    Hi. My name is Andrew. I am a new convert to the Libertarian party and I was wondering your stance on gun control in the state of Wisconsin?

    Hello!


    My name is Mary Dougherty and I’m president of the Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network a coalition of grassroots groups working to protect their communities from factory farm pollution and I have a question — will you, as the Libertarian candidate for Governor, support a state-wide moratorium on new and expanding factory farm permits? A moratorium is a common-sense measure that will allow our elected officials in Madison to research the myriad of issues related to the proliferation of factory farms across our rural landscape and pass regulations that protect public health and safety.


    We have over 50 co-sponsors, 14 towns and cities have passed resolutions in support of a moratorium, and over 800 citizens have signed a petition calling for a moratorium. We’ve developed a position statement that outlines our rationale for a factory farm moratorium as well as the conditions for lifting the moratorium.


    Wisconsin citizens deserve more protection from their elected officials and it’s time to put citizens’ rights before the rights of Big Ag and their factory farms. Governor Walker’s ‘open for business’ mantra has had devastating impacts for rural citizens and family farmers in Wisconsin. They are in the cross-hairs of an expanding and increasingly powerful large-scale agricultural industry and examples of that harm continue to mount across Wisconsin:


    - Wisconsin is losing family dairy farmers at an alarming rate.

    -
    The 2016 Legislative Audit Bureau report highlighted the DNR’s lack of oversight and enforcement.

    - Grassland Dairy dumped approximately 75 family farmers in April 2017.

    -
    While the DNR designed a program to provide drinking water to citizens with manure-tainted wells in April 2017, I’m not aware of any water distributed to impacted private well users.

    - Nearly one-third of CAFOs in Wisconsin are operating with expired permits.

    -
    Water contamination in La Crosse County prompted DNR spokesman Jim Dick to state, “The DNR doesn’t have a policy regarding notifying municipalities or private well owners in the vicinity when a CAFO violates a permit.”

    - In May 2018, the EPA began a large-scale project in Juneau County They are testing water for pollution and drilling wells near Wysocki’s Central Sands Dairy factory farm. In addition, Juneau County Health Department officials tested one-hundred wells in Armenia (home of Central Sands Daory factory farm), with more than 40 percent found to have nitrate levels exceeding the 10 milligrams per liter standard set by the EPA.

    -
    Pay to Play is the theme song of Walker’s WI and the recent Supreme Court decision that paves the way for Wysocki’s Golden Sands factory farm in Wood County is yet another example. Wysocki family members and other owners of the Wysocki Family of Companies contributed about $92,500 between January 2010 and December 2017 to legislative and statewide candidates and fundraising committees.


    In spite of these issues, the DNR continues to permit new and expanding Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) across the state and enough is enough. It’s time for our elected officials to take a look at the consequences of the Livestock Siting Law (which provided regulatory certainty to Big Ag and took away a community’s right to say NO to a factory farm) and come up with solutions that work for everyone, not just industrial agriculture and factory farm owners.


    Wisconsin citizens are eager to engage with and elect candidates who will advocate for our right to clean water, clean air, and to be safe in our homes. As the Democratic candidate for Governor, your support of a factory farm moratorium will provide important leadership for members of the Senate and Assembly as they begin the 2019 session and will signal your support for Wisconsin citizen’s health and safety.


    Please provide your response by August 6th. Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network intends to issue a press release with your response (as well as the other candidates responses) on August 8th.


    Please get in touch if you have any questions,

    Hello Phil,


    My name is James Strebe and I write for the Badger Herald. The Herald is going to be running an article previewing the upcoming gubernatorial election and its implications, and I was hoping that your campaign could make some time to tell us what makes you stand out as a candidate.


    Our reader base is mostly college students, so along with your general policy goals, it would be great if you could focus on the campaign’s plans for higher education in Wisconsin.


    Please reach out to me if you are interested so that we can arrange a time to talk. If possible, a phone interview would be preferable to a written statement. I am most available on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I can make time on another date if needed. I plan on submitting my story to my editor on Friday night.


    Thanks,

    James

    You lie. The Libertarian Party is a perfect fir for you. Ha!! Way back in 2014, you ran as an independent. Your just hitching your coattails to any one silly enough to back you.
  • Terry Virgil
    I could use at lot of help with my getting signatures real bad. I need some one to contact me please
  • Jenny Tryba
    I support having a libertarian in office and wish to see this man succeed , and I offer this with that in mind, this website is awful. Whatever this is to you, if it’s just part of working with Nation Builder I don’t know, but it hard to find and hard to navigate. The header is ridiculously huge and takes away from the actual articles. The colors are also really hard on the eyes, I have trouble making out the text and it makes my eyes water after a few minutes. I would seriously seriously consider another website, it should be pretty much be where people land when they google Phil Anderson.

    Mr. Anderson,
    How can Libertarian politics be separated from laissez faire (and therefore pro-Koch Brothers Business) Corporate politics? I voted for you and am hoping to become better educated on the Libertarian cause. Please recommend some reading, if willing/ able.


    Thank you!

    I noticed that you filled out the political courage test of votesmart and I was wondering exactly where you stood on the issue of transgender rights.
  • Jessy Humke
    I am looking through the canidates for the election, and would like to know where you stand on a few things.

    First, what do you think about legalizing/decriminalizing/medical marijuana?

    Second, what do you think of the price of college? If the government would hike taxes and give free tuition would you be for or against it?

    Thank you for your time,

    Hello,


    My name is Luis.


    I am a first generation American, the son of immigrants, born and raised in this great nation. As a young child, I developed a fascination with politics, specifically elections.


    Since then, campaigns and elections are my passion, so much as graduating with a degree in political science, with an emphasis on American elections. In my free time you can find me watching ads, reading candidate statements, attending rallies, and keeping tabs on polls.


    More recently I have started to collect political bumper stickers. My collection started in 2010 and I have gathering memorabilia every election cycle since. I have collected from various parties and levels and have started a Twitter account to share my collection.


    I am writing in hopes that you would be able to send me a 2016 Anderson campaign bumper sticker to add to my collection. In return, I will mention Phil Anderson on my twitter account @politicalbumper, post a picture of the bumper sticker and along with a link to your website.


    My address is as follows:

    Luis Guitart

    1623 Bellevue Ave

    Apt 603

    Seattle, WA 98122


    I really appreciate your time and consideration.


    Cheers,


    Luis

    Like Jill Stein has been doing with the debates, you should also offer a youtube of your answers to the senate debates!

    I heard your interview on NPR this morning and was not able to call in with my question.

    My question is regarding your position on Social Issues. In particular, people with disabilities and mental illness. Would you vote in support of programs to aid these individuals?

    Thanks,

    Mary
  • Thomas Greiner
    I would love to support you, but I can see nothing on your web site that would give me a reason to do so beyond the fact that you and I are both Libertarians. That is really not enough to get most people to vote for you instead of Ron or Russ. So, I want to ask you, can you outline the first piece of legislation that you would propose/support if elected?
  • Stephen Ecker
    I seem to have an ugly empty spot on my lawn next to my “I Vote Libertarian” and “Gary Johnson For President” yard signs. This empty spot is an eyesore. I have grown weary of looking at it and need it to be fixed ASAP.


    The bare spot is practically begging for a “Phil Anderson For U.S. Senate” sign.


    What do I need to do to procure a spot to fix that ugly bare spot on my lawn? I am willing to make a small donation in return for obtaining such a sign.


    Thanks!!

    Dear Mr. Anderson,


    I am emailing you as a voter that is curious as to where you stand on the issues of public land transfer from Federal ownership to State ownership, mining and drilling on public lands, stream access to public waters, and increasing access to public lands. I appreciate your time as I prepare to cast my vote this November.

    Dear Mr. Anderson,


    We would like to start off by thanking you for your civic service. Our names are Adam Brager and Ryan Mussack. We are American Government teachers at Sauk Prairie High School. Sauk Prairie School District services the South Central Wisconsin villages of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac. Our high school has an enrollment of roughly 840 students.


    We are writing to see if you would be interested in coming to visit and share a few words with our students in our American Government classes. Our class is based on the curriculum of Steve Arnold’s Legislative Semester. This curriculum is a great opportunity for our students to become engaged in the legislative process. Throughout the course of this semester-long class, students will take on the role of a legislator. Our students will investigate and analyze their political ideology, create a website for their constituents, decide which issues they feel most strongly about, join a political party, vote for party leadership, complete research and author a bill, debate their peer’s bills in committee, and vote in full session on which bills will be moved on to the to the executive to be signed into law. Students are also expected to become informed and involved in real-world events, such as campaigning, elections, State of the Union/State addresses, etc. This is where we believe that you could be of great help to our students.


    Our students would benefit from your expertise in the experiences you have had in our American government system. We would be open to any day you have available over the course of the 2016-2017 school year. We would love to have you come and do whatever you are comfortable doing. Some examples of what you could do to help our students are: talk to them about your experiences in government, act as an expert in any particular area you see fit, partake in a Q&A session with our students, come and observe our class activities (class work, bill research and writing, committee meetings, or full session), act as a guest speaker for our students, or act as a “consultant” to our student representatives during their bill writing process.


    We would like to thank you for your time and consideration. We are extremely hopeful that you can find time in your hectic and busy schedule to provide our students with an unforgettable learning opportunity and experience. Thank you for your civic service; we look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to contact either of us through any means of communication listed below:
