He discusses the groups grassroots lobbying efforts from their station at MLK Blvd. and Main opposite the market, which included a member dressed up in a salmon costume that was a hit with the kids, as well as their Sunday stop at the west-side Fontana Sports and Monday visits to Spring Harbor Middle School and the local offices of Representative Tammy Baldwin and Senators Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl.
