Smith described the state’s current attitude toward public employees as harmful to morale and ineffective as a tool for providing additional funds for municipal operations.

The Republican Challenger:  David Eiler

About:    Being on the Markesan School Board has inspired me to help find ways to fund our schools to keep them the best we can offer our students. Our leaders of tomorrow are our students of today. We must give them the best education we can to prepare them for the struggles they will face tomorrow.

I’m offering myself up to you. Madison needs people with common sense business practices to hold down the spending of our hard earned tax dollars. I will go to Madison to fight for your children’s educational system, to fight for small business owners, to fight for the elderly, to fight for the working class people, to fight to hold down taxes and state spending. I’m willing to fight for these things, are you?

Meet the 14th Senate District candidates.  (Beaver Dam Daily Citizen, 8/3/2012)\

More specifically, the Republican primary candidates, as Worthington is not included in the interviews.

Eiler sets an interesting table in response to the first question:  What sets you apart from your opponent?

Answer: I feel it is the fact that I am a born-again Christian. I have been married to only one woman, and I take my vows very seriously.

The Democratic Challenger:  Margarete Worthington
