Milw North Branch of RPMC hosting a booth at Juneteenth Day

This outreach by the Milwaukee North Branch is an extension of Gov. Walker’s stated desire to reach across the political isle. We will show Milwaukee residents that we do care and want them on our side in the fight to improve both Milwaukee and the State of Wisconsin.

An opportunity to join the Republican Party, our power washer giveaway, campaign literature along with free candy will be available at our booth. But more importantly we will listen to concerns of Milwaukee’s north side residents.

Juneteenth is an annual observance on June 19 to remember when Union soldiers enforced the Emancipation Proclamation and freed all remaining slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865. Our booth is located at the old Ponderosa / Stella’s Restaurant about a block north of Center Street on MLK Drive. Our booth will be open from 10am – 3pm.

Who Is Ron Johnson, Anyway?

Before 2010, Ron Johnson had no intention of entering politics. A successful businessman with an accounting background, he had spent some 30 years building a custom plastics extrusion business in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The national debate raging over Obamacare woke him up. He became especially incensed over a speech in which Obama vilified physicians, specifically surgeons, alleging that they often performed unnecessary procedures for profit.

Johnson had quite a different experience with surgeons. A daughter was born with a severe heart defect — so serious that the newborn was flown to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee, where a pediatric heart surgeon was roused in the wee hours to perform emergency surgery on the tiny heart. He re-routed the blood through the atria and ventricles. In effect, the girl’s heart was fixed to work backwards, but it worked.

The senator is today very proud of the young lady — she works as a nurse at the very hospital where her life was saved.

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.
