With the Republican National Convention approaching in September and practically on the doorstep of Hudson in the Twin Cities, the community plans to show the state delegation and passing travelers what this city has to offer.
Rep. Kitty Rhoades has been a champion for a new Stillwater Bridge throughout her entire public career. As longtime local advocates for building a new bridge and as western Wisconsin members on the Stakeholder group, we have worked with her extensively and closely, and seen her effectiveness.

A while ago, this paper stopped printing the state news page. We’re told we can find it all on the Internet. While I remain concerned for those without Internet skills and/or access, and the lack of in-depth reporting by our papers, I did some research on our representatives.
A letter last week cited Rep. Rhoades’s rhetoric as an example of fiscal restraint. That’s certainly the image she spins for herself, but, ever since her appointment to oversee the budget, there has been a rare showing of bipartisan agreement that the budgets have been terrible.
Most college graduates celebrate earning their degree by updating their resumes. Bob Hughes took on another task: Collecting the hundreds of signatures needed to get his name on the ballot for Wisconsin Assembly.
There was a letter in last week’s edition of the Star-Observer critical of Kitty Rhoades’ voting record not being representative of people’s needs. Kitty’s votes in my opinion are a sign of sanity in our crazy government that continues to pile up debt on the local, state and federal levels.
I always take pleasure in attending the St. Croix County Fair, and this year was no exception. In an election year, I especially enjoy reading the political material from our area candidates. I was puzzled, however, to read that Rep. Kitty Rhoades defines herself as the only candidate with a record “representing our values in the Wisconsin State Assembly.”
While Wisconsin schools “burn,” State Rep. Kitty Rhoades fiddles. School districts all over the state are slowly going out of business, and Kitty Rhoades refuses to even bring funding reform to the floor for discussion.
