Madison, WI- I would like to enthusiastically thank all of the donors, supporters, volunteers, advisors who donated their time, talents, and finances to my campaign for State Representative for Madison’s Isthmus and surrounding neighborhoods. This was a truly a #MadisonMade campaign.

This campaign was a love letter to the grassroots leaders who are doing the work and truly believe in investing and building up youth, right here in Madison. I’m the result of what happens when a community steps up and provides real opportunities for growth for those who are underserved and overlooked by the racist systems at play. I’ve introduced historic policies that will no doubt change the landscape of Wisconsin, and I’m very proud of this. I will continue the work I’ve set out to do as a trusted leader in my community. I am very excited for what the future holds.

Francesca Hong, congratulations. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. I am concerned, however, by your desire to dismantle police unions. This is because you also campaigned for industry workers to unionize, and you also want to bring back collective bargaining rights. Speaking about dismantling a union and unionizing workers in the same campaign—isn’t Madison currently struggling with leadership using these same tactics? An attack on one union is an attack on all unions, and you must understand the consequences of doing so. Dismantling police unions creates a domino effect for all first responder unions and puts the nail in the coffin for any collective bargaining for anyone else.

I will continue to work for youth, educators, social service providers, first responders, entrepreneurs, union workers and families of Wisconsin. I stand by my promise to hold our elected leaders and candidates accountable to stop using low income and Black and Black bodies as talking points while not including them at the table and leaving them with nothing of substance at the end of the day. That ends now.

Thank you for believing in me. The marathon continues.
