From Fox Politics:
The founder of the Fox Valley Initiative, Jim Steineke, believes people need to get involved and informed early in the process. “In the past, most of us have taken a back seat in these primaries as the leadership in both parties chose the candidates they liked. It is time for the people of northeast Wisconsin to take control of the process. We need candidates accountable to the people they represent – and getting involved now is the first step towards that end,” says Steineke.
“Given the current debate over health care reform legislation, rising taxes, and a supposed economic recovery that isn’t reaching the people, we feel that the voters are going to be more involved in the upcoming elections than they ever have been” said Steineke.
So stop out at the SC Grand and learn more about the GOP candidates vying for the People’s seat in the 8th District. Five of the six will be there: Marc Savard, Roger Roth, Reid Ribble, Terri McCormick, and Andy Williams.
