Wisconsin court upholds right to representation

Walker-appointed judge slams GOP decision to block special elections


MADISON, WI – Following the court’s decision ordering Gov. Walker to call for special elections in Senate District 1 and Assembly District 42, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:


“I’m glad to see the court uphold the constitutional right for Wisconsin residents to be represented. Gov. Walker is clearly intimidated by the thought of losing more power when voters go to the polls. His refusal to call special elections is depriving thousands of Wisconsin families equal representation in the legislature.”
