Episode 2 - Andy Won't (or Can't) Vote for Nick and Other Much Needed Professional Analysis

Please pull up a chair and join the Nick Hart for Madison campaign as we welcome to the studio, Andy Gussert of Progressive Strategies, LLC., who is the State Alliance Director of Boys & Girls Club of Wisconsin, and a Wisconsin and Madison political operative.

We talk about the current political situation in Madison, discuss some of the key issues we see as important for the primary, thoughts on Mayor Paul Soglin’s re-entry into the race, some analysis of the other candidates, and political strategy straight from Andy to the Nick Hart for Madison campaign.

Insightful and invaluable information tailor-made for the campaign that we chose to include in a podcast readily available to Nick’s many political enemies.

Future episodes will have additional interviews with other experts and hopefully a chance to meet one-on-one with the entire mayoral field.

Thanks for listening and feel free to donate to the cause!
