WHAT TO SAY:
Hello my name is ____________. As one of your constituents, I have become increasingly concerned with the direction of our state. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill which is now being considered by the Wisconsin State Legislature would strip our public employees of their rights to negotiate pension and health benefits. This bill is a threat to the public workers of Wisconsin. Thank you for continuing to stand with your fellow Democrats and refusing to return to the state until Governor Walker and the Senate Republicans agree to negotiate the terms of the bill. Our public employees, including teachers, health care professionals and social workers deserve our support, especially in this time of great need for many Wisconsinites.
