Walk the Walk for Falk

Scott Walker’s billionaire backers are making sure he has millions to spend on slick ads to cover up his record of tearing our state apart and making us dead last in new jobs.

But he will never have what we have, which is the kind of energy that can gather up almost a million signatures on recall petitions and knock on doors in every community across our state.

He will never have the commitment it takes to walk the walk when it comes to reclaiming our state.

Kathleen Falk has that kind of commitment, and so do you.

That’s why – with attack ads filling the airwaves – we hope you will join us in walking the walk for Falk by helping us get out the vote for the May 8 primary.

Falk has consistently stood up for workers’ rights and has worked shoulder-to-shoulder with AFSCME members to solve tough problems.

That’s why we were proud to endorse her, and why we are asking you to join us in making her the Democratic candidate who will take down Walker on June 5.

You can find out when, where and how to help right here.

We certainly aren’t alone on Falk’s bandwagon against the billionaires. Our union brothers and sisters from public and private sector are with us, as are women’s groups, along with advocates for children, senior citizens and a clean environment.

But AFSCME members have a special role to play in finishing this job, and we know you know how to do it.

Kathleen Falk knows how to bring people together and get our economy moving again. Under her leadership, Dane County created more than 20,000 new jobs.

That’s the kind of leadership we need now.

Please help us counter the billionaire ad blitz by walking the walk for Kathleen Falk.

In solidarity,

Paulette Feld, President
AFSCME Council 24
