Tonight we’ll meet State Superintendent of Schools candidate Shandowlyon Hendricks, Kathleen from WI Fair Maps Coalition, and our new DPW organizer.

Thursday March 11 – How do we get money out of politics?  Why should the best funded candidate usually be the winner.  Wisconsin has some of the loosest campaign finance laws that allow millions of dollars of dark money to pour in.  Senator Ron Johnson won his seat with the help of last minute infusions of cash from out of state conservative donors.

Thursday, April 8:  Zoom meeting.  Topics are prison and judicial reform.  Wisconsin has some of the highest rates of incarceration of any state, and this is a major drain on our budget. How can we fix this, while keeping our society safe?  We’ll also recap the April 6 Election which included state school superintendent, District 3 Appellate Court Judge, and many local town, village, and school board elections.
