INTERVIEW: Heather Townsend

Heather Townsend has been active in local politics in southeastern Wisconsin for only a few years, but in a short time she has made a lasting impact. Local legislators count on her to organize volunteers to drop lit and knock on doors. She’s a regular at county part events and Pints & Politics. And she reliably does the work to help ensure conservative and Republican victories.

It was Scott Walker’s recall that motivated her to get involved, and today we talk about how she reached her tipping point, what keeps her motivated to be a grassroots leader, and even some of the obstacles she’s faced within the party.
