Dear Fellow Progressives:
I love Wisconsin. That makes sense: I am a sixth-generation Wisconsinite. My family has been here since the 1800s. There is not a corner of this state where I don’t have family.
I am most inspired by Wisconsin’s progressive history, as exemplified by my hero, Fighting Bob La Follette. I believe that Fighting Bob’s political philosophy applies to our present day more than ever: that if you want change, you must send a fighter to a fight. Bob said, “Men must be aggressive for what is right if government is to be saved from men who are aggressive for what is wrong.”
This is why I am running for Assembly. Over the last four years, Governor Walker and Assembly Republicans have been very aggressive in enacting their agenda, and it has harmed our great state. Governor Walker’s way is the wrong way. The Governor’s agenda has decreased the size of the middle class and increased income inequality.
Using the legal training I gained at the University of Wisconsin Law School and the experience I garnered as a legislative staffer for U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, I promise to zealously defend the progressive tradition that defines our great state’s history. I promise to fight Governor Walker, and the Assembly Republicans, from dismantling the gains we have fought for decades to achieve.
My top 3 priorities if elected will be to:
1) Stop Governor Walker’s agenda
2) Rebuild the middle class in southwest Wisconsin
3) Get big money out of Wisconsin politics
Stand with Fighting Pat. Vote Pat Bomhack in the Democratic primary on August 12!
