Meet Tricia Zunker @ Milltown Public Library community room
Jan 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Come meet 7th Congressional District candidate Tricia Zunker in the new large community room at Milltown Public Library. Tricia grew up in Marathon County, graduated UW Madison and UCLA Law School. She’s president of the Wausau School Board, a law school professor, a justice on the Ho Chunk Supreme Court, and a single mom of a delightful nine year old boy. She’s an enrolled member of the Ho Chunk Nation, and the daughter and granddaughter of farmers and union workers and a first generation college graduate, so she knows first hand how farmers and workers are struggling. She’s passionate about bringing healthcare and good jobs to this district, while protecting our natural environment.

Cookies and coffee served. Donations appreciated, and yard signs and volunteer opportunities will be available.

Polk County (WI) Democratic Party

#endcitizensunitedIn 2018, *10* über-wealthy donors drown out the voices of more than 327,200,000 Americans.

Yep, a new report out from the Center for Responsive Politics has found that this minuscule group of major donors accounted for 7% of *all* election-related giving in 2018—up from 1% the previous decade.

This is Citizens United coming to bear—and it's robbing us of influence over those we elect.

From climate change to gun violence, and from prescription drug costs to contaminated water—we need to reform our campaign finance laws if we're ever to see change on the issues we care about.

Please—before you head to the polls, find out where your candidates stand on getting money out of politics.

You can read the Center's findings right here:
