Who I am
Hello, I am Jessica Katzenmeyer and I am a Democrat running for the 15th Assembly District in West Allis and New Berlin! I am proud to be the second ever transgender woman to ever run for assembly in the history of Wisconsin! This is my bio: – UWM Alum Class of 2002 with a degree in Communications and minor in Political Science – Emerge Wisconsin Class of 2017 Alum – LGBTQ Victory Institute Alum – Former actress and podcast show host – Author of the blog series Crossing the Line which documents Jessica’s survival of domestic violence – Served 3 years as elected secretary for the Teamsters Local 344 Political and Legislative Committee -Served 5 years on the UPS Safety Committee and 3 years on the UPS Employee Relations Committee
Why I am Running
I am running because I have always been passionate about wanting to help and serve people. I am running because last year at the age of 41, I almost dies from a staph infection in my lungs. I was in the hospital for a week that saved my life. When I got out of the hospital, my bill would have been $80,000 if I did not have insurance. No one should ever have to worry about filing for bankruptcy or going into debt because of medical bills that saved their life. Finally I am running because the current republican leadership in Madison does not represent truly what the people want. We need to bring representation back to the people where it belongs which is the roots of our Democracy.
