Jill Stein Campaign Swings Through Wisconsin
September 14, 2012 in Presidential Campaign
After walking the picket lines in Chicago with striking teachers this week, Jill Stein is spending two days campaigning in Wisconsin before heading to New York for the one year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Friday evening Stein stops in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for a meet & greet fundraiser at Becket’s Restaurant on the Fox River. Former Deputy Mayor and Green Party activist Tony Palmeri will introduce Jill Stein, followed by casual conversation. The event is open to the public and donations are encouraged.
Saturday Jill Stein will be speaking at Fighting Bob Fest, an annual Chautauqua featuring progressive speakers, networking opportunities, and entertainment. The Fest carries on the tradition of Robert “Fighting Bob” La Follette by providing a forum for progressive ideas on issues facing Wisconsin and the nation. This year along with Jill Stein features Phil Donahue, Greg Palast, John Nichols, Bill McKibben and others.
Following Fighting Bob Fest, Jill will head to the Willy Street Fair in Madison to spread the word out about the campaign.
To end the night, the campaign staff invites everyone to visit their new headquarters at 122 State Street, Suite 500. The Open House will run from 6-8pm, and Jill will be available to chat with attendees.
