Recall Satya campaign about ‘halfway home’

Empower Wisconsin | Aug. 19, 2020 

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON — With less than three weeks to go before signed petitions are due, the organizer of a campaign to recall Madison leftist Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway tells Empower Wisconsin the effort is picking up steam. 

“Things are going very well. We’re still growing every day,” said Jon Rygiewicz of Madison, who launched the Recall Satya 2020 petition drive last month. “We are getting a response from her campaign, which tells us we’re doing a great job.” 

The recall drive has attracted more heat from the mayor’s camp, and vandals, Rygiewicz said. He said someone ripped down the group’s 8-foot by 4-foot sign during a cook-out last weekend — just 5 minutes after it was put up. It wasn’t the first time. 

“All our yard signs put in businesses that give us permission to do so, they are being torn down,” he said. “They (the mayor’s supporters) are savagely coming after us.” 

Rhodes-Conway’s campaign did not return an email seeking comment. Campaign officials could not be reached at a number listed on the mayor’s campaign webpage. 

Last last month, Rygiewicz said the recall effort had garnered 8,000 signatures or pledges. He said the campaign, as of Tuesday, was “nearly halfway home,” with about 16,000 signatures collected to date. Organizers will need to come up with 34,203 valid signatures by Sept. 6. 

Rygiewicz sounds confident. He said the signatures “are out there.” If he didn’t believe so, he said he wouldn’t have launched the recall drive. 

“Every time she speaks, that’s volumes (of signatures) for us. People jump ship, ” he said. “I’m hoping she has a few more speeches before this is over.”
