Garage Politics

They're opinionated, conservative and strict constitutionalists. And they'd be proud to tell you that.

They're The Group – a semi-formal political discussion group that meets monthly in Brian Garrow's garage in Appleton about 2-3 blocks from my place. They discuss local and state politicians and issues and decide who they will support in upcoming elections.

It's grassroot politics at its best.

Peter Stueck, far left, a candidate for Wisconsin's 57th Assembly District, speaks while being interviewed by The Group, a small political discussion group, that gathers at the garage of Brian Garrow in Appleton, Wis., Wednesday evening, July 9, 2008.

Vested member Chuck Schmidt, right, asks a pointed question of Stueck during the interview Wednesday evening.
