Wisconsin Dem. Senate Candidate To Appear At Music Event In Siren

Friday, June 10th, 2011 at 7:01 am

The Democratic parties of Polk and Burnett counties are announcing a District 10–wide rally and musical event featuring a slate of bands and prominent politicians including guest speaker Shelly Moore, who is challenging incumbent Sheila Harsdorf in the upcoming special election for the District 10 senate seat.

Titled “District 10 Rally and Music Jam,” the rally is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th, at Crooked Lake Park in the Village of Siren. Master of ceremonies for the event will be former State Senator Pat Kreitlow, who is running for the 7th U.S. Congressional seat now held by Republican Sean Duffy.

Other featured speakers will include State Senator Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) and Assemblyman Nick Milroy (D-South Range), both of whom have voiced opposition to recent budget and voter ID initiatives supported by Governor Scott Walker.

Bands scheduled to perform include Fifty Fifty (Osceola), Star Prairie Jam (Star Prairie), Peace Sisters (Center City, Minn.), and the North Star Minstrels (Siren/Frederic). Other musical groups are pending.

Moore announced her candidacy on May 3rd after a voter petition drive qualified District 10 for a recall election expected to take place on July 12th. Recall elections also are pending in several other of the state’s senate districts.

The District 10 event is scheduled to begin at 3:00 pm with live musical entertainment. The highlighted program of speakers will begin at 5:00 pm followed by live music until 9:00 pm.

Siren is located in Burnett County near the northern edge of the 10th senate district, which also encompasses areas in Polk, St. Croix, Pierce and Dunn counties in northwestern Wisconsin.
