Change needed at state level
I have discovered after far too many years of having Warren Petryk as my representative that he is nothing more than a rubber stamp for the policies of a power-hungry Republican Party.
His vote during the lame-duck sessions reaffirmed this. Petryk’s campaign ads always stated that he was an “independent” voice in the Legislature. I contacted him and asked him to exercise this independence, but I guess you can say anything you want if you are assured re-election through the onerous gerrymandering of districts.
We elected Tony Evers to undo the damage done to our state by eight years of single-party rule. By protecting their failed policies by weakening the governor’s powers, Petryk has assured me that the will of the people is secondary to the will of the party.
I can hope that the next election will continue the gains of the Democratic majority and maybe even bring hope to the 93rd Assembly District for true representation.
