It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve you since my 2014 election as the Representative of the 19th Assembly District. I’ve fought for progressive values in the legislature — by funding mental health services, supporting our public schools, and pressing for other important causes. Although I’ve pushed hard for these goals in the past Session, much more work must be done.
So I’m now running for re-election — to continue fighting for crucial public school funding; for better mental health and elderly support services; for an increased and realistic minimum wage of $15 an hour; for a common-sense criminal justice system; for nonpartisan redistricting; and for other reforms.
In the legislature, I addressed…
Mental Health Services, by fighting to increase Wisconsin’s funding for critical mental health and substance abuse services.
Education, by opposing the MPS Takeover Plan, and by introducing legislation to enhance SAGE (Student Achievement Guarantee in Education), which assures individual attention for every student to help them succeed, by reducing class sizes.
Unwelcome Privatization, by introducing AB915 and helping defeat the brazen effort to privatize local water quality and supply systems.
Seniors in Distress, by helping pass legislation to improve care for those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Again, I’m honored to serve our District —
