Dane Dems, AFSCME 171, PD, and over 100 individuals Sign on

Posted September 15th, 2011 @ 7:28 AM by

We just got done writing this letter at 4:00 on Tuesday, less than 48 hours later, we have major support from 20 organizations and over 100 individuals. Dane Dems, AFSCME 171, Progressive Dane and many others joined yesterday with Madison Urban Ministry, union workers, United for Funding and CRANES. Its moving so fast I haven’t had time to do some things I would normally do like facebook event, etc, that is coming! Meanwhile, if you want to add your name, just email me at brendakonkel AT gmail.com and I’ll add you. I honestly haven’t seen this kind of response to a local organizing effort in a very long time – people feel pretty strongly about this one. Also, note, this letter mentions more than a vehicle registration fee – it’s a package of ideas. Anyways, check out the list of supporters at the moment!
