Wis. Assembly candidate questions AFSCME submitting petitions on his behalf
By Kyle Maichle
The Mainitowoc Times Herald Reporter said in its July 16, 2010 edition that a field representative for the union submitted his signatures to the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board before the nominating deadline.
Jason Sidener, the representative who turned in the petitions for Wisniewski, said: "I absolutely believe he is pro-union and pro-public union compared to Bob Ziegelbauer." Sidener feels by helping both the Republican and Democrat candidates in the race furthers their mission to defeat the nine-term incumbent who is an independent. However, Wisniewski called out the union by stating: "it makes no sense on the surface." The Republican candidate further stated: "I feel a little bit that I have been messed with by AFSCME.”
The 25th District represents most of Manitowoc County, located in northeast Wisconsin.
