Start Contacting Governor Walker Campaign Contributors

February 17, 2011

It is time that we make contact with the campaign donors of Governor Scott Walker and let them know what we think of their support of a man without a college degree, who is now stripping state and public workers of their collective bargaining rights.

To get this started I have several businesses to contact to ger the effort underway.   With your help this list will grow. 

Perhaps we can gather more 800 numbers, weblinks, and emails and start contacting these businesses and let them know why we will boycott them unless they take a stand against Walker. 
 
Here is a start:

Metcalfe Sentry Foods

Madison
726 Midvale Blvd.
Madison, WI 53705
(608) 238-7612
Fax: (608) 236-2055
Email: 
Here’s the correct email address for Metcalfe Sentry at Hilldale

    Thank you for pulling together this list of names! Our family is very concerned about what’s happening in our state government right now, and we fear what will happen to the schools as a result. Please continue to share names of other contributors so that we will know where to NOT spend our hard-earned money. We are not rich, so we cannot afford to contribute to political campaigns. However, we little guys could perhaps exert a little impact on those business owners.

    I agree with Angela whole-heartedly! Those businesses who contributed would surely redeem themselves, in my eyes, if they would use their monetary influence to denounce what Walker is doing. Could you please share that information as well on your blog if any company is brave enough to do that?

    Sources? Actual Amounts? Sources? You are not credible without sources. HOW MUCH DID THEY SPEND ON THE CAMPAIGN?

    Here’s the correct email address for Metcalfe Sentry at Hilldale
    hilldale@shopmetcalfes.com

    The one on Cottage Grove Rd is not owned by them, and the owner assured me, after I emailed him in error, that he has not contributed to Walker’s campaign.

    I sent a note to the first Sentry email address listed above and received a reply from the owner of the Cottage Grove Rd Sentry which is not owned by the Metcalfes. The owner assured me he has not contributed to the Walker campaign. Unless you know for a fact this isn’t true, you might want to remove the poor guys email address from your website.

    A. U. W. Prof is correct, “Many companies donate to both sides in a major campaign.” They do so to have influence. It’s time for them to speak up and use that influence to ask Governor Walker to stop his attack on public employees, or risk losing our business.

    I understand the role that money plays in politics. But that means when corporations are donating 10s of thousands of dollars to a specific person, they need to take responsibility and also speak up when they don’t agree with the things they are doing. I will gladly buy Johnsonville Brats, Sargento Cheese, SC Johnson products, Miller products as soon as their public relations personnel make a public announcement that they do not support Gov. Walker’s attempt to remove state workers rights to collective bargaining. If you look at these corporations, many donations are $10,ooo per management person. This is buying a politician.

    Prof,

    I suggest you start a blog and post it.

    For the rest of Wisconsin we will hold those accountable who thought putting a man with a mere high school degree into the Governor’s office a wise idea.

    Many companies donate to both sides in a major campaign.
    I’d like to see the same list for Tom Barrett, perhaps with
    amounts for comparison.
