10/24/14 Scott Walker's Club for Millionaires doesn't include you

TV Ad 10/24/14

Scott Walker’s Wisconsin is beginning to look like a private club.


A club where his wealthy donors get what they want and everyone else is left out. Tax cuts for powerful special interests, the largest cuts to public education in the country and secret political donations from a mining company that was then allowed to write legislation that may mean arsenic and lead in our drinking water.

Scott Walker's wealthy donors benefit and middle class Wisconsin families are left out in the cold.

10/25/14

We know it's 2014

Schimel says he would've defended a law banning interracial marriage. and He would make abortion as a crime even for victims of rape and incest.

Wisconsin's Attorney General should protect our rights, but Brad Schimel just wants to take them away.

10/13/14 Scott Walker repeals Equal Pay Act to pay women less

TV ad 10/13/14

Women earn less than men for doing the same work. It's not right.


But Scott Walker repealed Wisconsin's Equal Pay Enforcement Act. Why? Scott Walker's corporate friends lobbied to repeal the Equal Pay law; the same corporate friends that spent $8 million to support Walker and his campaigns. Now it's even easier for corporations to get away with paying women less.

That's how things walk work in Scott Walker's Wisconsin. He gets more. Women get paid less.

8/5/14 Clarke mocks 911 calls

Sheriff Clarke should be focused on the safety of Milwaukee County residents, instead he ran radio ads suggesting those in danger should take the law into their own hands

TV ad 8/5/14

Sheriff David Clarke spent thousands of taxpayer dollars on radio ads telling us that calling 911 and waiting is no longer our best option.

911 emergency responders risk their lives every day to help save ours. Instead of calling trained professionals, Clarke wants us to arm ourselves with guns and aim to shoot to kill.

Clarke also opposes common sense gun safety laws like expanded background checks and limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines.

After the Connecticut school shootings Clarke even suggested getting rid of gun-free school zones.

Call Sheriff David Clarke at 278-4766. Tell him we don't need more gun violence in Milwaukee County.

8/4/14 Clarke mismanages. He's a threat to public safety

RADIO VERSION (60 sec. spot)


Milwaukee County taxpayers give Sheriff David Clark over $70 million a year to keep us safe.

But David Clarke has eliminated crime-fighting programs targeting gangs, drug trafficking and gun violence.

The district attorney says the sheriff department doesn't investigate murders or sexual assaults. In fact, they make only 2% of the violent crime arrests in the county.

Clarke spends millions on excessive overtime like for deputies sitting at the courthouse watching over security guards. Sheriff Clarke uses taxpayer money for radio ads telling us not to call 911.

He even takes federal forfeiture funds to buy flat screen TVs and exercising equipment.

That's where all the money goes.

Call Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke at 414-278-4766. Tell David Clarke to stop putting our safety at risk.

5/17/2013 No to School Vouchers

Support our Wisconsin public schools, say no to vouchers!

Web ad 5/17/2013

In a time of limited resources and budget cuts, we should be supporting our local public schools and not private voucher schools that lack accountability, have lower teacher standards, and lower student achievement.

Statewide expansion of the private school voucher program hurts our public schools by taking away needed state aid, forcing school boards to either raise property taxes or cut student programs. In addition, a lot of the students who take advantage of the voucher program were already enrolled in private schools in their school districts. Why should taxpayers now be forced to pick up the tab for them to attend private schools?

Tell your legislators - Support our Wisconsin public schools, say no to vouchers!
