Record Numbers Attend 8th District Caucus & Debate Resolutions
We had a fantastic turnout at our Eighth District Caucus this past Saturday in Shawano. What an impressive showing by the Brown County Delegation, not only in terms of attendance (36) but in performance as well.
Congratulations to our two 8th District Certificate Award winners, Bernice "Bunny" Burris for her Leadership Consulting over the past several years and Dave Nelson for his 19 years as 8th District Treasurer. We had two "Ladder of Liberty Award" winners, Victoria Sobeck for 2019 and Todd O'Dell for 2020. We will formerly recognize these individuals before our membership at our Lincoln Reagan dinner this Fall.
Senator Ron Johnson and Congressman Mike Gallagher's messages on the importance of winning elections at all levels resonated given our plans for the future in Brown County. Our own Eighth District Chairwoman, Kelly Ruh delivered a passionate vision for the future while tackling the divisiveness that can occur when we lose focus and place blame. We closed the Caucus debating resolutions submitted by counties making up the 8th. Please find attached links to each of the six resolutions titled below:

Together we have our work cut out to regain the majority in the United States House & Senate as well as the Governorship in Wisconsin. And while they are important, we must remain focused on winning local non-partisan seats at the School Board, Municipal, Village, Township and Judicial level in Brown County! That work is already underway thanks to the forward thinking of our Candidate Committee and Leadership.
Thanks for your time, talent and of course, financial support. Watch our Facebook page for upcoming events in our Legislative led Pints & Politics series. The next event is May 13th at 1951/Rock Garden, 1951 Bond Street in Green Bay. The topic will be Right to Life with Senator Andre Jacque leading the discussion. The movie "Unplanned" will be shown. Also, be watching for your invitation to attend the GOP State Convention, June 26th in the Wisconsin Dells. This years theme is "Defending America." We look forward to seeing you there.
From the Chairman...
