Bill Iwen Tips Hat to Water Warrior, Lynn Utesch

William Iwen is a retired dentist living in Algoma in northeastern Wisconsin.

Iwen penned a letter endorsing water warrior, , candidate for the First assembly district.

Utesch is running against a pretender, a front-man for the polluters.

From the :

The CAFO industry relies on free water from our aquifers and when millions of gallons of aquifer water is polluted with animal waste and unknown, unmeasured, undisclosed chemicals, hormones and antibiotic residuals, this dangerous waste is dumped back on karst countryside.

Lynn Utesch, who is running to represent District 1 in the Wisconsin Assembly, is a small organic farmer who does not need high-capacity wells or monocultures of chemical-dependent GMO corn, soy and alfalfa. He does believe in job creation for young people yearning to get back to the land as sustainable farmers on the land they love.

Utesch supports a solid public education system that is not threatened by the privatization of education via the for-profit voucher system that Walker and Rep. Joel Kitchens, Utesch's competitor, support. We all bear witness to what happens when any private industry has no accountability to the taxpayer, such as what we are experiencing right now in Kewaunee County with the CAFO industry!

A vote for Utesch is a vote for environmental justice.

Thank you, Bill Iwen.
