Cap Times: Rebecca Kemble for Madison District 18

Published: March 28, 2015

Written by: Rebecca Kemble 

Last fall when I made the decision to run for alder of District 18, it was not one I took lightly.

Cap Times : Our endorsements for City Council

Written By: Cap Times Editorial Staff

The Madison City Council needs some new blood. While a number of fine incumbents — we have been particularly impressed with the work of Ledell Zellers (District 2), Shiva Bidar-Sielaff (5), Marsha Rummel (6), Paul Skidmore (9) and David Ahrens (15) — will be re-elected without opposition, the April 7 ballot includes several contests for open seats and several more where incumbents face able challengers. Our endorsements this year are made with an eye toward bringing fresh ideas, greater diversity and progressive values to the council.

Guardian: Wisconsin progressives size up political landscape after union defeats

“We had this mass uprising, three weeks of people coming from all over the state and occupying the state capitol building”

-Rebecca Kemble

Earlier this month, Rebecca was mentioned in an article by the Guardian. It's a good article looking at the progressive, pro-worker activism landscape after the signing of so-called 'right-to-work' in Wisconsin, so while her quotes are near the end of the article, please read through its entirety. It's inspiring to see the world take notice of progressive organizing done here at home!
