Josh Silver gets it. He understands what is going on in our country today and best of all, he offers solutions to our ills.
Josh Silver was one of the primary speakers at the Fair Maps Summit in Marshfield in November. The summit was sponsored by a coalition of allied groups setting aside their own agendas to discuss a common objective: dismantling gerrymandered voting districts and the implementation of nonpartisan, independent districting commissions. Ultimately, it is about ensuring fair and equal representation.
Silver, who is the director Represent Us, and advocacy group based in Massachusetts, said he came to Wisconsin and Marshfield was he was impressed with the efforts of allied groups in Wisconsin to tackle the gerrymandering issue. Several members of the Green Lake County Dems & Friends organization attended the event in Marshfield.
