Local Democratic candidates committed to working in Madison

To the editor:

These are dark times over the political landscape. Airwaves and mail boxes are littered with attack ads with no substance and paid for by people and groups with no interest whatsoever in the Northwoods.

Merlin Van Buren and Susan Sommer are people who want to commit their effort full-time to represent the people of the Northwoods. I have great respect for business owners like their opponents Rob Swearingen and Tom Tiffany. However, if they have businesses in Rhinelander, will they be running their businesses or representing us in Madison?

The public perception of legislators is at an all time low, in part due to the fact that they don't apparently "show up" to work. We have experienced what got done. Nothing. Please vote.

Robert Wojnowski, Rhinelander

We believe that Rob Swearingen will be doing what is right. He has a wife and dedicated employees who will take care of the business. At least he won't leave the state when things get tough.
