Each and every one of us has a right to live in a safe and secure community.
The most basic role of our state government is to keep you and your family safe from crime and other harm.
We have both a moral and economic obligation to address issues like lead pipes, opioid and heroin addiction, and firearm violence prevention.
Provide a Quality Education for all Wisconsin Kids
Every child deserves a quality education and strong neighborhood schools are a benefit to everyone.
For every $1 spent on public education the potential rate of return to the taxpayer is $8.
Simply put, high-quality programming at K-12 schools, especially in early childhood education, acts as insulation to persistent societal issues, including poverty, crime and joblessness.
Even those who don't have children or whose children are grown enjoy the benefits of higher property values and community prosperity that come with having quality local public schools.
Protect our Shared Water and Land
Our state has a rich history of being a leader in conservation to ensure a healthy environment for our citizens. Our economy and future depend on having a clean environment, diverse wildlife, and clean lakes and streams. From hunting and fishing to tourism and recreation, local communities and businesses depend on our state's unique natural areas to attract visitors and infuse economic growth. In order to ensure future prosperity and opportunity in every corner of the state, we must have safeguards in place and work together to find long-term solutions that will ensure the future health and prosperity of our people and planet.
