Cannella to auction off furniture in Burlington
Cannella Response Television announced today it will auction off furniture, decorative items and antiques at its soon-to-be former headquarters at 492 N. Pine St. in Burlington.
The auction will be held on Sat., Dec. 17, with a viewing at 9 a.m. and the auction starting at 10 a.m. All proceeds will go to the Love Inc. Christmas Food Bank. All auction attendees are asked to bring a canned food item for the benefit of the food bank.
"Items for auction will include several like-new wooden desks, historical antique advertising glass, office chairs, antique cameras, electronics and so much more", said Frank Cannella, company founder. "We’ve sold the building and moved the business, so everything must go."
Available items are those that will be left behind on Dec. 2 when Cannella, the largest infomercial media company in the direct response television industry, will move into its newly constructed office building at 848 Liberty Drive in the Burlington Manufacturing and Office Park. The newly constructed building doubles the company’s space to 9,600 square feet in order to accommodate a significant staff expansion.
“We placed a major order for new furniture and accessories for our new offices, and as a result there are a large number of items that we simply could not take with us when we moved,” said Robert Medved, CEO of Cannella Response Television. “We are very happy to be able to give back to the community by holding this auction and donating all of  the proceeds to the Love, Inc. Food Bank in time for the holiday season.”
The company was purchased in 2009 by private equity firms ZM Capital and Palladium Equity Partners along with Veronis Suhler Stevenson.

Kennedy to explain new voter I.D. rules
Kevin Kennedy, director and general counsel of the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB), will be the featured guest at the Milwaukee Press Club’s next Newsmaker Luncheon on Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 11:45 to 1:30 p.m. at the Newsroom Pub in downtown Milwaukee at 137 E. Wells St.
Kennedy will discuss the role of the GAB and the status of the recall drives being attempted against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four state senators.
He also will provide insights for the community about how Milwaukee’s inner city residents and senior citizens who do not have drivers licenses, as well as college students, can obtain adequate identification to meet the standards of the state’s new Voter I.D. law.
In addition, Kennedy will provide updates about the state’s redistricting and a lawsuit recently filed by Republicans to move up the redistricting boundaries they had approved for 2013 to instead take effect in the 2012 recall elections.
Prior to the formation of the GAB – a merger of the Wisconsin State Elections Board and State Ethics Board – Kennedy was executive director of the Elections Board, serving as the chief election officer for the State of Wisconsin since August 1983. Before becoming executive director, he served as legal counsel to that board.
Kennedy previously served as an assistant district attorney in Washington County.
A media panel featuring local professional journalists will interview Kennedy. Questions from members of the audience also will be accepted near the conclusion of the luncheon.
The Milwaukee Press Club presents the Newsmaker Luncheons to shed light on issues of the day. The public is invited to attend the luncheons. The cost to attend is $15 for MPC members, $20 for non-members, $10 for students. Lunch is included. Seating will be limited.  Pre-registration and advance payment is required and may be done online at www.milwaukeepressclub.org.
