WI Senate District 24 - Incumbent Republican Patrick Testin - Challenger Collin McNamara (Democrat) - Gerrymander in Practice


Out of SIXTEEN!

Last time I checked, only Senate District 24 had a challenger to the incumbent.  That's out of sixteen State Senators up for election in 2024. Is this another definition of "gerrymandered".

Your district is so safe no one will even bother to run against you.

Of the three assembly districts within Senate 24 only Assembly District 71, which contains Stevens Point, is represented by a Democrat - Katrina Shankland.


Collin McNamara has his work cut out for him!


Senate District 24 covers parts of seven counties ... Adams, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Portage, Waushara, Wood.

Move over Jon Meacham, Jonathan Haidt ... make room for Frans de Waal

 

Implies that one-third of us have some tendencies two-thirds of us question!


 


 A most astute observer...Being both more systematically brutal than chimps and more empathic than bonobos, we are by far the most bipolar ape. Our societies are never completely peaceful, never completely competitive, never ruled by sheer selfishness, and never perfectly moral. — Frans de Waal(Primatologist)

Trump - 'A Life Threat'

 

'A life threat' is so much more clear than 'existential threat' ... life threat might be extended to be more complete ... 'A threat to life as we know it' underlines the point.

Do we think we will always be on the safe side of the threat?

What some of us are really afraid about is concentration of power in a single irresistible authority.  As imperfect as we may think our constitution may be its imperfection was always acknowledged.  There is unfortunately no stepping back to an instant rerun if we realize a mistake was made.

There is a need to accommodate change.  Checks and balances are the brakes on the process so that the moment is not capricious nor reactionary.

What's your vision for Wisconsin?

 Lot's of ideas ...


Invest in community level post-highschool education!

Keep places like Richland Center open and even add more or other kinds of State level support for education ... vocational and academic.  The state support for education has declined and declined.

Invest in local libraries and internet connectivity in more communities, again using State dollars.

Invest in rural health care coverage. More paramedic support coupled with local fire department full-time personnel.


Increase Homestead Tax Credit relief. 


... more later ...

WI Senate District 24 ... a little wierd ...Sparta, Tomah, Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point major population centers

Sparta and Tomah are a lot closer to La Crosse than they are to Wisconsin Rapids or Stevens Point.  Where do you think the three WI Assembly District (70,71,72) boundaries are located that divide up Senate District 24?  

The latter two are on the upper eastern end of Senate 24 and Sparta and Tomah at the lower western end.  It looks like you only have one semi-direct route from corner to corner.

Stevens Point is within Assembly District 71 along with ~20 other 'political divisions'.

The map image below shows the layout of 292 wards in the Senate District 24.  It covers parts of seven counties from Adams to Wood.  











The story needs to examine the three Assembly Districts contained within Senate 24.  All Senate Districts have exactly three Assembly Districts contained within them.
