a lot of it is loose and or crispy. it is not a whole lot of square feet, about 100 out of about 150 sq ft overall. but i would really like it to be a couple days work.

Russ Feingold’s Progressives United Endorses Democratic Congressional Candidate Kelly Westlund

press release from the candidate.

ASHLAND, WI - Progressives United officially announced their endorsement of Democratic Congressional candidate Kelly Westlund. Westlund is challenging Rep. Sean Duffy in the Wisconsin 7th Congressional District.

“I am tremendously honored to have the endorsement of Progressives United,” said Westlund. “I am proud to stand with Wisconsin’s Senator Russ Feingold in the fight for our progressive values and against the corporate influence over our democracy.”

“Kelly Westlund has shown time and time again that she stands up for hard working people in Wisconsin," said Cole Leystra, Executive Director of Progressives United. "She stands in solidarity with workers, knows that money is not speech, and will stand up to corporate influence in campaigns. Progressives United is proud to endorse Kelly Westlund for United States Congress."

Kelly has been an outspoken advocate for increasing the minimum wage and for expanding opportunity so that anyone can succeed based on talent and merit, not their family net worth or their ability to exploit tax loopholes. Kelly supports a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United because corporations are not people.

Sean Duffy refuses to support raising the minimum wage to a living wage for working people, and then he complains that he struggles to get by on his salary of $174,000 a year.

Westlund served on the Ashland City Council from 2011-2014. Westlund is a small business owner, operating a consulting firm that partners with local farms, small businesses, local governments, and civic organizations to work on economic and community development projects. Westlund previously served as executive director for the Alliance for Sustainability and was an adjunct professor of sustainable community development at her alma mater, Northland College.

Westlund is a graduate of Leadership Wisconsin, a statewide leadership development program, and Emerge Wisconsin, an organization that trains Democratic women to run for public office in Wisconsin. Westlund grew up in a military family. She moved to Ashland 13 years ago and lives with her husband Caleb.

more on how you can support du'er kelly westlund here http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025567049

ugh. i get so many begging emails i cant stand it.

is this you?
have you tuned out the begs?
let me tell you why this is the one you should support.
and first of all let me say that voting is NOT ENOUGH!!!
howard dean say even voting in every election only gets you a C in democracy.
if you want an A, you have to do more. much more
.
to my friends who give their dialing fingers and their shoe leather, i give a B+. except those that totally lose themselves in a campaign. those folks i give an A+.

but sometimes what it really takes is cold, hard, cash.
when a good progressive candidate is up against the bottomless pockets of the koch brothers, and the unadulterated slime that is kkkarl rove, we cannot send them into the arena with empty pockets.
du'er kelly westlund deserve our backing, our arming.

shoe leather can win. you certainly cant win without it.
but candidates need paid media. and they need good lit to drop. and they need events.
if you have not given to any of those beggars yet, and you aspire to be more than a C student in democracy, here is a chance to make an actual difference.
kelly westlund is squeezing dollars till the eagle screams. every dollar makes a difference.
she has 30% name recognition, with zero paid media.

as you know, 30% does not win elections.
there is a 10 pt preference for a woman candidate in her district.
her voters are mary burke's voters.
if kelly wins, scott walker loses.
his criminal cabal might even be nailed to the wall for what they have done and will do to the state of wisconsin.

all the issues that we all care about, the environment, union rights, healthcare for all, a safety net that is the heart of a functioning society. they are all issues on the table in wisconsin.
and just one more thing, lake superior hangs in the balance. these lakes are all connected, you may recall.
do you want mountain top mining in the lake superior water shed? i dont. i drink from lake michigan, as do the millions of people who live in chicago and the burbs.

so, please, if you have given nothing so far, support this fundraiser. the ticket price of $50 is not that much to many of you. (you dont have to plan to come, either. just buy a ticket. give it away.)
extra support can make a true difference.

what grade do you think you have earned in democracy this year?
voting is not enough.
step up to the plate.
(and come have fun at my farm.)
