LA CROSSE WI, NOVEMBER 6, 2017 – The La Crosse Chapter of Our Wisconsin Revolution is holding the first candidate forum open to the public on Monday, November 6th, 2017 from 6-8 pm at the Brick House (228 5th Ave S) in La Crosse, WI.
All declared candidates have been invited to attend. The forum allows for McCabe to further express his vision for the future of Wisconsin and the need to return to public service.
“The list of problems facing Wisconsin is long. No matter what problem is at the top of your list, I’m guessing you are frustrated by how our government is dealing with that problem. The root cause of that frustration is the poisoned political culture that dooms us to a government and economy that work great for the rich and powerful at everyone else’s expense. Concern for the common good has fallen out of fashion. Genuine public service has given way to a lot of back scratching, nest feathering and ladder climbing,” McCabe cited as one of the reasons for his candidacy.
“Our state and our country are in trouble. This is no time for timid. This is no time for same old same old. There has to be clarity of vision. We can’t be bashful about standing for things like living wages for every worker, health care for all, debt-free education, high-speed Internet to every doorstep, and a clean energy economy. And we can’t bury our heads in the sand about how Wisconsin’s reputation for clean, open and honest government has been trashed. We all have to take responsibility for cleaning up the mess.”
Mike has worked for decades as an independent watchdog exposing the legal bribery of elected officials. He called out both Democrats and Republicans whenever he saw wrongdoing or ethical misconduct. He challenged both Democrats and Republicans to change their ways. His life’s work has involved putting principle over party to try to get government working for all people and not just a privileged few. He is running for governor in the same way for the same reason.
