Thank you!

Brett Thanks Voters, Family, Volunteers, Supporters
Brett made this statement after the election on Tuesday:

Thank you 78th District voters for your strong support, the 76% vote was a healthy margin.

Thanks for your kind words while visiting your homes and neighborhoods. I congratulate my opponent for a spirited campaign.

Special thanks to my family--especially Mary Kay, Tyler and Lea-- for all their support through the heat, cold, rain, and tough times.

The vote showed strong support for my Get Wisconsin Working Again Plan to invest in jobs and our schools, provide healthcare for all, protect our environment and reform the redistricting process.

Thanks to the many public servants who supported me, especially Senators Fred Risser, Mark Miller, Jon Erpenbach, my colleagues Rep. Mark Pocan, Terese Berceau, Gary Hebl, Chris Taylor, Peter Barca and Sondy Pope-Roberts, County Executive Parisi, Alders Mark Clear, Lisa Subeck, Matt Phair, Chris Schmidt, County Supervisors Matt Veldran, and Dianne Hesselbein and many others.

Deep thanks to all the volunteers and to all the unions, women's health, gay rights, and conservation organizations that endorsed me. I could not have done it without you.

We now turn to working with President Obama, Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin, Representative-elect Mark Pocan, city, and county leaders to make real progress for our families.

Most importantly, I look forward to working with you and my colleagues to create a better Wisconsin.

Thank you and let me know if there is anything I can do for you."

Brett releases bilingual Spanish ad

Diego Campoverde-Cisneros
of La Movida helped Brett with
production of the ad.

“Yo trabajo para usted, I work for you” highlights Hulsey’s work for workers, families, our schools, healthcare, and UW

Madison, WI—Democratic State Representative Brett Hulsey today unveiled a bilingual Spanish language radio ad, “Yo trabajo para usted, I work for you,” that will run until the election on La Movida, 1480 AM, in Madison.

“I wanted to let everyone know we work for them and put my high school Spanish to work,” said Hulsey. The script is below.

Hulsey worked to stop voter suppression laws to take away the right to vote for thousands of Wisconsinites, worked to protect our public schools and UW, and helped protect medicine and
healthcare programs.

"Brett Hulsey fought for our families and workers in the Assembly and I urge you to vote for him to get Wisconsin working again," said State Representative JoCasta Zamarippa, Democrat of Milwaukee, and freshman caucus chair. "I appreciate Brett doing a Spanish language ad and fighting for all Wisconsin residents."

Hulsey worked with district residents and Rep. Zamarippa to prepare the script and radio ad.

Hulsey is a member of the Assembly Natural Resources, Energy and Utilities, Tourism and State Facilities Committees. He also owns a small business. Hulsey, his wife Mary Kay, and their family have traveled to Mexico. Hulsey also helped the Columbian Support Network.

I would appreciate your vote on November 6th

It has been an honor serving you in the Legislature for the last two years and on the County Board for 14 years. For all that time, you trusted me to tell you what I was going to do and do my best to make progress.

My wife and I have lived in the district and owned a home here for 18 years. Our son Tyler goes to Memorial High School and our daughter Lea goes to Spring Harbor.

Being the only candidate running who lives in the district, I believe I have a better understanding and personal investment in serving the other residents of the 78th District.

This last session, we fought the corporate takeover of Wisconsin. My Assembly Democratic colleagues and I debated the “Unfair Despair” Act 10 for a record 62 hours. The good news is a judge recently struck down the worst parts of that law.

In this last legislative session:
  • Stopped attacks on our Wisconsin Retirement System, the best in the nation;  
  • Senator Jon Erpenbach and I worked to protect healthcare for 29,000 children and thousands of others; 
  • My Jobs, Energy and Tax Savings Act would cut state energy bills and pollution, increase efficiency, and put people back to work
  • I supported the Save our Schools Plan to increase public school investment, and voted to restore UW and Madison College funding;
  • We stopped the strip mine giveaway bill that threatened 18,000 mortgages, including 700 right here in Dane County; 
  • Rep. Terese Berceau and I highlighted GOP efforts to take away cancer screening and women’s health services
  • Rep. Mark Pocan and I stopped Walker’s public power plant giveaways with no bid contracts; 
  • We moved forward to protect our lakes;
  • To move us forward, my Get Wisconsin Working Again Plan invests in our public school, UW and technical college students, provides healthcare for all, creates thousands of jobs, and provides cleaner energy, drinking water and lakes.
For more information, call me at 238-6070, email me at

I would appreciate your vote on November 6th.

Thank you and have a great day.
