My name is Marcia Steele and I am the Winnebago County chair. The November 2016 election is going to make a big difference in the direction of the state as well as the country. At the center of all of this is Winnebago County. We have races here that will determine the direction in Madison and on the national front the Senate race could be the most contested race in the country. If you would like to be involved we would love to have your help. From greeting at the door to phone calling and knocking on doors- whatever your comfort level is we can use YOU! We welcome your help and friendship. Come to one of our meetings and share with the many like-minded people in your community. I look forward to seeing you!
Marcia Steele, Winnebago County Chair.

A Message from Chair Marcia Steele
Last February we launched “The Real Bricks” fundraiser to raise funds to keep our office at 480 N. Main Street in Oshkosh open beyond the November election. Thanks to sixty one donors this fund continues to grow. We’ve raised enough money to cover the rental expenses for 2016 and the first month of next year. Our goal is to bank enough by December 31st of 2016.
Each dollar you give guarantees that the office will stay open. Our office enhances our work and gives us a competitive edge. It will allow us to increase our voter and volunteer base, host Gallery Walks, monthly community forums, Party meetings and so much more.
An efficient, effective, vibrant office doesn’t come free. So I am asking, please for your donation. Be a brick and help us keep our doors open! Use our Act Blue page listed below, or write a check, made payable to Winnebago County Democratic Party and drop it off at the office, or mail your donation to 480 N. Main Street, Oshkosh, WI 54901. Thank you!
