Letter to the Editor RTSA

Mark your calendars and vote on Aug. 9, if not before. The primary elections are happening now. Those of us who live in Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District will be thanking Ron Kind this year for the 25 years he has represented us in Washington, D.C. Ron, a Democrat, has served the region and the country well.

The Aug. 9 primary elections offer an opportunity to shape the future; an opportunity to usher in a new era of leadership. We are fortunate to have excellent Democratic candidates running to fill Ron’s shoes in Congress: Deb McGrath, Mark Neumann, Brad Pfaff and Rebecca Cooke. All are excellent.

There is one candidate who sets herself apart. That candidate is Rebecca Cooke. Rebecca represents the future of political leadership. She is focused and intentional in her work to shape our nation for future generations. 

Rebecca was born and raised on a dairy farm in Eau Claire. She understands and embraces hard work and will advocate for the hard-working people of Wisconsin. Rebecca owns a business in Eau Claire (Red’s Mercantile) and has demonstrated her work ethic and commitment to the people of Wisconsin in her work on the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and in her efforts to establish a foundation that supports local women-owned businesses. 

Rebecca is smart, well-educated, well-informed, and will do what it takes to ensure a bright future for the people of Wisconsin and the nation. A vote for Rebecca is a vote for the future. Let’s usher in the next generation of leadership we so badly need in our country.
