This letter is paid content. My political ad last week documented Representative Zimmerman’s anti environment and anti science voting record. His voting record clearly supports out of state and foreign corporations seeking to exploit and degrade our water and other resources for their corporate profit. Mr. Zimmerman’s votes in favor of water pollution were votes against clean drinking water; votes against lakes and waterways; votes against boating, fishing, and swimming; votes against public health and safety; and votes against his constituents. They were also votes against a $22 billion tourism industry heavily dependent on water resources. Tourists spent nearly $14 billion in Wisconsin in 2019, generated $1.6 billion in state and local revenue taxes, and supported 200,000 jobs. Votes against clean water and tourism are votes against jobs.
