Attn. Racine City residents:
CRG asks the question:
Who will be your State Senator in January of 2013?
Van Wanggaard or John Lehman?
No matter who wins on June 5th, neither of them is “our” Senator anymore. Thanks to redistricting the Senate District #21 now includes Caledonia, Most of Mt. Pleasant and almost all of Kenosha County except for the City of Kenosha. It doesn't include the City of Racine any more.
The city of Racine's new SD#22 will be an “open” seat for those of us in Racine. Sen Bob Wirch who has spent 16 years in office has decided he will move his home into the new district and will be running to represent the people of Kenosha and Racine cities. You might think he would run unopposed..but how many people who actually live in the City of Racine even know a hing about Sen. Bob Wirch?
Not very many. The good news for Racine is that Bob Wirch will have a challenger:
This morning WLIP am 1050 on the Lenny Palmer Show
Pam Stevens has been on the KUSD for the past 9 years where she served 2 years as Board President. Pam is a single Mom, Grandmother, business manager and is very interested in Educational oppurtunites for all children. Ms. Stevens was a supporter of school choice for Racine and would support expanding the program to the KUSD district. Ms Stevens Is also concerned about crime in the KR region, and will work with law enforcement, the DA's office and the judiciary to improve our system.
CRG of Racine has asked Ms. Stevens to explore the extension of 794 into, and through the Cities of Racine and Kenosha. CRG urges you to check her out her facebook page Pam Stevens for Senate, or her web site Pamforwisconsin.org.
Please check her out, either Pam Stevens or Bob Wirch will represent those of us here in the City of Racine.
When things get tough Racine can count on Pam Stevens to stay in Madison and do her job, not run off to Rockford. If Pam is elected Racine can count on her to keep the budget spending under control and not to raise taxes. Racine can depend on Pam Stevens to watch for fraud and abuse of our welfare system. Most importantly when a company wants to bring jobs to Wisconsin, whether its for mining, science, manufacturing or promoting our natural resources from boarder to boarder, Pam Stevens understands the importance of jobs and Wisconsins future. Lower Taxes, smaller Govt. and more individual liberty. At first blush Ms. Stevens looks like someone to watch!
