              Jon Richards 


   Vows to Protect Senior Citizens
    

In a press release Wednesday, July 23, 2014, Candidate Richards wrote...

"...I’m announcing a new proposal for a Senior Citizen Advocate in the Department of Justice.

This new position will work with local district attorneys’ offices across the state to protect seniors from fraud and abuse.

The Senior Citizen Advocate will work with lawmakers to draft legislation to enhance the rights and protections for seniors, because Wisconsin’s senior citizens deserve nothing less."

Richards continued by adding...

" ...our senior citizens, deserve an advocate who will fight for them.

Under my leadership, I’ll do more to ensure that issues specific to seniors are getting addressed, and that seniors in every corner of Wisconsin have an ally in the Department of Justice.

            Senior Freedom Press applauds this bold
                and innovative move by Richards.

Burke Campaign Statement on latest Marquette Law School Poll


MADISON - Following the release of the latest Marquette Law School Poll today, which showed a 46-46 tie

Burke for Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Zepecki released the following statement:

"The new direction and clear plan for growing Wisconsin's economy, creating more good paying jobs and strengthening the middle class offered by former Trek Executive Mary Burke stands in stark contrast to Scott Walker's failures. Under Walker, Wisconsin is 9th out of 10 Midwestern states in job growth and last year was the worst for private sector job creation since the Great Recession.  Wisconsin voters face a clear choice in this election between two very different approaches and it is clear that voters recognize that Walker's top down, trickle down approach that puts big corporations and special interests ahead of hard working Wisconsinites isn't working."

Moyers says the Bush effort to go to war in Iraq began with the tacit permission of the existing media who relied on the misleading information that was intended to deceive Americans.  He said that if there had been better reporting, we might have known the truth about Iraq and probably wouldn't have gone to war...
