I have to tell you that I am more than a little shocked and disgusted that your chief Wisconsin lobbyist Todd Holschbach is supporting Jim Brey for Assembly. Brey openly opposes the storm water mandate. Video is available at wiseye.org showing him making those statements including comments on the Clean Water Act.

During the campaign I was endorsed by Clean Wisconsin, LCV and Sierra Club but Todd instead supported Brey.

Now he has written a letter to the editor referring to me as an “ultra left extremist”.

With your lobbyist committing such outrages in such a public way can your organization be taken seriously on any of these issues?
Do you have control over your own political agenda?

Albert Einstein said ‘the world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.’ I have to say that I hate the negative advertising and the name bashing that is going on in the local 25th Assembly District.

Don’t be fooled by extremists
Jim Brey must be doing something right. He is being attacked by the ultra-left and the ultra-right. Both extremist groups are most of the reason why Democrats and Republicans fail to work together now at nearly every turn.There was a time in Madison and in D.C. when moderate, compromise-oriented people in both parties solved problems — and yes, actually talked with each other. As extremists on both sides gain a foothold, Republicans and Democrats become more polarized than ever, and we the people are the losers. But the extremists don’t care about this polarization because they just want to be heard; they don’t want solutions. With solutions, the extremists become insignificant.Jim Brey’s record has been misrepresented in letters to the editor of this paper by those supporting all or none, winner-take-all politics. Brey is the candidate who most represents the people of the 25th Assembly District. Don’t be fooled by the extremists. Vote Brey on Tuesday.
Todd Holschbach
 DJean Polster these days, you are a left wing extremist if you are not a republican or if you speak facts instead of rhetoric.
Bernie Starzewski Did I mention he supported Walker’s mining bill too?
