Bryce Runs For State Senate 21st District

About a month ago, I wrote about my friend, Rand Bryce, and said that we should draft him to run for the 21st Senate District.  Thanks to you, gentle readers, we were able to raise our voice and Randy heeded our call!  From the mailbox today:
Randy Bryce Announces Candidacy for 21st State Senate DistrictRunning to end Political Games, Attacks on Veterans, Job Creation Failures

MADISON – Today, active community member, veteran, and father Randy Bryce announced his candidacy for the 21st State Senate District in Wisconsin. A local ironworker, Randy is running to stop the partisan games, attacks on veterans and job creation failures in Madison. 
“I have always put my community first,” said Bryce, “After the partisan games of the last sessions allowed partisan redistricting, attacks on veterans and a job creation failures, I knew I had to stand up for the community that I love.

“It is time to stop the single-party rule in Madison that jammed through countless pieces of harmful legislation without regard for the impacts on our communities. From making it harder for veterans to obtain compensation when dying from service-caused mesothelioma to the failure to keep up with our neighboring states in job creation, our community deserves better. I am running to give the 21st State Senate District the representation it deserves.

Randy is a born and raised Wisconsinite with deep roots across Southeastern Wisconsin. From serving in the US Army to helping homeless veterans find work to building southeastern Wisconsin monuments like Miller Park, Randy has spent his life giving back to his community. Randy is a Caledonia resident, and, has a 7-year-old son, Ben.
Make no mistakes about it, Bryce has a long road to hoe, contending with a gerrymandered district and the huge spending that will be coming from the corporate special interests.

If there is anyone that is able to represent the people and take on the special interests, it is Bryce.

I congratulate and comment Bryce for his campaign and look forward to supporting him in his campaign.


  1. Good news.

    Appreciate Randy's commitment to collective bargaining. The real "job creators" are consumers with money to spend.

    Although they're national issues, hope Randy can at least criticize the absence of Wall Street CEO prosecutions by the Obama administration. There's a lot of bi-partisan support for that, as well as legalizing marijuana and pulling back from our foreign military occupations.

    IMHO, asking Gov. Walker (and the GOP) why they've made zero progress on bringing thousands of commercial fishing jobs back to Lake Michigan is also a good idea.

  2. Go get em 'stache! Dems should be fighting in every district in every corner of the state.
