LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The La Crosse County Republican Party launched its new headquarters Saturday.
This is the first time the local party has a headquarters open during a non-election year.
Chairman Julian Bradley said the goal is community outreach; the headquarters will be a place people can stop by and ask questions about representatives, legislation and learn about the La Crosse GOP. Especially since Governor Walker will introduce his budget proposal Feb. 20.
"What we can do is give (people) the opportunity to come on in, stop down, and talk to us about it. They may not be able to get a hold of everybody else, and our local politicians, our senator, is a democrat, and our assembly people here, the 94th and 95th (Districts), are both democrats," Bradley said. "So. it gives people a chance to hear the other side of the story. They can come and talk to us one-on-one. Sure, we may not always have the answers, but we can point them in the right direction, and we can find them for them.
Former state Sen. Dan Kapanke jointed the group for the grand opening.
The headquarters is at 40 Copeland Ave., just a block away from their old building.
