I will work towards:
Investing in our communities such as accessible healthcare, including mental health care, reliable internet access, and quality education. These investments are essential for the well being of our families, economic development, and overall quality of life.
Keeping Wisconsin beautiful with plentiful forests, clean air and clear water. This is not only valuable to us who camp, fish, hunt, and enjoy the beauty in the heart of Wisconsin but also it interjects tourism dollars into our local economy. Conservation efforts protect our natural resources so we can continue to enjoy them for years to come, ensure our families stay healthy, and sustain our local businesses.
Creating an economy that works for all of us not just the big corporations. We need to have authentic conversations with our farmers and create solutions so they can provide for their families and keep the farm. We can diversify our local economies to include the arts, tourism, and selling local goods. We can work across the district to promote a regional economic strategy. These actions will ensure a vibrant and diverse economy from the farms to Main Street.
Ensuring equality for all. The United States, and so Wisconsin, was created with the ideal that all are created equal. We need to make sure we have policies in place to protect the life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all no matter what you look like, where you live, or who you love.
Fair Maps are essential to our democracy because it ensures that the people vote for their elected officials rather than elected officials choosing their districts so they can stay in power. In 2011, the Republican controlled legislature drew maps that overwhelming benefited Republicans. In 2021, the legislature will have the opportunity to draw new district lines based on the 2020 census. There needs to be non-partisan redistricting; neither Democrats or Republicans should be able to pick their voters and override democracy.
