Mark Green's campaign manager has made disparging remarks about not just Jim Doyle but about Jody and Maddy Montgomery. This statement by Ms. Montgomery makes it clear that behind every vote there are real people being affected. Mark Green and Mark Graul would rather that we didn't think about the faces of the people that go with the issues.
Statement of Jody Montgomery in Response to Mark Graul
Madison – Today, Mark Green’s campaign manager Mark Graul issued a statement, suggesting
that Jody Montgomery was being used in a campaign ad from the Doyle campaign.
Montgomery, a Verona mom, appears, with her four-year-old daughter Maddy in the ad, and talksabout the importance of stem cell research.
Montgomery released the following statement through the Doyle campaign:
“Mark Green’s campaign manager says that everyone wants to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.
But Mark Green has voted over and over again against stem cell research that could find a cure
for my daughter.
“And now Mark Green’s campaign manager seems to think that I can’t think for myself. That’s

“I’m a mother who loves her daughter. Because my daughter has juvenile diabetes, there are few issues more important to me and my family than stem cell research. I would give anything to see her healthy and not having to take shots of insulin every day.
“That’s why I appeared in this campaign ad. Mark Green has voted against stem cell research, and has voted against finding a cure for my daughter
