Fellow Democrats, Trump has returned to his ugliest playbook: wielding racism as a political weapon. It’s now up to Democrats to fight back. But don’t listen to the pundits who claim we have to choose between confronting racism or focusing on the kitchen-table issues...

Polk County (WI) Democratic Party

One of the people representing WI on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is an Eau Claire City Councilman who grew up in Polk County on the Community Homestead Farm. You can trust he and others are working to make the DNC reflective of the beliefs of average Democratic Party members, young people, and others.I'm happy to be in San Francisco at the Democratic National Committee meeting fighting to make sure the Climate Crisis is front and center in the 2020 Presidential race!

As one of seven DNC Members elected from Wisconsin to the National Democratic Party, I am honored to have the opportunity to vote this weekend on a Resolution that would make sure that one of the Democratic Presidential debates is focused on the issues of climate change. It is too important of an issue not to have its own focus and to hear solutions from Presidential candidates that actually match the severity of the challenge we face. Climate change causes sever weather events like flooding, hurricanes and wildfires which cost our country billions. It impacts our water quality and causes algae blooms and fish kills. It causes more incidents of lymes disease and vector borne illnesses that put people's lives in danger. And it pushes people from their homes and jobs while taxing our nations already crumbling infrastructure. It has racial, socioeconomic, environmental and national security implications that demand our leadership and action.

I have heard from those impacted across our state and nation saying that this needs to be a priority form whomever become our next President, that we need to act for the sake of our country and our world, and it is because of your advocacy and my own conviction that I will be voting YES for a Democratic Presidential Debate that focuses soley on the Climate Crisis.

FYI, Polk County Board meeting 8/20 has been moved to Unity School at 6pm.

Public comment will probably focus on the 6 month CAFO moratorium (not going to be voted on) and the “We Like Farming” resolution, which will be on the agenda for a vote.
