Four Lakes Greens endorse Yogesh Chawla for Dane County Board

The_Four_lakes_green_party.pngThe Four Lakes Green Party has endorsed Yogesh Chawla for Dane County Board in the 4-way race in District 6, where longtime Supervisor John Hendrick is stepping down.

Yogesh’s commitment to bold progressive values, impressive command of the issues, and track record of community activism set him apart in this race.

The Four Lakes Greens urge all District 6 residents who share our values of grassroots democracy, social justice, nonviolence and ecology to support Yogesh Chawla in the February 20 primary and the April 3 general election.

Yogesh is constantly working to make our community a better place, and he is not content to let Dane County rest on its liberal reputation or make excuses for why we can’t do better. He has concrete plans to tackle our county’s racial disparities - some of the worst in the nation - especially in the criminal justice system. He supports assertive action to reverse the decline of our lakes and expand the use of clean energy. One of his top priorities is equity for residents with the greatest needs, including affordable housing, mental health services, and an improved transportation network.

Yogesh also plans to bring his passion for clean, open politics to local government, through increased public access, open source software and data, and greater efforts to inform and engage the public. On issue after issue, he demonstrates the knowledge and drive to be an effective, boldly progressive supervisor who will push Dane County to be the best it can be.

Yogesh is coming up on a hotly contested primary race on February 20th - to learn more about his campaign and how you can help, go to .
