andy-jorgensenMADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) announced today that Rep. Andy Jorgensen (D-Milton) will not run for re-election to the Assembly this fall.

peter_barca“It has been a pleasure to serve alongside Rep. Jorgensen for the past eight years, including four years where he served as Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus," said Barca in his statement. "Rep. Jorgensen has shown tremendous leadership in our caucus and played a crucial role in advancing our Democratic agenda focused on creating jobs, strengthening public education and improving economic opportunity for all our citizens."

Perhaps Rep. Jorgensen’s greatest accomplishment was when he led two separate successful efforts to save SeniorCare. By collecting petition signatures, working with stakeholders and raising awareness on this issue, Rep. Jorgensen helped preserve a life-saving Wisconsin program that also saves participants and taxpayers tens of millions of dollars every year.

“As those who have met Rep. Jorgensen at town halls, community events, grocery stores and countless other places throughout the 43rd District can attest, he has always been an accessible, passionate and dedicated legislator who truly cares about his constituents and our state," said Barca. "We wish him and his family the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

will-petersGREEN BAY - As you may know, with the support of my neighbors I have gotten my name on the Spring 2016 General Election ballot. I am running for Brown County Board of Supervisors, District 8. I am running because I care deeply about the quality of life in my community and want to do my part to improve it. This will not be possible without your support.

Brown County deserves someone who will wear his community pride on his shoulder. Brown County deserves someone who will treat his constituents and colleagues with dignity and respect. Brown County deserves someone who not only focuses on the needs of his constituents, but Brown County as a whole. I am that someone. However, in order to effectively reach my constituents I need your support.

Brown County does not deserve someone who spits on his fellow representatives, makes racist and sexist remarks. Brown County does not deserve someone who picks and chooses who he represents. Brown County does not deserve someone who holds grudges and builds walls. Guy Zima has not lived up to his role as Brown County Supervisor and has been more of an embarrassment than an effective leader.

I need your help to beat Guy Zima. I need your help to reach my neighbors to inform them of what I can do for them and our County. You can help me by donating $25, $50, or up to the individual contribution limit of $500. If you are able to donate please mail a check to Citizens for William Peters 233 N. Ashland Ave. Green Bay, WI 54303 or click here.

With your help we will make Brown County a more vibrant and healthy place to live!!

Thank you for your support,

Will Peters

ron-johnsonMADISON - In response to Sen. Johnson's comments this morning admitting that his obstructionist opposition to filling the Supreme Court vacancy is rooted in partisan politics, Russ for Wisconsin Communications Director Michael Tyler issued the following statement:

“Sadly, Sen. Johnson is confirming that he’s only willing to do his job if it helps Washington Republicans. Sen. Johnson was hired by the people of Wisconsin, not Mitch McConnell and not the Koch Brothers. He should do the job he was hired for and consider any Supreme Court nominee, whether it’s from a Republican President or a Democrat. But if he won't do his job, at least he's being honest that his interest lies with Washington Republicans rather than with the people of Wisconsin."
