PRESS RELEASE: Falk Statements on Primary Elections Results


Kathleen Falk, former Dane County Executive, released the following statements on the results of the Democratic primary. Falk delivered the statements in a speech to supporters at the Edgewater Hotel in Madison.

"I congratulate Tom Barrett on his victory tonight. Tomorrow, I will join Tom and the other candidates in this primary to renew our commitment to taking our government back.
"The next four weeks may be the most important in our state's history. And each one of you has an important role to play.

"Let's join together to restore all those things we love about Wisconsin. Let's make sure that this people's movement continues, and that our voices are heard here in our state and across our nation.

"Tom Barrett will focus on our real needs: jobs and education. Just as you supported me, we must now support him. We must support him with all our energy and enthusiasm. This movement needs the passion of all of you who have worked so long and with such sacrifice to make this recall happen.

"If we all keep working together, in 28 days we get our state back on track.
"Thank you to the leaders and members across the state of WEAC, AFSCME, SEIU, UFCW, Sierra Club, Young Progressives, IBEW Locals 158 and 159, Building and Construction Trades of SC WI, Clean WI Action Fund, Emily's List, AFL-CIO, Voces de la Frontera, and the Women's Campaign Fund. Your values are my values and we will continue our work together.
"And finally, thank you to the countless men and women from all across the state who believed in our cause; and in me. I will not forget your stories, your faces and your voices.
"Thank you very much."
