We need your support!
Continues to be an honor representing the 70th District!
"The enthusiasm and support for the campaign so far has been outstanding and I'm very thankful for that. I plan to carry the momentum forward and hope to have the opportunity to continue to serve.
Increasing access to healthcare, expanding broadband internet access, investing in our local roads, and keeping taxes low remain top priorities. We've proven time and again in Wisconsin that removing bureaucratic burdens for workers and job creators, combined with responsible budgeting, allows us to make investments in our local communities. That includes investments in a quality education for our children, career and workforce development programs, and taking care of our most vulnerable, including seniors and their caretakers.
To say this is a unique time is an understatement. The fall-out from COVID-19 and some of the actions that have been taken as a result of it by state and local leaders has turned people's lives upside down. Many individuals here in the district have lost their jobs through no fault of their own, and have not been able to receive their unemployment benefits because of a floundering Department of Workforce Development.
I hear from those individuals every day, and my office is working hard to assist them in any way we can. It is unacceptable that folks are not receiving basic government services and the compensation they're entitled to. Right now, a top priority is continuing to do whatever I can to make sure those individuals get their benefits as soon as possible."
Nancy worked very hard as a leader or supporter of many key legislative issues:
Authored and passed legislation that incentivizes investment in underserved rural and urban areas in the state and makes it easier for current and former military members and their spouses to continue to work in their chosen profession when living in Wisconsin.
Focused legislative efforts on investments in University of Wisconsin College of Life Sciences (CALS) researchers that work with farmers throughout the state in a variety of specialty areas and increasing access to Physician Assistants for those seeking care.
