I am thankful for the work they do for residents of the 43rd Assembly District, and I am proud to have the support of these proven advocates as I seek my third term.

Protecting our environment and natural resources is not only good for recreation and our economy today, it is the right thing to do for the next generation tomorrow. I want to thank the Sierra Club, Clean Wisconsin Action Fund and Wisconsin Conservation Voters for supporting my re-election campaign. It has been a pleasure working with these groups on issues relating to climate change, clean air and water, renewable energy and protecting recreational opportunities. I look forward to working with them and their members next legislative session.”
