Ed Garvey, Wisconsin progressive and labor attorney, has died - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Monday, February 27, 2017

U.S. Senate race against Republican Bob Kasten. In 1998, he ran against Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson and lost by a wide margin.During the race against Thompson, Garvey and Barbara Lawton, the candidate for lieutenant governor, barnstormed across the state in recreational vehicles they dubbed "Underdog 1" and "Underdog 2." Running against the influence of money in politics, they set a cap on contributions."One of the things I think is important to know is Ed was a fiery Irishman," Lawton said. "I wasn't raised around stereotypes and didn't know what that meant until I could see that this was Ed Garvey. 'Is this a private fight, or can anyone join?' Boom, he was right in the middle of it."Thompson saluted Garvey as "a fighter, an unrelenting progressive and Democrat, and a tireless champion of the little guy."After he gave up running for office, Garvey concentrated on political organizing. He founded the annual progressive political event known as Fighting Bob Fest, and ran a web site, FightingBob.com, that featured progressive political content and his daily blog.U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont, connected with the crowds at Fighting Bob Fest."Ed was one of the smartest, funniest and most decent people I have ever known," Sanders said in an email to the Journal Sentinel. "I first got to know him decades ago when he came to Vermont to help us try and save good paying union railroad jobs. His idea to create the Fighting Bob Fest was fantastic, as it brought progressives from all walks of life together to plot and plan for the future.  It has become a model for the country for good progressive organizing.""For me, coming to the Fighting Bob Fest was an opportunity not only to visit Wisconsin but to stay with Ed and Betty in their home, and meet with their beautiful family and friends," Sanders said. "Ed Garvey will be sorely missed, but not forgotten. He was an inspiration to many of us."Born in Burlington, Garvey received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He also served two years in the U.S. Army.In recent years, as Garvey fought illness, Lawton said she and Zweifel visited him regularly. Although he lost the capacity to do some of the things he loved most — playing golf, speaking in public and engaging in political organizing — Lawton said Garvey lived his life with "such grace.""He was candid and frank with us," she said. "Ed never initiated a complaint about his illness. You had to ask to get to know the real story."Funeral arrangements are pending.Read or Share this story: http://www.jsonline.com/story/news/obituaries/2017/02/22/wisconsin-progressive-and-labor-attorney-ed-garvey-has-died/98249552/Let's block ads! a...
