The Wisconsin Legislature is out of session and members are running for reelection in districts across Wisconsin. What does this mean? It means that candidates will be asking the WCA for its endorsement and for financial support from our political conduit account, the Chiropractic Health Information and Education Fund (CHIEF).


This election season will NOT be business as usual. Here is why: several years ago, before I became WCA Executive Director, the WCA stopped conducting interviews with candidates and made contribution decisions based on targeted races as determined by legislative leadership. This meant that your conduit dollars were going to candidates who may have had little understanding of the issues facing Wisconsin chiropractors and possibly no commitment to pro-chiropractic policies.
