Why I am Running
I’ve spent the past session fighting for a budget that invests in our shared priorities and working to support our public schools, family farmers, working families, and retirees. I’ve authored and coauthored bipartisan legislation to implement non-partisan redistricting and other election reforms, protect our environment, cut red tape for local communities, and improve public safety while reforming our criminal justice system. I look forward to continuing these efforts next year. During the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, I’ve been working to get information and assistance out to district residents, helping people with unemployment benefits, connecting businesses with loans and grants, advocating for support for front-line health care workers, and making people aware of free testing opportunities. The next legislative session will present new challenges as our state recovers from this pandemic and addresses a tight state budget, high unemployment, and a fragile economy. My leadership skills and experience in state and local government will be assets as Wisconsin navigates these challenges.
