  1. You may be interested to know about an article in the January 16 issue of Time magazine. It is about fracking and then putting the waste water in the ground afterwards. The article said this may have caused earthquakes which Ohio never had before. I would hate to see this happen here in Wisconsin since we have never had earthquakes either. Thanks for looking into this matter. Shirley Butts

    Hi, Kathleen: I met you last night at the Franklin Library and have a favor to ask. Can you please close the loophole that allows people like Joel Kleefisch to vote three times for Assembly bills?

    This is disgusting.

    Thank you.
    I’m still working on getting the word out.

    Hope to see you in Madison on Saturday.

      Thanks for the note, Jane. I’ll pass on your request to Kathleen. You can pick up signs and buttons at the new campaign office 2617 E. Washington Ave. Kathleen will be there before the rally and we have lots of supporters coming from all over the state. It should be a great day! Lisa

    How big of a role will diversifying the job market play a role in your plan to fix the state’s economy?

  4. Andy Rubin says:

    please explain how you voted on the Castle Doctrine Law, and why?

  5. Larry Garske says:

    Hi Kathleen, I sat with you after your presentation last night in Sturgeon Bay. I have to say that for being an Independent I was extremely impressed with you and would not hesitate to vote for you. I hope you are able to really campaign in the bigger cities so they can get to hear you also. I would hate to see your big city competitors continue to ignore the small markets, just focusing on the numbers. You have much to offer big city people as well as small town. Good luck!

    I would like to know how to get a Vinehout yard sign. My address is:
    417 N. 7th St.
    Madison, WI 53704

    If there is a place in Madison to pick one up, I could pick it up. If someone wants to come by and put one in my yard, that is fine too. There aren’t any Vinehout signs in my neighborhood and I would like to have one so she has a presence here. I am not crazy about Falk (even though I live in Madison) and I know others aren’t either. I am voting for Vinehout!

    I just saw that the Madison office is very near my house. I’m going over to get a sign right now!

    Great job at the Stoughton Forum on Sunday. I have a question. I have heard that Wisconsin Act 10 cut taxable income by 22% which would leave us with even less revenue to run the state. Even if Act 10 is repealed, Wisconsin would remain a low income state compared to surrounding states. New York is looking at increasing their minimum wage. What do you think of this idea? It could generate income tax and sales tax revenue.
    Thanks for your consideration.

    Another insight into your push for better schools and more funding for public education. Small towns don’t just need good schools for their children, they need it for the health of the community itself. In Melrose our prime industry is farming, but I am sure our biggest employer is the public school. We produce corn, hogs, dairy and educated children. With changing times, many families commute for their job. Before new families move to Melrose or Mindoro, they want to know about the schools. If the schools are lousy, they will move somewhere else. That is income out of the area and less life in our area. Our population drops. Good schools sustain our population and bring new families to the area.
    I see this in my attempts to recruit trained medical staff to Black River Falls. I have lost several prospects when the schools don’t size up to other communities and wives don’t want to bring the kids or start a family here.
    keep up the good work.

    It is really important that we get Kathleen’s name well-known across the state. People need to hear her factual, common-sense messages and get to know her. Had her campaign been more visible before the recall election primary, I am convinced that she would have been the candidate chosen to oppose Walker. Personally, I only saw ONE ad for her campaign, though I saw many for Kathleen Falk, and even more for Tom Barrett. We need to get her name, face, and message out there!

    • Admin says:


      Thanks for your comment. The best way too get Kathleen’s message out is through the media, unfortunately that costs money. Something the campaign didn’t have enough of in the short timeframe allowed for the recall campaign. We are always taking donations and will continue to spread Kathleen’s ideas through our friends and supporters. It will take all of us talking with our friends, neighbors and relatives to help Kathleen with that task. Hopefully you are on Kathleen’s email list and receive her weekly column. If you aren’t receiving it you can sign up on our Volunteer page. This will allow you to send Kathleen’s infomation on to your friends and help us build a base for the next campaign.

      Thank you for your support!

    Kathleen, you need to keep up the excellent work and broadcast your message even louder. You are truly Wisconsin Governor material. We need representation for this office from someone not in Madison or Milwaukee. You seem to have your finger directly on the pulse of Wisconsinites and I’m afraid we currently have high blood pressure. We need a stable, intelligent, and savvy leader who is not sold out to the highest bidder. A person who can see through the “politics” and quickly think on their feet. And a Dairy Farmer?? Does it get any more Wisconsin than that? Please keep your eyes on the Governor prize because I think you’d be great. After Walker’s term it’s going to be a real mess.

    • Admin says:

      Thanks for the note, Cheryl. We’re working hard to make sure Kathleen continues to be a strong voice for all the people of Wisconsin. If you don’t receive Kathleen’s weekly email column you can sign up on our volunteer page. By talking with your friends and neighbors, you can help spread Kathleen’s voice across the state for 2014.

    Senator vinehout,
    I am writing you with the hopes that you will be participating in our upcoming 2014 gubernatorial election in WI. I truly believe that you are one of the only hopes for a Democratic victory in my beloved home state. I am a husband, a father, a hunter, an angler and a senior business professional for a small firm in WI. I am also a true progressive that embraces our WI traditions (including deer hunting) and am perplexed and frustrated at how so many of my fellow citizens have been duped into voting against their own (and their children’s) best interests.
    I did not intend this to be a long message and I hope it does not turn into one. I wanted give you my early support for the future. The recall was a (expected) disappointment due to the message and an overwhelming funding gap. But on a traditional election stage my confidence grows. I know I live in the part of the state that often times get dismissed by “regular” people. But we are regular people here! Please don’t let this get framed with a sound bite! Just because I am from Dane county does not mean I am I am a “delusional intellectual”. I am a hard working professional that believes in working together in a historically independent and proud state. But in the end… we are all Wisconsinites! AND, after we have worked things out… we can then go have a beer and watch the Packers together!
    Thank you for your time Senator Vinehout. I appreciate any comments or words of support. I frequently write Senator Miller and Assemblymen Hebl.

      Thanks for your support. Kathleen is building a grassroots organization and you can be a part of it. By talking with your friends and neighbors, by sending Kathleen’s weekly newsletter on to someone who doesn’t receive it, by staying engaged and energized and spreading Kathleen’s message, you can be a part of the 2014 campaign – starting right now. Welcome to the team!

    Hi Kathleen – Do you have any resources available for those facing foreclosure when the banks are not willing to work with them?

    Thanks so much!

    I personally think that there should be a Mandatory law, that would require ALL motorcyle driver’s & rider’s to WEAR helmets & proper gear. I am a STRONG supporter.
