U.S. Senator Ron Johnson and U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson will conduct a public town hall meeting at the Grafton High School auditorium on Saturday September 22nd, from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M.
Senator Johnson will address the America’s present economic and political dilemma, the Romney/Ryan campaign and his own vision of the future.
Former Governor Thompson will discuss in detail his plans for pulling the nation out of its current threatening condition and back to long-term prosperity.
Both men will welcome discussion on matters of interest to members of the audience.
Senator Johnson moved to Oshkosh in 1979 where he and his brother-in-law embarked on a dream to build a small manufacturing company. For the next 31 years he successfully devoted himself to developing that business.
However, he became increasingly convinced that his experience in the private sector would enable him to help put America back on the road to recovery. He successfully sought a position in the U.S. Senate and today serves on such influential committees as Budget, Appropriations, Homeland Security, Governmental Affairs and the Special Committee on Aging. Senator Johnson and his family are long-term Oshkosh residents.
Governor Thompson, well known in the State as simply “Tommy,” holds a law degree from the University of Wisconsin and served in the Wisconsin National Guard for six years and the U.S. Army Reserve for four years. He gained a seat in the State Assembly in 1966 and later held several leadership positions. He became Wisconsin’s Governor in 1987 and is well known for his Workers Rights, Badger Care and School Choice programs.
In 2001 President George Busch asked him to serve as the Secretary of Health and Human Services. He is now a partner in a Washington legal firm. As a candidate for Senator, he brings to the race a long record of experience particularly relevant to the problems now plaguing the country.
Kurt Stammer, President of the Citizens Accountability Board, called the event, ”a rare opportunity for Ozaukee County citizens to gain a direct understanding of the views of the candidate and the Senator, two recognized leaders on the Wisconsin political scene.” The C.A.B. and the Republican Party of Wisconsin are sponsoring the meeting.
