West Allis Branch Mtg on Thu Apr 28

Hey West Allis Republicans,
Don’t forget our monthly meeting on Thursday at the almost-closed West Allis office of the RPMC 1488 S. 84th St.
Meeting time is 7:00 pm.

And don’t forget, it’s BYOC (Bring your own chair)

Kevin M. Soczka, Branch Chairman

Help Re-elect Senator Ron Johnson

Dear Committed Activist,

First I want to thank each of you for all that you did to help with the Spring Election. With your help we were not only able to turn out a historic number of Republican primary voters but also elected Justice Rebecca Bradley to a full term on the Supreme Court.

We now must turn our attention to November and doing everything we can to re-elect Senator Ron Johnson. The stakes could not be higher and it is imperative that we continue to have Ron out in Washington D.C. fighting for the hardworking people of Wisconsin.

The first step in making sure that we re-elect Senator Johnson is getting him on the ballot.
I am asking that each of you collect at least 10 nomination signatures by May 20th. You can access the nomination form and instruction sheet by clicking here.

After collecting those signatures they must be mailed to RPW Headquarters in Madison:
Republican Party of Wisconsin
148 E. Johnson St.
Madison, WI 53713

Starting today, you may begin collecting signatures. This is a huge undertaking and a great opportunity to once again showcase the incredible grassroots infrastructure we have here in our state. I hope I can count on your support to not only meet, but exceed these goals, and help to keep Wisconsin moving forward.

Chairman Brad Courtney

Efficient Government Agencies

A method to cut government spending where bureaucrats will WANT to cut!

It is a well known and quite understandable reaction of any bureau to make sure that the current year’s budget has been spent by the end of the fiscal year, even on unnecessary projects, else they lose it. Personal interest should have every employee watching for any possible waste of the taxpayer’s dollars.

A new budgeting policy for each bureau should be established, where any unspent budgeted funds at the end of the fiscal year shall be equally divided up and paid out to all of the employees in that bureau. Then the lower budget figure, pre-disbursement, would be used for the next fiscal year, with, again, any unspent surplus being distributed to the employees who made the surplus possible.

No money would be saved the first year, but from then on every department would have continuously lowering budgets. Could the cost of running the state be cut in half in three years? I think so. The bottom line would be far more efficient and less costly state services.

“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state.

They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” –Frederick Bastiat


Here Is What You Should Expect From the Wisconsin Primary

Now, all eyes in the GOP nomination circus are turning to the great state of Wisconsin, a state unaccustomed to this sort of attention.

It has rarely been the case that the Wisconsin primary is pivotal — for either party. Yet it is unquestionably viewed as a must-win for the Ted Cruz and Donald Trump campaigns.

Wisconsin is deep purple: nearly every state-wide election is decided on a knife’s edge of less than 5 percentage points. It is also deeply polarized: 45% of the population will vote for an Airedale if the Airedale runs as a Democrat, no matter how reasonable or accomplished the Republican candidate may be.

And the nationally televised antics which accompanied the passage of Scott Walker’s budget-balancing Act 10 legislation and the subsequent recall election provided the paradigm for the unhinged, Leftist fury which has been chasing the Donald Trump road show in recent weeks.
