Tomorrow the State Senate will take up the 2013-2015 biennial budget rubber-stamped through the State Assembly by Republicans, but there might be a glimmer of hope that some Republican State Senators will actually do the right thing and vote against this horrible budget.
So here’s what you can do – you can contact Republican State Sens. Luther Olsen, Mike Ellis, and Rob Cowles and urge them to do the right thing, and don’t forget to call your own State Senator as well. You can contact your State Senator by calling 1-800-362-9472, and here are the telephone numbers for Sens. Cowles, Ellis, and Olsen:
Sen. Rob Cowles: 608-266-0484
Sen. Mike Ellis: 608-266-0718
Sen. Luther Olsen: 608-266-0751
If you’re not a phone person, you can also email Sens. Olsen, Cowles, and Ellis – all you have to do is copy and paste the email template below into your email, and then copy and paste one of the email addresses listed below (an email will probably be more effective if it’s sent to the Senators individually).
I call on you to do the right thing and vote no on the 2013-2015 biennial budget on June 20, 2013. Wisconsin’s residents deserve better than what has been proposed. It is time that you reach across the aisle and work with your Democratic colleagues to fashion a budget that is fair to all the citizens.
I call on you to be a real leader – work to help the People, not outside special interests, and vote against the 2013-2015 biennial budget.
It goes without saying that you can personalize the message to your liking, but what’s important is that we all contact these three Republican State Senators and urge them to do the right thing.
