WHAT IS THE SSDC?

The mission of the State Senate Democratic Committee, or SSDC, is to help elect Democrats to the Wisconsin Senate. As the campaign apparatus for Wisconsin Senate Democrats, the SSDC serves as a logistical hub for both incumbent Democratic members of the Wisconsin State Senate as well as prospective candidates.

SSDC’s resources are used exclusively to assist Senate candidates and their campaign organizations to further the goal of achieving a Democratic majority in the Wisconsin State Senate. To that end, the staff and members of SSDC work extensively with candidates and grassroots volunteers and organizations to strengthen the campaign efforts of those seeking election to the Wisconsin State Senate.

SSDC staff assist candidates with technical advice on strategy, targeting, fundraising as well as messaging and media planning. The SSDC staff and members have many years of experience working with Senate candidates and campaigns and regularly put that knowledge to work on behalf of both first time candidates and incumbents seeking re-election.

We are at an unprecedented time in Wisconsin’s history. Governor Walker, in coordination with the Republican-controlled legislature, has launched an all-out assault on the working families of Wisconsin. They have shattered our common sense progressive and pragmatic values and institutions with their attacks on public education, health care and the voting rights of our citizens. Now, more than ever, we need a Democratic majority in the State Senate to stop and reverse the assault on the working families of Wisconsin.

The State Senate Democratic Committee is working every day to elect candidates who will fight against and reverse the Walker agenda.

The Senate Democrats are committed to protecting the most vulnerable individuals in our society while getting Wisconsin back to work.

Now, above all else, we need to stand up for working families in Wisconsin but we cannot do it without your help.

Please stop back often for updates and information about what we are doing to protect working families in Wisconsin.

You can help the Senate Democrats fight back with a contribution today.

    Robert Beller, VA Hospital Director’s Racist Rule Book

    Robert Beller has been the Clement Zablocki VA Medical Center Director since October of 2007. Robert Beller, VA Director continues to stretch and bend Milwaukee VA Hospital regulations
    to support his Discriminating Policies and Practices against Black Veterans and Employees.

    When an African American is employed at the Clement Zablocki VA Medical Center and receives a complaint. The Complaint will immediately be sent from the Patient Advocate to Robert Beller, VA Director. After it has been confirmed that the individual is a Black Employee, Robert Beller will automatically have the complaint permanently placed in their files for future review. The complaint against the African American Employee will receive the immediate attention from Robert Beller’s Board Members. The Board Members know that Robert Beller wants this individual to receive the harshest punishment possible to include termination.

    When a White Milwaukee VA Hospital Employee receives a Complaint Patient Advocate sends it to Robert Beller,
    VA Director’s Office. Once it has been determined that the Complaint is against a White employee, it is usually automatically dismissed by Robert Beller and is never placed in their files. No matter how serious the offence by the White employee, they will continue to qualify for
    pay increases, bonuses and promotions.

    Robert Beller, VA Hospital Director’s Racist Rule Book

    Here is just one example to support the preferential treatment by Robert Beller, VA Director of his White Staff Members. In November of 2011 Charles Claybrooks submitted an Official Complaint against Jenna Lechnir, a White Radiation Therapist. Charles Claybrooks is an African American Disabled Veteran and at the time of the Official Complaint was a Cancer Patient. The Complaint detailed the unprofessional and sadistic behavior explained as Severe Emotional Abuse of a Critically Ill Veteran Cancer Patient.

    Over a period of the past three years Charles Claybrooks submitted dozens of Complaint Letters to Robert Beller, VA Director. After the first two Complaints received, Robert Beller, VA Director discontinued all communication with Charles Claybrooks and refused to make any comment regarding to the Complaint against Jenna Lechnir.

    To date, Jenna Lechnir works in the Radiation Therapy Department as a Radiation Therapist and has never received any kind of disciplinary action of any kind. There is absolutely no record of any Complaint being filed against Jenna Lechnir as she continues to receive regular pay increases, bonuses and promotions.

    Robert Beller, VA Hospital Director’s Racist Rule Book

    The Official Complaint by Charles Claybrooks never received any attention because once Robert Beller determined that it was against a White Employee, he dismissed it. You can visit the employee files of Jenna Lechnir today, and you would see that there is absolutely no record of any Complaint ever being Filed against her by a Cancer Patient or anyone else. Robert Beller is solely responsible for white washing the records of his employees.
    The Clement Zablocki VA Medical Center Black Veterans and Employees deserve respectful and fair Treatment and Care.
    These Rights will not be provided as long as Robert Beller is the Clement Zablocki VA Medical Center Director.
    The Approval Rating of Robert Beller and his Board Members are at an all time low.
    The Milwaukee VA Medical Center continues to be one of the most segregated Veterans Hospitals in the Country.
    Robert Beller has caused a division among the Milwaukee VA Medical Center Veterans.
    Black Veteran Patients and VA Hospital Employee are not receiving the same quality of treatment and care as others.
    Robert Beller should be removed as the current VA Director.

    Signed, Charles Claybrooks
