From my email inbox: After three-and-a-half years before the mast at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, I’m moving on. It was one hell of a ride and I’m proud of the work I’ve done, both before- and behind-the scenes.
It was an honor to fight passionately, honestly and with integrity for the values I love [...]
