LETTER: GOP primary has alternatives to the entrenched incumbents

To Ozaukee Press:

Voters, there are a lot of choices on your ballot for the Aug. 9 partisan primary election. Two long-term incumbents in gerrymandered districts, U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman (6th Congressional District) and State Rep Robert Brooks (60th Assembly District) have primary opponents with some refreshing, independent positions, including wanting to listen to constituents with different views.

For example, Republican Douglas Mullenix, who is seeking the nomination for Grothman’s seat, has made it a priority of his campaign to advocate for improving mental health care and access to higher education. Republican Samuel Krieg, of Port Washington, is running against Brooks in the primary, and has said he favors term limits for representatives and wants to restore civility in politics.

Democrat Dan Larsen, who will oppose the Republican candidate for the 60th Assembly seat in November, stands for a return to transparent state government, clean air and water, suicide prevention and closing the endless taxpayer-funded investigation into the 2020 presidential election.

Unfortunately, in Wisconsin you can only vote within one political party in a primary. To see “what’s on my ballot,” go to myvote.wi.gov. To see candidate answers to questions, go to Vote411.org or see their priorities on campaign websites.  Our democracy depends on all of us being informed and voting.
