Dear Editor,

Don Vruwink is well known and respected by his constituents in Wisconsin’s 43rd district. As a result of the redrawn legislative maps, he is now running in the 33rd district. Many residents of the 33rd  have already had the opportunity to meet Don, as he has personally knocked on over 7,000 doors.

Don spent 42 years as a teacher and coach. He believes that public schools are one of Wisconsin’s most valuable assets, and he is committed to supporting all levels of Wisconsin’s public education.

His other priorities include: Expanded rural high-speed Internet, increased rural EMS funding, safe schools, fair taxes for small businesses, affordable healthcare, and the right of all workers to a living wage.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking to Don, and I am convinced that he is the best choice for the 33rd district. Regardless of your political views, you can expect Don to treat you with respect and dignity. He understands that divisiveness in politics will never solve any problems.

I encourage you to find out more about Don by visiting his website at, and to join me in voting for Don Vruwink on November 8.
