You need to look to your members who all fought for a voice in this Wisconsin recall process. Let the WEAC members decide who you should endorse. Please do not throw our effort to recall Governor Walker away by endorsing a candidate that does not have statewide appeal.

      Friends,

      First and foremost, thank you for signing the petition asking WEAC to retract their endorsement of Kathleen Falk for governor. As the creator of the petition, I feel as though the endorsement was ill-advised and very premature. Moreover, they did not give their Union members an adequate voice. Having a voice is what thousands of us fought for, and sadly, the Union leaders have bypassed that.

      As you know- our work is not done. Simply signing the petition will not do. We need this link and petition shared with friends and family via email, Facebook, Twitter, or any other network you may have. Don't let our efforts to Recall Walker go to waste.

      If you have a website, or write a blog, and would be willing to have a 'widget' up to have people sign on your site, feel free to email me. You can also use that email to ask any questions you may have. You can find the address at the end of this message.

      In solidarity,

      Josh Hanson

      I oppose candidates making specific commitments to SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS! I clarified in my WE THE PEOPLE blog - http://gazettextra.com/weblogs/we-people/2012/feb/15/just-say-no-to-pledges-to-special-interest-groups/. I consider the endorsement dysfunctional and anti-democratic! Here we go...

      Vinehout will 'cross the aisle' to seek solutions. She is the one that can actually win!

      I am a long-time Dane County employee, and I wouldn't vote for Kathleen Falk if she was the ONLY candidate running. She is a polarizing, vindictive politician who brooks no opposition. She is to the liberal tradition of Wisconsin politics what Scott Walker is to the conservative tradition. If she wins in a primary, I won't vote in the general election.

      WEAC would do well to reconsider this endorsement, and allow its members to become involved in the political process.

      You haven't not asked WEAC members who they want to support. We don't even know who is running for sure yet. Additionally, you should NOT be making anyone promise to put collective bargaining rights back into the next budget. It should not have been a budget item to begin with (it was about taking away our rights; it was never about the money), and it shouldn't be put back in with a budget bill. WEAC is playing heavy handed politics right now, and if they don't watch out they are going to lose many moderate voters.
