“I am ready to get back to work and help the people of my district as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 crisis.

Whether it’s lowering the cost of prescription drugs, protecting senior citizens, or expanding rural broadband access across the state, there is a lot of work that needs to be done.”
“The past year has been hard on all of us. Above all it has laid bare the inequalities that exist in our government and our economy. However, despite everything that has happened, I am determined to continue my work in the Assembly and champion the causes of working families in Wisconsin every single day.”
