Key Issues

Making a Difference

Everyone deserves a fair chance to succeed. Our nation’s success is built on the founding principles of unlimited opportunity, quality education, commitment to hard work, and the freedom to pursue our dreams. Kristin fights each and every day to ensure that the community is advancing towards meeting these founding principles. 

EDUCATION

Kristin believes a proper, well-rounded education is the right of all children in Wisconsin, no matter their creed, color or sexual orientation.  A proper education involves acknowledging our historical mistakes and embracing our diversity, not expelling it.

JOBS

The need for skilled labor in Wisconsin is massive.  Our economy only thrives if our residents have good paying jobs and our businesses are profitable enough to pay them.   Kristin would like to see a tuition forgiveness program for those coming out of high school who go to a Wisconsin based University or Technical school, graduate in good standing and go to work in one of the fields needed here in Wisconsin for a period of 5 years.  The goal is to entice our youth to stay in WI and continue our prosperity together.

ENVIRONMENT

Kristin believes in science and the necessity to change the way we go about life.  She believes we can take rational steps towards the established timeline of carbon neutrality by 2050.  The climate and our environment are prominent issues that must be addressed and our Education, Infrastructure, and Economic goals should be in line with meeting our environmental goals.

TAXES

There is no perfect answer on taxes.  Everyone expects great schools, roads, parks, sidewalks, and sewer systems, but no one wants to pay more than a minimal amount.  Kristin would like to see this burden shifted to the large retailers and corporations whose profits are soaring, while often evading real estate taxes utilizing the “Dark Store" loop hole 

STATE REVENUE

Since 2016 there have been no inflationary adjustments in the shared revenue program from the state of Wisconsin back to the Municipalities and Public Schools.  While the state brags about 5.6 billion dollars of excess revenue, the municipalities and schools are trying to provide an important level of service to their residence on a shrinking budget, leaving them little option than to ask for increases to the real estate tax base.  This is a shell game of taxpayer money that needs to be corrected.

HEALTHCARE

The Affordable Care Act increased accessibility, but work is still needed. 

We need to reduce the administrative burdens on doctors and nurses so they can spend more time helping their patients. 

Kristin also believes alternative medicine options may provide affordable, non-addictive solutions to add to our traditional protocols
