State Rep. Jeff Stone Clarifies Statement on Campaign Flier

Due to printer's error, campaign material incorrectly conveys Republican's position on Act 10, the collective bargaining law.

State Rep. Jeff Stone Clarifies Statement on Campaign Flier

State Rep. Jeff Stone, who is seeking re-election in the 82nd Assembly District, issued this statement Friday afternoon regarding a campaign mailing piece that included extraneous words prefacing a quote from Bill Smith of the Wisconsin National Federation for Independent Business.

I know that at this point of the election cycle, printers and mail houses are working around the clock to meet the needs of their customers who are in the political business. As a printer myself, I understand that errors can be made working in such a time sensitive environment.

Unfortunately, the vendor I use made one of these mistakes and put out a campaign lit piece which inaccurately includes the extraneous phrase “Wants to Repeal Act 10”. To be clear: I voted for Act 10 and will NOT be working to change this law. My graphic designer has informed me that the phrase was inadvertently inserted while making changes after my final approval of the order. I became aware of this error once the printed material began arriving in the mail today.

I apologize for any confusion that this may have created and want the voters in my district to know that I do not hide from my positions on the issues nor the votes I have taken.
