Letter: Support for Czaja by Vern and Iva Fernholz, Don and Nancy Ritter and Mary Eggebrecht
Mary Czaja is running to represent us in the 35th State Assembly District. We want to thank her for making the effort and taking the time to get on the agenda at our town board meeting to give us the opportunity meet her.
One of the questions asked was what she thought a living wage should be. This is an unfair question, as there are so many variables, such as where one lives, marital status, children, cost of living, etc. She mentioned a doctor may require more, not because it costs more for him to live but because he has expenses such as paying his staff, paying off loans for many years of expensive education, carrying malpractice insurance, etc.
We don’t feel she should be an expert in all fields, as she indicated she wasn’t when asked a question pertaining to mining. Mining may be beneficial to our district and we should not close our minds to such a possibility. Mining would bring many good “living wage” jobs to our district, but should be considered only after our representative has done a comprehensive study asking the help of experts to determine the safety to our environment.
We endorse Mary Czaja to be our next representative in the 35th Assembly District. We would also like to endorse Tom Tiffany to be the next senator for the 12th Senate District of Wisconsin. Tom has been our town supervisor for the past four years and is our current assemblyman. He has done a superb job in both.
Town of Little Rice residents,
Vern and Iva Fernholz, Tomahawk
