Here in Western Wisconsin, we care about what we leave behind for our next generations. I know that to be true, because I have lived here my entire life. I spent most of my adult life working to build a small window cleaning business. But once my children were in school, I also became a dedicated volunteer parent and used my own leadership skills to benefit our schools around Eau Claire. My interest in preserving our environment and our small town led me to be elected the chair of our town board. After serving on various committees locally and statewide, I decided I needed to lend myself to public service in the state legislature. After serving two terms I fell victim to the 2010 TEA party revolution that blindly swept out many good people from office and replaced us with careless and corrupt leaders who went about serving only to protect themselves and their benefactors. I have since continued to organize and activate others around issues we care about in western Wisconsin.
I keep asking; What will my children and their children have to say about my generation and what we have done to their land, water, schools, infrastructure, healthcare and economy? This is why I refuse to give in and give up. The choices made in Madison are not fulfilling the promise of a progressive future for Wisconsin. What I'm seeing happen in Madison is disgraceful and makes me ashamed of our current leaders. Citizens deserve open, clean government. We deserve protections of our rights. We deserve protections of our water and air. We deserve affordable access to healthcare. Our youth deserve an opportunity provided by strong public education. We deserve better! And we will only get what we deserve when we stand together and make elections mean something. I need your help through your contribution. My promise to you is integrity, character, honesty and devotion to making Wisconsin a place we can be proud of again.
