We heartily endorse Nancy VanderMeer for a third term as our representative for Wisconsin’s 70th Assembly District.
Nancy has numerous accomplishments in her first two terms, serving on five legislative committees, including Agriculture, Consumer Protection, Mental Health, and Veterans and Military Affairs. She was chair of the Rural Development Committee this past session.
She joined fellow legislators to promote the Rural Wisconsin Initiative. The initiative focuses on improving education, health care and technology in small towns and rural areas.
Nancy authored the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, Assembly Bill 235, which allows doctors already licensed in a Compact state to practice and helps create, maintain and enhance access to quality health care in our rural communities.
Nancy VanderMeer was a leading proponent of the 2017-2019 budget bill that witnessed the largest investment ever in Wisconsin K-12 education. It increased state aid to school districts by $639 million.
The state budget increased transportation aid for towns by more than 8 percent and increased local bridge funding by $7.5 million each year.
Nancy VanderMeer is a hard worker and a good listener. She works well with colleagues on both sides of the political spectrum. Witness that more than 90 percent of new laws had bipartisan support in the State Assembly.
Nancy and her husband, David Hall, are part of a 200-cow dairy farm operation northwest of Tomah. She understands the needs of her constituents in the 70th Assembly District. We enthusiastically endorse Nancy for a third term in Madison.
