Thanks Julie!

Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield owe Julie Lassa a great big THANK YOU for getting us money from the Department of Commerce to offset property tax losses.

Here's a picture of Julie presenting a check to Marshfield Mayor Chris Meyer:

A Message from Russ Feingold

Dear Wisconsin Democrat,

As a Progressive heavily involved in your county party, I don’t have to tell you how important this years election is. At the state level, we have a great opportunity to increase our margins in the State Senate and retake the State Assembly so that our Governor has a legislature more willing to move Wisconsin in the right direction come 2009. In the 8th CD, Congressman Steve Kagen has been a tireless advocate on behalf of his constituents and his reelection this November is going to be vital in our efforts to turn our country around following eight years of the Bush Presidency.

However, I don’t have to tell you how important of a role Wisconsin will play in electing our next President. No other state in the country has been closer these past two Presidential elections than Wisconsin. That’s why it’s up to each and every one of us to do everything we can to ensure Barack Obama wins Wisconsin – and the presidency – come Election Day this November.

I’ve enjoyed working with Senator Obama and I’m proud to support his campaign. With his strong Midwestern roots and his dedication to public service, Senator Obama understands, like we do, the values of hard work, standing up for what’s right, and making our country a better place for us, our children and our grandchildren.

At both the state and federal level, Senator Obama has been able to reach across party lines and work with members from both parties to help move our country in a better direction. From fighting to create jobs, to making health care available and affordable to all Americans; from fighting for our rights and freedoms, to ending the war in Iraq, Senator Obama has the strength and leadership ability to get our country back on track.

It’s not going to be an easy task and I’m going to continue to do everything I can to help him win Wisconsin and the Presidency this year – and if you haven’t already, I hope you will join me.

Thanks again for all that you do.

With high hopes,
