Resources for Supporting the Public Market


Friends,

Thank you for your desire to support our Madison Public Market project. We’ve come way too far and the need for supporting our small businesses is too great to stop the momentum now!

The Madison Public Market Foundation has put together a variety of talking points below to help you write letters to the editor, email your elected officials, and chat with people in our community in support of the Market. Please feel welcome to use any of the language to help support your viewpoint. If you have any questions, you can reach out to us at info@madisonpublicmarket.org.

Here’s one example of a letter of support from Neil Heinen, Channel 3000. 

Also, from the Northside Planning Council, as published in Madison365:  Opinion: Defunding the Public Market is yet another divestment from communities of color

Talking points (according to type of supporter):

For General Supporters

For Small Business/Vendors

For Civic Leaders

For Large Businesses

“Boardman Clark provided a lead gift to the Public Market because it resonates with many of our firm’s values, including the commitment to sustainability and social equity, and because it creates an opportunity to partner with the City and drive economic development, with a focus on entrepreneurs from diverse and underrepresented communities.” - Richard Heinemann, Boardman Clark
