Wisconsin

2017 for WI COS Patriots

As always feel free to call 414-750-0327 or email me joanne.laufenberg@cosaction.com with questions?
Joanne Laufenberg - State Director

Next up...various listening sessions have been occurring back in your districts.  If you need help finding them just call their offices at the capitol and ask them where to register for e-updates.  Many are listed on the legis.wisconsin.gov web site...

Hello to our favorite Wisconsin patriots!

The Convention of States Wisconsin team is working hard to arrange at least five constituent face-to-face meetings with Wisconsin legislators and organize COS town halls in target districts (i.e. uncommitted/winnable senators and assembly leaders). 

We are looking for phone callers, videographers, and constituents willing to meet legislators in their districts. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll get you an assignment that fits your expectations and schedule. 

As I’ve been saying, “It’s now or 2019” to get the Convention of States application introduced and passed. If you have any helpful tips or intel, please pass it on to us. 

Consider yourselves detectives in this effort. We’re all in it together and can get Wisconsin in the game. Most of the legislators care about their constituents’ opinions. 

Check out this link as your resource for building relationships with them and their staffers, and get signed up to receive electronic updates. Listening sessions are often communicated in these. 

I received a perplexing report from our Coalitions Director of his speaking with many legislators who “have not been hearing from their constituents about Convention of States. These individuals must either be confused or deceptive but let’s render this a widely acknowledged absurd statement henceforth, agreed?

See opportunities below to meet the COS Wisconsin team and catch your representative's attention in public.

For Liberty and Truth,

Joanne Laufenberg

The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

Join our team as a District Captain!

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Wisconsin state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Get involved today by reaching out to your state legislators. Don't know what to say?

Download talking points here.

If you'd like a Convention of States leader to attend a meeting with you and your legislator, contact your WI Legislative Liaison.

Polite Plea to Chris Kapenga Needed Right Now!

kapenga2square.jpg

It's Go Time! 

1.  Everyone please call Senator Chris Kapenga's office (800-863-8883 & 608-266-9174).  Thank him for "becoming the WI article v expert" and politely ask him to "introduce our cosaction.com application along with his Balanced Budget Amendment". 

2. Mail a note politely repeating yourself (with your contact info and address of residence listed on your letter, in case the envelope is lost or tossed):
Mailing Address:
Senator Chris Kapenga P.O. Box 7882, Madison, 53707-7882

3. Plan a trip to Madison on February 7th.  Do what you can and BE NICE.
PLEASE NO SWEARING OR RUDENESS.  WE'LL CATCH MORE FLIES WITH HONEY.
Details for #3 to follow.

4. Ask others to do the same.

If you haven't made your specific coscaucus.com application support clear to your own legislators, you can look them up on this page by entering your address in the upper right hand corner:   http://maps.legis.wisconsin.gov/.

Phone calls and physical mail are regarded more highly than emails; so http://lc.legis.wisconsin.gov/media/1041/citizen_contact_legislator.pdf explains how to engage with the legislative process with P.O. Boxes for specific groups of assemblyman, etc.
