It Happens Every Spring – Opportunities for Wisconsin Voters to Hit a Home Run

From the Desk of WFA President Julaine Appling:

One my very favorite springtime movies is “It Happens Every Spring,” with Ray Milland playing a scientist turned baseball pitcher—with a special secret potion that makes his pitches unhittable.  The title, of course, refers to the spring ritual of the opening of baseball season. Every spring baseball fans eagerly anticipate the home opener of their favorite teams. I confess to marking off the days until the Brewers open at Miller Park.
VOTE ON APRIL 2

VOTE ON APRIL 2

But it’s not just familiar movies and opening days that mark spring in Wisconsin. One spring ritual we observe is coming up next week—and unfortunately, if we are not careful, it’s going to become less important than the Brewers’ opening day—and that’s our spring nonpartisan general election.  Frankly, it should be a circled event on your calendar—highlighted and starred so that you don’t miss it, any more than you would miss Brewer’s opening day if you are a baseball fan.  We ought to all be fans of our Republican form of government that rests squarely on regular and systematic elections.

This year our spring nonpartisan election is next Tuesday, April 2.  Actually, early voting for this election is underway now. If you are going to be out of town next Tuesday or for any reason want to vote early, just go to your municipal clerk’s office and ask for a ballot between now and the close of business in your clerk’s office this Friday, March 29.  Whether you vote on Election Day or vote early in person or by absentee ballot, make sure you participate in this event that happens every spring.
Across Wisconsin everyone will be voting for two statewide candidates.  This year we have a ten-year term on our state Supreme Court on the ballot, along with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  The candidates for the Supreme Court race are incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack and challenger Ed Fallone.   The candidates for State Superintendent of Public Instruction are incumbent Tony Evers and challenger Don Pridemore.
Unbiased, educational information on these candidates and races is available on Wisconsin Family Council’s Voter Information Publication.  You can access this publication online at voteyourvalueswi.org.  That’s voteyourvalueswi.org.  Or you can call us at  888-378-7395 to get a copy mailed to you.  We have also sent copies of this publication to nearly 3000 churches; so you might want to check with your pastor if you haven’t seen copies in the bulletin or on a literature table.
To give you some idea of what’s included in this publication we have the judicial and legal experience for the two supreme court candidates, as well as links to their web sites and major endorsements for each candidate.  For example, some of the endorsements for Ed Fallone are former US Senator Russ Feingold, WEAC, and Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Pat Roggensack’s endorsements include Milwaukee Police Association, Wisconsin Right To Life, and Wisconsin Family Action PAC.
For the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Wisconsin Family Council sent the two candidates a survey.  Tony Evers did not respond to our survey; Don Pridemore did.  A sampling of Candidate Pridemore’s responses include that he supports geographically expanding the school choice or voucher and he opposes increased regulation of home schooling.  All of this information and more is available on the Voter Information Publication.
But these two races aren’t all that will be on your ballot.  You’ll see races for school board, city council, town and village boards, municipal judges, district court judges and maybe even a referendum.  You can find out what is on your ballot by calling your municipal clerk or by going online to myvote.wi.gov. That’s myvote.wi.gov. Or you can call us at  888-378-7395 and we can find that information for you.
Just as you would invite someone to watch a movie with you or go to the baseball game with you, why not make some calls to your friends and family and make sure they too are voting in this very important election.
Yes, it happens every spring.  Every spring on some TV channel the movie “It Happens Every Spring” is shown, the first pitch for the opening of baseball is thrown, and Wisconsin voters have the awesome opportunity and responsibility of voting in an election for candidates who will represent them until a future spring. Make Spring Election Day a red-letter day on your calendar.
