Linda Flashinski, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Robin Vos, R-Caledonia, in the 63rd Assembly District, sent us the following campaign update:
About 110 people attended a recent fundraiser at the home of 63rd Assembly Candidate Linda Flashinski and her husband, Stan. The cookout/fundraiser was an opportunity for people to meet and mingle, to support the candidate, and to discuss issues. The attendees heard from State Sen. John Lehman, State Rep. Robert Turner and from the candidate. They talked about the need for change in the Assembly to address reform in health care, the economy, energy, the environment, education, and more.
Linda also thanked her supporters for their work in many areas, including the circulating of nomination papers. She noted that she had turned in approximately 900 signatures from both east and west of I-94. “This has been so encouraging to me,” Linda said of the fund-raiser. “We have to keep our focus on the importance of this race for the people of the 63rd Assembly District and Wisconsin if there is to be real action on the issues of our day.”
Linda has been busy at other county-wide events. She was in the Union Grove parade, attended the Kansasville Pancake Breakfast with her husband and even milked a goat in the County Fair competition against her opponent -- and actually won that contest. She has also attended many local fairs, musical events, meetings, and other area festivals.
But it is at doors that Flashinski says she has received the strongest input to drive her issues. “The top state issues I hear are the need for improvement in the economy, health care, jobs, energy policy, and environmental protection. People are the best source of wisdom to direct state policies and they know that we need new vision. It is very rewarding to talk with them.”
