Citizen Action Driftless Organizing Co-Op Update: A Letter from Organizer, Kristie Tweed.

Dear Friends,

While I love the work that I do with Citizen Action and am so very proud of what we have built together in the Driftless Co-Op the last year and a half, I’m excited to share that I’ve accepted a new challenge that I believe is critical to the success of regaining the majority in our Wisconsin Assembly. I will be the Campaign Manager for Rep. Steve Doyle in the 94th District. In the past, the 94th Assembly seat has been central to keeping Republicans from getting a supermajority. Now that seat could be the key to Democrats gaining a majority.

I’ve completely enjoyed working with the CAW staff, the other organizers around the state and especially the great volunteers and co-op members in the Driftless. Your never ending dedication to climate equity, healthcare and movement politics in Wisconsin is something I will carry with me always. You have  inspired me daily and give me hope for our future!

I have great faith in CAW leadership, staff and members that the amazing work will continue in the Driftless and I plan on staying on as an active member. I want to see our many priorities come to fruition, including the development of a Climate Action Plan at the La Crosse School District, the building of our healthcare team in the Driftless and of course the statewide campaign to pass the BadgerCare Public Option bill.

Thank you so much for your support, hard work and dedication. I hope to see you at a Driftless Co-Op event or meeting soon.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for a potential new organizer to continue this critical organizing in the La Crosse area, contact Citizen Action Deputy Director, Matt Brusky at [email protected].

In Solidarity, Kristie Tweed
