Letter To The Editor: Response To Barbara Lawton On 1st Assembly District Race

Former Lt Governor Barbara Lawton has submitted a nice endorsement for Democratic challenger Patrick Veeser in the First Assembly District. He's a wonderful guy, she says.
 
What she "forgot" to mention is that, according to his Facebook page, Veeser is the President of a labor union at one of the major (Green Bay) paper mills. Is it too much of a stretch to surmise that Veeser, in the past, might have been in a position to funnel union money into the political campaign bankroll of the rejected Doyle/Lawton administration?
 
That's just a thought; but is there really any non-union voter out there that wants to elect a union president to our assembly to negotiate pay raises, perks, and working guarantees with our unionized state employees? Who will be there to protect the interests of the taxpayers, when union people are on both sides of the bargaining table? Isn't that what pretty much put our state as run by Doyle/Lawton into billions in deficits? Isn't that what swept reform Gov Walker into power? And isn't that why Walker's successful swift fiscal actions to balance our state budget were endorsed once again by our electorate in the Recall?
 
Rep Bies will never be mis-identified as Robert Redford. Nor will his oratory remind anyone of Churchill's.  But he has respect for our nickels, and he has common sense. And most importantly, he is a stauch supporter of the Scott Walker agenda.
 
If anyone thinks electing a union president to the assembly will help us balance the state budget, or encourage new business to relocate to Wisconsin, or prevent new taxes, vote for Veeser.
 
Otherwise, let's do the right thing.
 
Tom Felhofer,
Union
