Letter: Unique recall is absolutely vital“Are we going to have a recall every time we don’t agree with a vote?” is Sen. Harsdorf’s rhetorical snipe of choice when addressing the current recall efforts.

“Are we going to have a recall every time we don’t agree with a vote?” is Sen. Harsdorf’s rhetorical snipe of choice when addressing the current recall efforts.
I have voted for over 20 years. During this time I have won and lost many votes, but I have never been inclined to support a recall due my representative’s vote.
In this case, I have taken a different position since the stakes are so high. This recall is not about a single vote. It’s about an ideological agenda that is wrong for our community, state and country.
The Walker agenda is part of a larger Republican agenda that guts the middle class and consolidates power and wealth in the hands of a few stake holders.
How can Harsdorf claim to support a growth agenda when the current budget essentially stops green energy jobs, commuter and cargo rail transport, and broadband initiatives in Wisconsin? Why was Harsdorf silent on the phone call taken by Walker from “David Koch?”
Why was she silent about an $80,000 yearly political appointment to an unqualified college dropout?
Why does she support sending public tax dollars to private school voucher programs?
How are any of these actions part of a strategic job growth strategy?
Sheila’s alignment with Walker shows she supports the socioeconomic elite of Wisconsin and not the middle class. Despite her claims, there is nothing about Walker’s plan that supports the middle class.
Our taxes will not go down. Our government will not be more efficient and our “pro” business environment will only support low-wage jobs not living-wage jobs.
Public sector employees did NOT cause the downturn but Harsdorf’s insistence that the middle class pays for the recovery shows she is misguided, misinformed and must be recalled.
