Citizen Action in the News

Citizen Action of Wisconsin North Side Rising Organizing Co-op was in the news this week challenging the latest huge rate hike proposed by the for-profit utility, We Energies. See an interview with Citizen Action organizer Keviea Guiden on WTMJ TV 4 Milwaukee here.

Citizen Action’s Robert Kraig was on the Earl Ingram Show for the full hour to discuss the GOP’s absurd claim that Governor Evers is seeking to radically change the balance of power in state government. Listen to the full hour Here.

Listen to “Staring at our electoral future” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast

In a potential preview of November, MAGAite Steven Campbell refuses to step down following losing his Green Bay City Council election, even after losing the recount he paid for. Trump has been encouraging his acolytes to seek fraud claims everywhere, laying the groundwork for his future claims of a stolen election in the fall.

We talk about the decision of Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley to step down, setting up another epic Supreme Court election next April that will determine the balance of the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the future of abortion rights and democracy in the Badger State. Also as nomination papers drop, we urge movement progressives to run in state legislative races.

Meanwhile, the bitter fruits of right-rule continued in Wisconsin. We discuss the staggering implications of a new report revealing that nearly 40% of Wisconsin teachers left the profession after 6 years, a direct result of Act 10 and the GOP assault on public education. Meanwhile on the energy front, renewable energy laggard We Energies proposes another outrageous 15% rate hike as Southeast Wisconsin residents protest the increase.

Finally a new MU Law Poll has U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin over 50% and leading Eric Hovde.

Listen to the show.
