Letter to the Editor | Vote Congressman James Sensenbrenner on Tuesday, Aug. 14 | By Jim Geldrich

August 6, 2018 – Washington Co., WI – Primary election day is Tuesday, August 14, and few people are aware some of our incumbents face a primary challenge, one of them being our Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner.

Congressman Sensenbrenner is truly a servant of the people of his district, and over the years has surrounded himself with selfless staff people both in Wisconsin and Washington DC who have served the needs of the district.

While constituents of congressional districts in other states never see or hear from their congressman, that has never been the case with Congressman Sensenbrenner, nor will it ever be in the future.

I would also submit that few if any congressmen in the country stay as connected with their districts and as accessible as Congressman Sensenbrenner has.

From walking in hundreds of parades over the years, to attending church picnics, village picnics, county fairs, pancake breakfasts, brat fries, corn roasts, etc., his 30 year record of allegiance to his district is absolutely unparalleled.


In 2017, Congressman Sensenbrenner held a staggering 115 town hall meetings, which was by far the most of any of the 435 congressmen (second most was 61), and he has done so for many years.


If you have attended his town hall meetings, you know he allows for all viewpoints to be presented in a respectful manner.


While some elected officials backslide and become big government proponents, Congressman Sensenbrenner has never wavered from his staunch conservative ideology in Washington DC.


That is exactly the kind of leadership we have come to expect in the 5th district, and which has led to several successful re-elections.


Please join me in supporting Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner in the August 14 primary.


Jim Geldreich, Chairman

Washington County Republican Party
