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.
