Invest in Rural Schools
I understand that our rural schools face unique challenges. That’s why I voted to invest $200 million in our public schools. I know an investment in our classrooms is a direct investment in our children’s futures. I also authored first-of-its-kind legislation to build high-tech workshops in our schools, helping prepare our students for local, in-demand trades.
I understand what it takes to create jobs in northern Wisconsin. Born and raised right here in Tomahawk, I have been building my small business here for nearly three decades. That’s why I supported investing $65 million in worker training initiatives designed to connect individuals with family-supporting jobs.
Focus on Our Community
It’s no secret that northern Wisconsin’s population is rapidly aging. I helped lead recent efforts to invest in research and care for those suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia in rural Wisconsin. I also supported legislation to help those in our community battling drug addiction.
Reduce Fraud and Waste
You work hard to provide for your family and I am hard at work protecting your tax dollars from waste and fraud. By supporting drug testing and reforms to Wisconsin’s entitlement programs, I am committed to reining in waste in state government.
