Progress for Wisconsin: One election at a time

WISCONSIN - August 10, 2011 -

With voters in two Senate districts voting for change on August 9, the following can be attributed to Mary Bell, a Wisconsin Rapids teacher and president of the Wisconsin Education Association Council:

“The historic recall elections represent a movement to elect leaders who represent Wisconsin values. Across the state, citizens spoke up – and voiced their frustration at the direction this state has been heading under the leadership and extreme agenda of Scott Walker. Wisconsin deserves better – and high turnout across the state sends a loud wake-up call to the Wisconsin Legislature that the public is watching – and is concerned about the need to restore fairness and balance to the Legislature.”

“Flipping two Senate districts clearly indicates progress has been made – and that’s a credit to voters for helping Wisconsin take a strong step forward in the battle to uphold the middle class.”
