Walker Denies A Voice To 56,000 Dane County Citizens

The question is why hasn't Scott Walker and his administration of cronies taken even the first step in calling for a special election to fill former Representative Joe Parisi's seat in the 48th Assembly District.

As Representative Pocan points out, with all these important things being discussed, it's only adding insult to injury to deny these people any representation in state government as he works to strip them of all their other rights.

  1. It shouldn't even be left up to the Governor to decide that.

    It should either be left up to a caucus of precinct committee people within the district of the former elected official's political party (Democratic). Here in Indiana they have 30 days from the date of vacancy.


    There should be a statutory requirement that the Governor must declare an election shall be held within so many days from the vacancy occurrence.
