There was a nice writeup in today's Kenosha News about Ben Bakke, our newest candidate for state Senate District 22.
I know Ben personally, and am thrilled at this opportunity to work with this young man.
He is very likable, easy to talk to and full of hope for a bright future for Kenosha and Burlington.
Ben has taken a strong stand against Healthy Wisconsin, but also has recognized that health care costs are skyrocketing.
There needs to be a better way. Government is not the answer.
There was some concern about a primary for the Republican side of this state Senate race. As of today, Steve Brown of Salem, who had also shown interest on the Republican side, has officially withdrawn his name from this race.
Unless someone else steps forward, this is Ben Bakke's show and he is off with a bang.
Let's rally our support around this young man and get this party started. He is going to need a lot of money, so starting this early is not a bad thing.
Best of luck Ben, we are behind you all the way.
