Richard Brown, candidate for Dane County Treasurer, has requested to meet with DWAG.  We decided to invite him to meet with us at our August 1 meeting from 6:15 to 6:45.  The primary is August 9.

There will be no meeting Monday, July 4th, for obvious reasons. We will meet on the other Mondays in July.  We will meet on those dates at the DeForest Library, as Ginny will be out of town.

Marilyn Townsend, candidate for Dane County judge, has also asked to meet with DWAG at some date in the future.  (Note too that the incumbent Dane County Treasurer, Adam Gallagher, has asked to meet with us sometime in July too.)

We discussed the meeting at Democratic Party HQ with rural and small town Dems recently.  Several DWAG members attended.  It was a good meeting.

John Stanley has requested input from DWAG members as to talking points to counter Hillary Clinton’s candidacy at the Dem Convention in Philadelphia.  John is a delegate and backs Bernie Sanders.

Karen and Marcia attended the energy Fair in Custer, Wisconsin, June 17-19, and reported on it.
