Wisconsin needs you.

Our rights and values are under attack by Scott Walker and his rubber-stamps in the legislature. We need your help to stop the erosion of the middle class in Wisconsin.

With your help, we can take back the state Senate and make gains in the Assembly. Together, we can stop Walker's attack on the middle class, drastic cuts to education, and his cuts to health care for women, seniors and people with disabilities.

We need your help to do it. Can you chip in to help these candidates and make it happen?

Thank you for all you do,

Chris Larson, Wisconsin Senate Leader

Dean grew up working on his aunt’s farm in the 1st Senate District and he knows how we can balance our state’s rich agricultural economy with Wisconsin’s droves of tourists who visit our state and support our local economies. Dean worked his way through college at a local manufacturer and knows how important it is to support our workers who create profits for our communities. Now, as a special education teacher for over 20 years, including serving as President of the Bay Lakes United Educators for over 10 years, Dean knows firsthand how important education is for moving Wisconsin forward. Dean’s dedication to his community has run in his family since his father served as Mayor of Appleton. In addition to everything else, Dean is a 20-year veteran of the Army National Guard and a high school football coach. He’s a great candidate for the 1st State Senate District and will make an even better Senator.

Martha Laning’s impressive leadership in her community is commendable and positioned her as the frontrunner for the 9th Senate District. Martha’s MBA in Finance served her well during her work to raise $4.6 million for an intergenerational facility in Plymouth despite the Great Recession. When faced with underfunded schools that lacked a library or playground, Martha organized parents and community members to raise over $160,000 to build a playground and purchase thousands of books for a new library. When Martha discovered that many students did not have access to a good breakfast, Martha worked with a group of parents and the district administration to create a breakfast program for her community school.
