Sat. Dec 7th from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM “Friends of Ken Holdorf for State Assembly” are hosting a supper and auction benefit at Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jenifer Street in Madison. This event calls attention to the need to work together around the state for candidates, for ending gerrymandering and for protecting water.
The 89th District is a gerrymandered 55 mile long strip along Lake Michigan made up of confusing portions of Marinette, Oconto and Brown counties.
The live auction will include photography and photo books produced by social justice photographers James Rowen, Michael Kienitz and Mary Kay Baum.
Holdorf’s priorities are to protect democracy, water, family farms, public education & veteran health. PFAS pollution is a major concern since much fire-fighting foam was manufactured in the 89th. He also helps fight the Back-Forty sulfide mine. More information about the campaign is available at Ken Holdorf for 89th Assembly District Facebook page.
State legislators co-sponsoring the event include Senators Fred Risser and Mark Miller, and Representatives Chris Taylor, Gary Hebl and Jonathan Brostoff. The site’s City Alder Marsha Rummel and County Supervisor Yogesh Chawla are among the forty plus co-sponsors.
Ken Holdorf lives in Marinette with his spouse Michelle Holdorf (a school occupational therapist) and with Michelle’s mother. Ken grew up in farm country and helped at a relative’s farm, has had a 20 year Navy career, helped test water in Flint, Michigan and gained a Masters in sustainability from UW- Parkside.
