year, to say the least. You also know that Common Cause in Wisconsin has been in the forefront of the opposition to Governor Scott Walker and the Republican legislative leaders – Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) – and their obedient, hyper-partisan minions as they have shamelessly destroyed numerous state "good government" institutions and checks on political corruption, transparency, and accountability to the voters and taxpayers of Wisconsin.

This unprecedented devastation is encapsulated in this opinion-editorial we wrote and which was published recently in the Wisconsin Gazette.

But while bowed, we are certainly not broken; in fact, we are more inspired and determined than ever to reclaim our state from this hijacking.

CC/WI does an online "ask" for your financial support only at this time of year in order not to irritate you with constant, year-round pleas of support.

If you value our work and are able to help support us so that we can continue to be pro-active and effective, please consider making a year-end contribution to CC/WI. We would be very grateful to have your support! Here is how you can do so.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
from all of us at Common Cause in Wisconsin!
