Wisconsin Democracy Campaign Follow the Money Name Check

Stealth visit by Walker, cabinet members targeted Minnesota businesses. (Pierce County Herald, 10/15/2013)

The event, an invitation-only breakfast, was held at Jim Kirvida's airplane hangar. 

Jim Kirvida's contributions to Wisconsin Republicans.

Gretchen Kirvida's contribution to Wisconsin Republicans.

Interesting that neither husband nor wife have donated any money to Walker.

The event was promoted by the St. Croix Economic Development Corporation, whose president is Bill Rubin.  One of the homepage photos features the Minneapolis skyline.  Ballsy.

Surprsingly, Rubin's not listed in the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign's Follow the Money database. 

Also mentioned in the article is S. Mark Tyler, founder and president of Woodville-based OEM Fabricators and a member of the Wisconsin Technical College System Board.  He contributed $250, his only WDC entry, to State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers on February 9, 2013.
