While most of us want Wisconsin public schools to be a safe environment for our kids to learn, grow, and have the resources they need to succeed, Dan Kelly has aligned himself with the opposite.
A Better Wisconsin Together is calling on our state legislature to celebrate Public Schools Week by supporting Governor Tony Evers’ budget - a budget that will set our public schools up for long-term success.
With his writings and his actions, Dan Kelly has provided us with all the evidence we need to know: he and judicial ethics don’t go together.
Dan Kelly has a long documented history of extremism on abortion and other policy issues that matter to Wisconsinites - and taking special interest money for his campaigns while taking the side of special interests in court.
In 2020, Wisconsinites turned out in record numbers across zip codes and demographics to demand change. This Presidents’ Day, we are celebrating the myriad of changes that President Biden has brought across our local communities in the nearly three years since.
Gov. Evers’ new biennial budget is one that will put more money into middle class pockets, ensure fully funded schools, address mental health needs, lower healthcare costs, support our local communities, nurture a cleaner environment, create family supporting jobs, and further protect our freedom to vote.
Jennifer Dorow’s Extreme Anti-Abortion, Anti-LGBTQ Stances Net Large Contribution from Right-Wing Tennessee Attorney
Jennifer Dorow's extremism in opposing access to abortion and equal rights for LGBTQ couples is opposed by large majorities of Wisconsinites, but right-wing political donors are buying it.
A Better Wisconsin Together Applauds President Biden’s call to ‘finish the job’ in State of the Union Address
In the State of the Union speech tonight, President Joe Biden spoke of the progress made in delivering on an economy that works for all of us under his administration and the work ahead to “finish the job” and deliver on the promise of freedom and prosperity, no matter one’s zip code, race or gender.
Just last month, news outlets broke a shocking voting rights violation in Wisconsin: Bob Spindell, a fraudulent Donald Trump elector in 2020, Republican Party of Wisconsin official, and a current member of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, bragged about MAGA efforts to stop Wisconsinites from voting based on race in the Badger State’s 2022 midterm election.
All three groups (Wisconsin Family Action PAC, Wisconsin Right to Life PAC, Pro-Life Wisconsin PAC) also endorsed Kelly’s failed 2020 campaign for Wisconsin Supreme Court - an election he lost by an overwhelming amount.
Jennifer Dorow Endorses Court Decision Ending Constitutional Right to Abortion Care, Pledges Support of Anti-Abortion Legislative Agenda
In her own words, Jennifer Dorow disclosed her extremism in opposition to abortion care this week, praising the judicial activism by the U.S Supreme Court striking down a constitutional right to abortion care during an appearance on right wing talk radio.
In his 2023 State of the State address, Governor Tony Evers proved what many of us across zip codes, backgrounds, and income levels in Wisconsin already know: the Badger State is in a great position to grow our economy, come together across differences, and set Wisconsin families up to thrive.
On January 22, 1973 our nation’s highest court ruled that our right to have an abortion was protected under the Constitution - a decision that a majority of Americans and Wisconsinites support, even five decades later. Last year, the conservative majority court went against the will of the people and overturned the federal protections of Roe v. Wade.
Jennifer Dorow and Dan Kelly have remained silent and refused to condemn or call for the resignation of Republican appointed Wisconsin Elections Commission member Bob Spindell over comments he made bragging about GOP efforts to target communities of color and suppress their votes in 2022 in Milwaukee.
Every Republican member of the Wisconsin State Assembly voted today to prohibit the people of Wisconsin from having their say on the state’s 1849 abortion ban, opposing an effort by Gov. Evers and Democrats to hold an advisory referendum on repealing the 173 year old law that currently bans abortion in the state.
A Better Wisconsin Together Applauds Governor Evers’ and Legislative Democrats’ Call for Referendum on Abortion Rights
If approved, the measure would put a question on the ballot for the April 2023 election asking voters: “Shall Wisconsin's 1849 abortion law be repealed and the constitutional rights guaranteed under Roe v. Wade be restored?"
Instead of working with Governor Evers on his proposal to deliver tax savings for the middle class and local families, GOP leaders today unveiled a scheme that would provide little or no benefit for working people while delivering a windfall for the wealthiest.
As reported by various news outlets, Spindell sent an email to nearly 2,000 recipients in which he bragged about a reduction in the number of Black and Hispanic voters in Wisconsin’s 2022 midterm election. He framed it as a victory that less people of color cast ballots in the 2022 election than in 2018.
At a recent forum, right-wing Wisconsin Supreme Court hopeful Dan Kelly stood by his opposition to strengthening anti-corruption rules for Wisconsin judges while fellow radical Jennifer Dorow didn’t back down from her criticism of a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down a Texas law that banned consensual same gender relationships.
Every year on January 10, Americans observe National Cut Your Energy Costs Day - a day meant to raise awareness around increasing energy efficiency, saving money, and healing the environment. Thanks to the historic Inflation Reduction Act signed into law by President Biden in 2022, Wisconsinites can more easily do all three of those things.
OP-ED: Two Years After January 6 Insurrection, We Still Need to Work Together to Protect Our Freedoms
Regardless of our race, economic status, or zip code, we all value one of our most basic rights as Americans: the freedom to vote. On January 6, 2021, we saw how fragile that freedom could be as MAGA faction militants sought to overturn our 2020 presidential election.
Early last month, conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates Jennifer Dorow and Dan Kelly voiced their extreme stances on Wisconsin election laws and election oversight, with Dorow going as far as endorsing a right-wing tactic that would bring highly partisan cases to the nonpartisan state Supreme Court’s desk.
On Nov. 8, 2022 Wisconsin voters overwhelmingly endorsed Governor Tony Evers’ agenda for our state. Today, as Gov. Evers and Lieutenant Governor Sara Rodriguez are sworn into office, a new chapter begins in Wisconsin, and it’s time for our state legislature to get on board.
As 2022 comes to a close, we are at the end of a difficult year - yet Wisconsin communities have been as resilient as ever.
OP-ED: Jennifer Dorow Embraces Extremist Who Would Prosecute Doctors and Nurses For Providing Abortion Care
Dorow may be dodging directly and publicly answering questions about her stance on access to abortion care, but her embrace of extremists is a clear sign where she stands.
The Reproductive Health Travel Fund Act would distribute grants to help those in need of an abortion pay for travel, childcare, lodging, and other expenses related to the medical procedure.
On Universal Healthcare Day, A Better Wisconsin Together is calling on our elected leaders to ensure every Wisconsinite has high quality health coverage without going broke.
In the case of Harper v. Moore, currently being argued in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, our freedom to choose our elected leaders in free and fair elections is literally on trial.
In last month’s midterm election, voters in several Wisconsin counties and cities made it known that we want our elected officials to legalize and tax marijuana - with regulations similar to alcohol.
December 2 marks Special Education Day, the anniversary of our nation’s first federal special education bill being signed into law. It’s also a great reminder that our elected leaders have an obligation to ensure our schools’ special education programs have the funding and resources needed to excel.
Gov. Evers has proposed using the surplus to give a 10% middle class tax cut to Wisconsin families, and would provide $600 million in tax relief to hardworking Wisconsinites. The governor’s plan would also cap the copay for insulin at $35, and help with rising costs by putting money right back in our families' pockets.
Jennifer Dorow, Another Pea in the Right Wing MAGA Pod, Announces Run For Wisconsin State Supreme Court
Dorow, who has already labeled herself “conservative” in media interviews will be competing against right-winger Dan Kelly, who was defeated in his 2020 election effort to hold on to the state high court seat to which he was appointed, also by Republican Scott Walker.
