A Plan for Rural Wisconsin

Frank Buress understands that the Republican party has forgotten rural Wisconsin because he lives in rural Wisconsin. As such, he is confronted daily with the issues that face the state’s smaller communities. Here is Frank’s Plan for Rural Wisconsin:

IMPOSE TERM LIMITS — No need for professional politicians.

RESTORE HOME RULE — Give power back to local communities; don’t allow out-of-state interests with money to dictate to us.

BROADBAND EXPANSION — Mandate rural priorities. Give us the same technologies available in Madison and Milwaukee.

RESTORE PUBLIC EDUCATION FUNDING — No need for local referenda. Stop draining off funds for private education.

LEGALIZE MEDICAL CANNABIS — End the pain and suffering; join 30 other states that have done this.

EXPAND HEALTH CARE COVERAGE — Accept federal funds to expand Medicare in Wisconsin.

OVERTURN CITIZENS UNITED — End unlimited secret money in politics.
