Poor people have an equal vote to rich people. There are more poor people living in our county than rich people. There is an important vote coming up June 5.
The governor whose policies have been so very bad for poor people has spent the last six months traveling around the country raising millions of dollars from billionaires that don’t live in our county. He raised all that money from those out of state people so that he can have lots of fancy yard signs and lots of TV ads, not so he can help poor people and single mothers live a happier life.
If all the poor people and single moms plan ahead to go vote June 5, even if that means taking the kids along to the voting location, like I have done, then we can vote out this governor and replace him with one that will help poor people live better lives and who will help single moms have an easier time getting on and staying on BadgerCare and FoodShare, which will help our county’s poorer children have lives that are a little happier and healthier.
Go find out today where your voting place is. All you need to vote is some identification that shows where you live. It is every American’s right to vote. Don’t let the rich people take that away from you, too. Join me at the voting booth on June 5 and vote for Tom Barrett for governor and Mahlon Mitchell for lieutenant governor, both of them are Democrats. No one else will know who you voted for because it is a private vote. And remember, in this country it is “one person, one vote”. So if all the poor people vote we will outnumber that handful of rich people that paid for our current governor and we will win back some dignity for our lives and our community which is mostly poor people. Vote for a happier life with Barrett and Mitchell.
Signs and TV ads don’t vote; money doesn’t vote people do. Use your right. Go vote June 5.
