Billboard Coming Soon!

Barron County Democrats Billboard: Equal Justice, Facts not myths, Fair Elections

Barron County Democrats are kicking off a multifaceted messaging campaign, to set the record straight on the fundamental principles motivating us as Democrats; principles in sharp contrast to the Fascist impulses now so apparent on the extreme right.

We plan to make this a long-term, integral part of our strategy for changing the political climate in Barron County. The most visible portion of our campaign will be billboard messaging. We are placing the initial billboard message on Hwy 8 west of Barron in mid-May. We anticipate changing the message from time to time to reflect various aspects of our principles and beliefs

We want your help in two ways:
  1. Suggestions for messages to use on subsequent billboards.
  2. Donations to fund the campaign into the future.
We appreciate any amount you can pitch in!
Each contribution of $25 keeps the billboard up for more than a day. A contribution of $175 covers costs for more than a whole week!

Rather send a check?
