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.

Gerrymandering: Why dysfunction in Congress could be here to stay


Why dysfunction in Congress could be here to stay. abc news

The recent dearth of competitive seats, however, doesn’t only influence the size of the majority: It also influences the character of the elected officials who make up that majority. Competitive districts often produce politicians who feel incentivized to compromise.

How Leonard Leo’s project to reshape US judiciary got its start in Wisconsin

The conservative strategist and dark money organizer has worked to place ideologically sympathetic judges at state level and all the way up to the US supreme court

In July 2015, Wisconsin’s supreme court shielded 

Governor Scott Walker, then a rising Republican 

star with aspirations to the presidency, from a criminal 


The court’s conservative majority halted the investigation 

into what prosecutors suspected were campaign finance 

violations. One of the deciding votes was cast by Justice 

David Prosser, a conservative who had won re-election a 

few years earlier in a heavily contested race. ...
