Wisconsin Mother of the Year declares for the 14th Assembly District
"I’m determined to fight For The People on three fronts: people, planet and profit."
Wauwatosa — Small business owner Robyn Vining has announced that she is running in the Democratic primary to represent Assembly District 14, which includes parts of Wauwatosa, Brookfield and Milwaukee. Current Rep. Dale Kooyenga is stepping down from the seat.
“I believe this seat is winnable at a pivotal point for our state and our nation, and I think I’m the best candidate for the job,” Vining said. “With my experience, passion and integrity, I will help heal divides and bring people together to find creative, bipartisan solutions that deliver real change to Wisconsin, and restore the voice of the people to Madison.”
Vining is a former pastor turned entrepreneur who has spent the past nine years building a successful photography business. She recently launched Folio MKE, a collaborative workspace/community for women entrepreneurs. She is a founding board member of Exploit No More, which works to end child sex trafficking, and a founding member of Help Portrait Milwaukee and The Milwaukee Portrait Project, initiatives that serve some of the city’s most vulnerable residents. She was awarded the United Way’s Philanthropic 5 award in 2013 and was named American Mothers’ Wisconsin Mother of the Year in 2017 in recognition of her commitment to the community.
Vining and her family moved to the 14th District a decade ago. She has bachelor’s degrees in psychology and fine/studio arts from James Madison University and a master’s degree in religion from Trinity International University. She lives in Wauwatosa with her husband of 17 years (a professor), their two children (who are awesome), and their rescue boxer.
