Why are you running for office?
I am tired of the partisanship that has paralyzed our state, tired of the constant attack on public education, and the decimation of our natural resources.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Access to affordable healthcare. Wisconsin continues to turn down federal money for Medicaid expansion. We need to accept federal dollars which will help lower healthcare costs across the state and invest in providing quality healthcare for Wisconsinites in rural areas.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We need representatives who are pragmatic and willing to listen.
Who is your hero?
What are your hobbies?
Reading, golfing, fly fishing, hiking and bicycling
What is the most recent book you read?
The Peacock Emporium by JoJo Moyes
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
Yes, 2 outstanding young women
How can our readers get involved in your campaign?
I am in a district that is very spread out because of gerrymandering. I need people to knock doors, host events so that I can meet constituents, and donate monetarily to my campaign so that I can compete in this race.
