Bulebosh & Clarke Endorsed in Letter to the Editor
John Binder of Plymouth wrote a wonderful letter about Nanette’s candidacy and that of of 26th Assembly District candidate Rebecca Clarke. Yes, both would be strong advocates for public education in Wisconsin. Thank you for the positive comments, John.
Sheboygan Press Weighs in on 27th Assembly District Contest
We’re grateful to the Sheboygan Press for covering the important 27th Assembly District race between challenger Nanette Bulebosh and the incumbent, Tyler Vorpagel. “Reporter Josh Lintereur did a good job summarizing my long conversation with him,” said Nanette. “We spoke of a lot of different things, and then he had to choose which ones to highlight, and he chose our views on tax policy, and the roads.
“The contrast between my opponent and me are very clear. I will stand up for working men and women, public education, and the environment, and I will look at all available options to finally do something about the poor condition of our roads.”
Both Nanette and her opponent, Tyler Vorpagel, attended a the Meet the Candidates Forum in Manitowoc on October 18th, along with other candidates from other races!
Here’s what Nanette wrote about it on her Nanette for Assembly Facebook page:
I had a fantastic time at the Manitowoc County Lakes Association Meet the Candidates forum Tuesday night. I was one of four challengers (three Democrats and one independent) pointing out the problems in current environmental policies to the incumbents in Districts 1,2, 25 and 27 (all Republican).
Audience members expressed concern about weakened shoreland protection, inadequate DNR funding, water contamination from CAFOs (concentrated animal feed operations) and invasive species in our lakes. It was a great discussion, if a little frustrating to those of us who believe environmental protection should take precedence over short-term economic gain.
We’re in the home stretch: Only TWO WEEKS left and this election season is over! Want to help us out? Here is one way!
Nanette is looking for drivers to help her canvas neighborhoods. Got a car? Then you’re THAT MUCH CLOSER to giving Nanette a boost!
If you are available to drive, or go door-to-door yourself, just click this link to send Nanette an email! Yeah, it’s that easy! I know, I’m surprised too!

Bulebosh Announces Bid for 27th District Assembly
June 13, 2016: Rain fails to dampen Nanette’s Elkhart Lake rollout.
… Fifteen years ago I was part of a group of parents who renovated this park. We were a group of mothers who met in each other’s houses while our children played. We talked and found we all agreed that the playground equipment here needed to be replaced. One of us said, “Why don’t we do it?” And soon we hatched a plan, came up with a name, wrote a vision statement – that was my job – and then put our plan in place.
After about a year of raising money and generating community support, we had our Build Day and, with the help of our husbands, some very generous vendors, and a lot of volunteers, put up most of this equipment in one day. That was in 2002, and this park has been busy ever since. My own children played here. For a while I worked in that library, and every time I came to work, and saw kids playing here, I’d smile. I still do…”
