Lori Compas to launch Wisconsin Business Alliance on 9/27

Lori Compas is known to many as the woman who had the courage to take on Republican incumbent Scott Fitzgerald in Wisconsin Senate District 13. But before Compas became a grassroots hero, she was (and still is) a small business owner. On Thursday, 9/27/12, she will combine her passion for progressive politics and business with the launch of a new organization, the Wisconsin Business Alliance.

Lori Compas explained her rationale for the formation of her new venture via email:

“I’m often asked whether I’ll run for office again. The simple answer is that I just don’t know. I enjoyed being a candidate, but for now I’m working full-time on launching a new organization, the Wisconsin Business Alliance…

I think the best way I can help the causes we believe in — particularly education, health care reform, government transparency, and conservation — is to make a strong business case for them.”

The Wisconsin Business Alliance will launch in three locations on Thursday, 9/27:

9:00 – 9:30 am
Stowell Associates
4485 North Oakland Avenue
Noon – 12:30 pm
The original YMCA building
400 West Milwaukee Street
2:30 – 3:00 pm
Planet Propaganda
605 Williamson (in Machinery Row at Williamson and John Nolen Drive)
Details about the Wisconsin Business Alliance will also become available on the website on Thursday (wisconsinbusinessalliance.com). Meanwhile, check out the organization on Facebook and Twitter. Knowing Lori Compas, this is going to be good.

    1. I’ve thought of the WBA as a union for liberal/progressive businesspeople.

      There needs to be a 50-state strategy for these types of organizations!

  1. Lori, We are so proud to have been part of your campagin. Wish you the best in this new venture. Cheri and Dave Lemke, Deerfield

  2. Good Luck. If you want to win Wisconsin, however, you need to win West Wisconsin. We try to fight that battle in Eau Claire and have trouble gathering resources. People in and around district seven consider Milwaukee/Madison as a separate state unresponsive to their interests. Ask Katherine Vinehout about this, and try to understand how to approach all of Wisconsin.
