GREEN BAY — A new ad released by Senator Robert Cowles’ campaign claims  he cuts spending when in fact the most recent budget increased by $1.1  billion.
Senator Cowles claims “The big spenders in Madison have  been attacking me,” but the truth is, Senator Cowles is one of those big  spenders. Senator Cowles voted for this year’s biennium budget which  increased spending by over $1 billion as reported by the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau. “While Senator Cowles continues to complain about the actions of  Madison politicians, he fails to acknowledge he’s one of those  politicians. After 29 years in Madison, Senator Cowles is clearly blind  to reality: you can’t have it both ways. Cowles complains about big  spending, but the budget he touts increases spending by $1 billion while  also making drastic cuts to core Wisconsin values: education,  healthcare and support for Seniors.” Nancy Nusbaum grew up in Green Bay, graduated from Green Bay West  High School and University of Wisconsin-Madison. As Mayor of DePere,  Nancy helped create over 1,800 new jobs and cut city taxes 29 percent.  As Brown County Executive, she cut tax rates and spearheaded the  building of the Resch Center, the Convention Center and the Fox River  Trail. Nancy knows how to cut taxes and balance budgets without breaking  the backs of middle class families. Nancy and her husband John, a  Silver Star recipient from his service in Vietnam, live in DePere. They  have two grown children and two grandchildren.
