Issues

There are many issues that need to be addressed in the State of Wisconsin such as jobs, public education, health care, workers rights, and veterans issues to name a few. I will be addressing all of these issues throughout the campaign so please check back often.

I have authored or co-authored legislation that directly impacts the citizens of the 20th Assembly district on a number of issues.

  • Voucher School Accountability – Led to the closing of over 50 sub-par voucher schools.
  • Veterans Board Geographical Appointment – Led to the appointment of a Cudahy veteran being appointed to the Wisconsin Board of Veterans Affairs.
  • Equal Pay Enforcement Act
  • Birth Control Protection Act – Women can no longer be denied contraceptives by a pharmacist.
  • Regulation of Puppy Mills
  • Oral Chemotherapy bill – Requires insurance companies to cover oral medications for cancer patients.
  • Youth Baseball Property Tax Exemption – Granted a property tax exemption for non-profit baseball leagues serving children in the state.

During my time in the Assembly I was instrumental in saving the Hoan Bridge and in obtaining the funding to upgrade the railroad tracks near Kinnickinnic and Nicholson.
