Custard & Canvassing

Custard breaks have become a regular occurrence at the Green Bay office. I like to think that I do my best brainstorming over a cup of ice cream or custard.

Fortunately for me, the Fair Wisconsin Green Bay office is located next door to a custard and burger stand. I soon learned that Zesty’s is a local institution in Green Bay. Besides serving food, the business also serves as our point of reference when we tell supporters where our office is located. “Our office is on Greene Ave. and Libal St., right next to Zesty’s” has become a common way of explaining our location.

On Saturday, Zesty’s became more than a point of reference by giving Fair Wisconsin canvassers a discount on their purchases after they returned from educating voters. Many of the FW volunteers were happy to see that the flavor of the day was chocolate caramel pecan while others went with the daily staples of chocolate or vanilla. Personally, I prefer the chocolate, but I enjoy them all. Custard and canvassing, what could be better?

Many other businesses across the state have also been helping. Some donate food or services while others post our signs in their store front. Every little bit helps.

If you’re ever in Green Bay, come down to the office, make some phone calls, talk to some voters, and grab some custard too. If you don’t know where we’re located, it’s right next to Zesty’s.

Thanks for the info, Mitch! What kind of volunteer opportunities are there in Green Bay?

How are we supposed to get the message out if we don't have yardsigns?

Hey Ogden,
Our primary focus is educating voters at doors and making phone calls. We are doing these activities almost every night of the week and all weekend long. Call the office at 920-265-4977 or go to to learn about specific times and to sign up. There are so many undecided voters in northeast Wisconsin that will vote no, if we just talk to them. I hope to see you soon.

This looks like a great way to bring in volunteers!

I just noticed the post about yard signs. While yard signs are a nice visibility tool, they're not a very effective way to educate voters.

We know that this election is going to be very close. But what's more is that we also know that there are still a thousands of undecided voters all around the state.

We know that when these undecided voters learn about the far-reaching consequences of the ban, they will vote no. As a result, the most important thing we can do right now is go door-to-door and educate these voters.
