And In This Corner.....
“And In This Corner...”
Russ Otten, RPSC Chair
Fellow RPSC Members and Freedom Fighters, with just 10 days until Primary Tuesday, August 9, I am excited to announce key events leading up to that day and beyond!
First, there will be a 9th District Senate Debate at 6:30PM next Thursday, August 4, at the Sheboygan Area Lutheran High School Atrium. Voices for Values and Turning Point Action are co-sponsoring the event. We expect a packed house. So, please consider using the Register button on this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/9th-senate-district-primary-debate-tickets-391644327727. Voices for Values is a recently organized movement aiming to engage young people in political activism in the Sheboygan County area and spear-headed by Nate TenBroeke. Great work, Nate!
Second, please join us in walking in the Sheboygan Brat Days Parade at 9:00AM next Saturday, August 6! Nearly 90 of us had a fantastic time in the 4th of July Parade! We made a huge impact on those who watched as we stretched nearly 2 blocks with our flags and signs, our candidates, our flyers, and, of course, our candy! The Brat Days Parade is huge! The parade route has shortened and is shown when you register. Please sign up today by tapping on this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sheboygan-brat-days-parade-saturday-august-6-2022-tickets-387539941397. Final details of where to gather will be sent next week!
Third, there will be a Meet & Greet with gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch on Tuesday, August 2, at 1:00 PM.
Fourth, mark your calendars for the first annual Freedom Fest on Saturday, August 27, from 4:00-7:00PM at Plymouth City Park. This event, formerly the Corn Roast, has taken a youthful turn, with planned activities for all ages. The menu has expanded to include brats, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, and your favorite salad or dessert to pass. We expect a large turnout! So, please consider volunteering. We will be sending out more details with an opportunity to register and volunteer! Stay tuned!
Fifth, HOWSE Round 3 was attended by a lively crowd at Braveheart Pub on July 18. Attached (Download PDF HERE) are the extensive notes which includes a graph of our "watchdogs" for the County Board, Sheboygan Area School Board, and Sheboygan Common Council, along with where and when they meet. Please consider joining this unofficial group of Freedom Fighters that is solely focused on How to Win Spring Elections! Winning starts right here in Sheboygan County, one seat and one issue at a time.
Sixth, due to popular demand, "2000 Mules" will be shown at the HQ on Tuesday, August 2, and Thursday, August 11. Check the website for details. This movie is changing the minds of millions of Americans each week! I encourage you to take a friend to see 2 hours of the most incredible footage you will ever see. This really happened right in our own state! Thanks, Paul, for leading the charge on this!
Finally, God is moving in a mighty way! Stay in prayer for our communities, state, and nation. Nothing is impossible for Him! But He expects us to be vigilant and active. Life is a full-contact sport. When family and friends sit on the sideline and hope things get better, embrace the fight! This is our time to be used for His purposes!
God bless you all,
