LETTER: Will redistricting save Knodl? District 24 voters should say no

To Ozaukee Press:

I was sorry to see on my primary ballot that hardworking Deb Andraca, who became my representative in the Assembly two years ago, was not listed. It turns out that the districts were redrawn and I am now in District 24, along with some others in Mequon and everyone in Grafton.

Beginning in January, either Republican Dan Knodl or Democrat Bob Tatterson will represent us and our neighbors.

A little research turned up that Knodl signed a letter sent to then Vice President

Pence asking him to not validate the election on Jan. 6. This was fuel for the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The recently suspended million-dollar tax-funded investigation requested by Trump and approved by Knodl and the other Republicans turned up no election problems in Wisconsin.

Bob Tatterson’s website is a wealth of information about where he stands on issues. Transparency is one. His commonsense values are important to most reasonable people of both parties: sensible gun legislation, a woman’s right to choose, and strong public schools. I’d say he is a moderate Democrat ready to represent the people of District 24.

Knodl has been in office for 14 years according to Ballotpedia. As stuck as the Republican-majority Assembly is with no interest in working together and compromising with Gov. Evers, it’s time to shake up the power that this redistricting was probably meant to reinforce. I think most of us want more respectful politics. Watch the “24 seconds with Bob” videos on bobtatterson.com to get a feel for the man. He’s thoughtful and reasonable, a candidate well prepared through his education and financial knowledge to represent the people in District 24.
