    Issue Position: Veterans

    Jan. 1, 2018

    Our most honorable population are the selfless men and women in uniform who risk everything they have defending the United States of America. It's easy to remember those who are currently serving, but it's equally important to remember those who have come home and need our support. Wisconsin has incredible resources for veterans, including the Veterans Outreach and Recovery Program (VORP). VORP was previously funded by federal grants to provide support to struggling veterans and current service members suffering from mental disorders, drug addiction, and homelessness. When the federal grants ran out, Mary made it a priority to extend the program with state funding, assuring that our honorable men and women would be taken care of for years to come. In addition, she worked to expand the program from 49 counties to all 72 counties statewide, giving every veteran regardless of where they're from a friendly face to help lift them in their time of need. Mary has been, and will continue to be, a voice for our brave veterans who need a helping hand to get back on their feet.

    Issue Position: Education

    Jan. 1, 2018

    Watching her children graduate from Tomahawk High School, Mary understands the utmost importance of our K-12 education system. Most recently, Mary championed legislation that increases investments to less populated, rural districts throughout the state. Schools that have been locked into levy limits dating back to the "90s now have the opportunity to bring more revenue into their districts, allowing them to hire and retain the best teachers and compete with higher spending districts. For the sparse, spread out districts, sparsity aid will bring them more funding to help with transportation costs, allowing for money to stay in the classrooms. As the world revolves around us, we're seeing a society with an increasing need to fill high paying trades positions. Mary has worked to give students and communities a jump start through fabrication laboratories, or fab labs. Fab labs don't just help prepare our children for tech schools and apprenticeships, they teach all of our students a hands-on approach and a can-do attitude. Mary is a firm believer that all children should have the same opportunities to succeed no matter what zip code they live in or what their future plans are.

    Issue Position: Tax

    Jan. 1, 2018

    As a taxpayer and resident of northern Wisconsin, Mary knows the frustrating complexity known as tax season. As your state representative, Mary will continue to be a good steward of your tax payer money by simplifying the tax code, controlling spending, and keeping more of your money in your pocket.
