Well, at least I have column fodder


Ruth Page Jones is the third-announced Democratic candidate for the 97th Assembly District. The winner of the September primary will take on (lose to) State Representative Bill Kramer in November.

Ruth Page Jones is known locally as the head of Project ABC, a moribund group that advocated for higher school taxes. She is also head of Wisconsin Alliance for Excellent Schools, a group advocating a 42% increase in state spending. And she was the campaign treasurer for a congressional candidate that paid himself a slary out of campaign funds.

She faces Roger Danielsen, the former school board member who resigned in disgrace before he was recalled, and Steve Schmuki, who lost to Kramer two years ago.

Waukesha Democratic Party Chair Rich Congdon calls State Representative Kramer the “low-hanging fruit” of the county. He’s going to need more than Moe, Larry and Curly to climb that ladder. But at least I have column material whenever I need it.
