50 Reasons Voters Don’t Want the Same Old Gard

MADISON – After being rejected by voters in 2006, career politician John Gard is running for the 8th Congressional District seat again on his same old extreme record with his same old unethical behavior. The hard-working families of northeast Wisconsin do not share his extreme values, and that’s why this Bush-Cheney Republican will lose again.

During the 50 days leading up to the general election on November 4, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will list 50 reasons why voters should reject the same old failed leadership and same old out-of-touch agenda of Republican candidate John Gard – and send Democrat Steve Kagen back to our nation’s capital to represent northeast Wisconsin for a second term.

Reason #40

Gard Opposed Increasing Compliance with Seat Belt Laws 

Gard said he had little use for President Clinton’s 1997 efforts to increase compliance with many states’ mandatory seat belt laws. Gard contended the proposal “would force us to pull millions of dollars from our highway construction budget and use them for seat belt enforcement programs.” (Source: The Capital Times, 4.12.97)
