Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
'To hear about a recall of Doyle, that was the best news of all,' said attendee Anita Rudman of Milwaukee. 'We have to give the government back to the people. The government is not listening to actual Americans'."
The "Defending the American Dream Summit" continues for a couple more hours at the Midwest Airlines Center, a gathering of state conservatives.
Jsonline reports a Franklin resident created the biggest stir:
"The biggest roar of the day occurred when Orv Seymer of Citizen's For Responsible Government announced plans to stage a petition drive for a recall of Gov. Jim Doyle.
'We're going to need close to 10,000 circulators' of the petition, he said. 'It's a massive undertaking.'
Seymer's group knows a thing or two about recalls, having led successful efforts against former Milwaukee County Executive Tom Ament and a number of former Milwaukee County Supervisors.
Of course, this is a massive undertaking, but even if unsuccessful, it will provide a whole new database of potential campaign volunteers and donors.
