Bernard Schaber: Fox Valley should be the future of the Dem Party

State Rep. Penny Bernard Schaber of Appleton welcomed the state party to her hometown, calling the Fox Valley a key component of the party's future.

Bernard Schaber said Fox Valley communities are growing and increasingly progressive, noting that after becoming the first Dem in a century to being elected to her seat, he is unopposed this year.

She also encouraged attendees to have a strong convention, saying the party can learn from lessons of the past 16 months, "but not be limited by them."

She also encouraged the party to embrace public investments, likening them to the fuel that drives small businesses to serve as an economic engine for the entire state.

"Let's have one large communal sigh or primal scream, whichever you prefer, and let's move onto a positive future," she said. After the first request got a half-hearted scream, Bernard Schaber got the crowd to try a second time with a communal sigh.

Listen to the speech.
