    The US Senate: How Do We Win?

    On June 5th, Grassroots North Shore presents Kathleen Dunn interviewing the four top-polling Democratic candidates who hope to oust the worst Senator in Wisconsin's history. Her astute questioning will help us make an informed voting choice. Join us online at 7 pm.

    WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? One of these four candidates - Mandela Barnes, Sarah Godlewski, Alex Lasry, or Tom Nelson - can tip the Senate, save democracy, and send Ron Johnson....somewhere else.

    Mandela Barnes

    Sarah Godlewski

    Alex Lasry

    Tom Nelson

    Kathleen Dunn's radio show aired from 2006 to 2017. NPR said of her that "Dunn and her producers strove to be as timely as possible when choosing topics and guests. The immediacy of the show attracted many loyal listeners who sought in-depth discussions that go beyond the headlines" We are honored to have her working with us on this project.

    THEN MEET THESE 4 CANDIDATES IN PERSON ON Sunday, June 12th at Virmond Park in Mequon from 4-6. Ask your own questions, and make an informed decision.  RSVP for Sunday, June 12th here.


    Candidates for Treasurer and Lieutenant Governor, David Bowen, Peng Her, and Sara Rodriguez also will be on hand.

    Voting is every citizen's duty!

    Why do we continue to frame voting as a right?  When I read the Constitution I see that our government serves at the will of its citizens, demonstrated by learning about and voting for our choice of candidates to represent us in federal, state and local governments.  In other words, voting is really one of the duties of citizenship.  It should not be framed as a right.  It is really a duty.  For government to be really representative, all eligible voters need to cast a ballot.  This obligation needs to be made easy — not hard.

    To carry it to the extreme, if no one  is allowed to vote we have a dictatorship — a self serving government of suppression.  I remember my excitement when I cast my first ballot at age 21 for Adlai Stevenson.  To my recollection I have never missed voting.  But then I am Caucasian and no one ever tried to stop me!!
