"Strong public schools are at the heart of our communities and are essential to the strength of our democracy and economy. Wisconsin's high quality schools attract families and businesses and give all students opportunities to succeed. Free, public education is promised to all children in our state constitution. I look forward to bringing my educational experience to Madison to advocate for investment in our region's schools and encourage innovation to empower all schools to meet the future needs of our communities."
