WI Supreme Court candidate, Judge Lisa Neubauer, coming to Green Lake, on Saturday, Feb. 23

Typically, an election to fill a vacancy on the Wisconsin Supreme Court is an under-the-radar event. This year, however, the upcoming April 2 election is different because it will shape the court’s direction for years to come. Currently, conservatives dominate. If Appeals Court Chief Judge Lisa Neubauer wins on April 2, it will create a more balanced court. We, and the other members of the 4-County Coalition (Adams, Marquette, and Waushara) have invited Judge Neubauer to a meet and greet on Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Goose Blind, Green Lake. Judge Neubauer is expected to arrive at the Goose Blind between 4 and 4:45 p.m. This event is open to the public. While officially, the election is non-partisan, Judge Neubauer has drawn considerable support from liberals and progressives, while her opponent, Judge Brian Hagedorn, has appealed to conservatives.

Call both your State Senator (Luther Olsen) and State Representative (Joan Ballweg) and demand that they support and co-sponsor the forthcoming legislation to be introduced by Democrats, but that they make this issue a top priority for this legislative session. Make sure it is at the top of their “to do” list for 2019. Keep reading …
