alex-lasryTravels to Oak Creek, Racine, Waukesha, Madison, Oshkosh, Reiterates Support for Organized Labor


Milwaukee - This week, new polling data from Marquette Law School showed Alex Lasry is gaining significant ground in the Democratic Primary, he also traveled to Racine and Oshkosh, and further demonstrated his strong support of organized labor by visiting Wisconsin’s first unionized Starbucks in Oak Creek.

The Marquette Poll showed Alex’s support continuing to rise, improving to just 3 points behind Mandela Barnes, 19% - 16%, well within the margin of error. This is an improvement from 10 points behind in last month’s Marquette Poll. No other candidate in the race received more than 7% of the vote.

The poll also showed Senator Ron Johnson is viewed unfavorably by 46% of voters, his highest unfavorable rating ever in the Marquette Poll.

“Alex Lasry is rapidly gaining support and has made this primary into a statistical tie,” said Garren Randolph, Alex’s campaign manager. “The more voters hear from Alex, the more support he gains. Wisconsinites want their next U.S. Senator to be someone with a proven record of delivering real results for working families. Alex will win this primary and be the Democratic nominee who beats Ron Johnson this fall.”

Alex Released a Statement on Starbucks Unionization Efforts In Dane County

Milwaukee – On Thursday, Alex Lasry voiced his support for the workers at the three Dane County Starbucks stores that filed for union representation Monday, throwing his support behind local workers fighting to make things better at their workplace.

“Since the very beginning of this campaign, I’ve told folks that I want to bring real change and real results to the people of Wisconsin. Supporting local unionization to make things better for people in the workplace is the perfect way to do that,” said Alex Lasry.

“I’m proud to stand beside these brave workers as they fight for change in their workplace. One step at a time, the Union Strong movement is making real change for workers across the state, and as Wisconsin’s next Senator, I will fight every day to help them.”

Alex has a proven track record of delivering real results for Wisconsinites – whether it’s creating good union jobs, paying a $15-dollar minimum wage, or investing in and helping grow Wisconsin’s economy. Alex led negotiations for a historic project labor agreement that included provisions to hire women and minorities that are often underrepresented among union workers, and he has been a leading voice in advocating for the ongoing unionization movement.

The Lasry campaign is also one of the only campaigns across the country and the only one in Wisconsin that has a unionized campaign staff.

 
Tim Michels “Hopes” His Business Continues to Seek Millions in State Contracts PDF Print E-mail

tim-michels-gov-mjsMichels Corp. of Brownsville has received more than $660 million in payments from the state in the last five years, and GOP candidate wants the good times to continue even if he’s elected Governor.


MADISON - New reporting shows Tim Michels plans to continue his history of unethical business practices by encouraging his family’s construction business to keep seeking millions in state contracts if he’s elected governor. This despite there being a “state law bar[ring] officials from taking actions that benefit them financially,” creating “ethical challenges” for Michels.

Michels entered the Wisconsin GOP primary for governor this week after years of helping run a business with a record of being sued for shady business practices. He plans to run a “largely self-funded” campaign using the fortune he’s amassed from Michels Corp., which once scammed taxpayers by double-charging for a construction job and received millions of dollars in state contracts as Michels and his family donated thousands to former Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s campaigns.

Asked whether his company would continue to seek state contracts if he became governor, Michels said, “I certainly hope so.” In an attempt to tamp down the controversy, Michels has offered up an empty solution that would do nothing to stop a Gov. Michels from sending state tax dollars into his family’s coffers.

In the nasty, crowded GOP primary, Michels’ potential conflict of interest has already become a point of attack for his Republican opponents. A spokeswoman for Kevin Nicholson slammed Michels as part of the “Madison industrial complex.”

“Tim Michels is just another self-serving politician who would put his own business interests above the needs of working Wisconsinites,” said DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy. “Voters deserve to know that their tax dollars won’t go towards filling the next governor’s pockets, and Michels and his fellow Republican candidates for governor can’t deliver that promise.”
