Government has a function to make our community safe and to create an environment where we all have an opportunity to succeed. Everyone has personal preferences on how people should live, but preferences don't justify impositions.  The heavy hand of government ought to be used sparingly and only with clear goals and with specific plans to address important needs.  As your Senator I will aim to keep taxes low, cut red tape, and keep our community safe for you to work, live, and achieve.

Public Safety and Accountability

Law enforcement serves a critical role in protecting and serving our community. Most men and women in blue perform their duties admirably and want to see every member of their community thrive. We need to ensure that these officers continue and are rewarded for their upstanding service while holding those that cause issues accountable.


Making Government Work for Wisconsin


​Families, charities, and even government can only succeed when armed with a clear mission objective.  Keeping government focused and efficient will create an environment for all Wisconsin residents to succeed. 


As a small business owner, I know how much obtuse regulatory schemes can keep Wisconsinites from starting that next step in their personal journey. I will ensure that bureaucratic red tape does not keep families from putting food on their table or local entrepreneurs from following their dreams of opening a successful business.


  • Ensure that every government program has a clear mission goal and is efficiently executing their duties. 

  • Targeted regulatory reforms (or Eliminating burdensome red tape) to promote innovation and increase participation in the economy.

  • Reduce the financial burdens on residents and businesses so families in Wisconsin can thrive.

Investing in our local community
In the State Senate I have been instrumental in achieving practical and transformative investments for the community.  While a member of the Joint Finance Committee helping draft the state's budget, I was able to obtain funds for the Southern Bridge to transform opportunity in the district.  I also obtained funding, and drafted grant legislation, for PFAS remediation efforts that will secure long term health and prosperity in the area.

Promoting Business Development and Economic Growth


Businesses need a low cost, stable environment to thrive, which in turn helps our community thrive. I believe we should strive to reduce bureaucracy and red tape to help these community institutions withstand inflationary pressures and difficult business climates.  I'm proud to have voted to finally repeal the personal property tax on businesses.

  • Ensure that there is a competitive business environment here in our state.

  • Reduce bureaucratic red tape to keep businesses focused on serving their customers and keeping the community safe.

  • Pass a targeted tax relief to help main street businesses survive.​

Supporting Our Farmers


Wisconsin has a proud tradition of farming, an industry that contributes more than $100 billion annually to our state’s economy. Wisconsin farmers want to put in a hard days work, provide for their families, and act responsibly. But in the current environment, WIsconsin is at risk of losing this industry, and our family farms, forever.


Far too often our farmers do the responsible thing and reach out to state agencies for guidance only to traverse bureaucratic red tape. Our state should be working with our farmers, not against them, and that starts with ensuring agencies have a clear priority to provide advice and streamlining the regulatory process so our farmers spend the bulk of their time tending to their fields and animals, not filling out piles of paperwork.

I'm proud to have obtained $125million to help farmers and others get clean water and remediate PFAS contamination from biosolids containing those chemicals.  I drafted an expansive grant program for PFAS remediation, and made sure to include provisions that prevent innocent landowners, like farmers who took biosolids, from being ruined by DNR remediation orders.

We also will arm our farmers with the most up to date research on soil management and runoff mitigation, to keep them competitive on the global stage. Finally, we need to ensure that we keep agriculture taxes low, to keep our struggling farmers from choosing between tilling that last field or putting food on the table for their families.

Common Sense Transportation for NE Wisconsin


During my time as a long-haul truck driver, I logged more than 120k miles on the road. I have seen all of Wisconsin roads, from the pristine freshly laid pavement in SE Wisconsin to the struggling rural roads right in our backyard. 

I believe our state needs to look at both our revenue streams as well as DOT practices to ensure we have a stable income stream and that taxpayer resources are being used responsibly. I also want to ensure that Northeast Wisconsin sees the same investment that Madison and Milwaukee County receive year after year. That means continued investment in local road aids and the construction of the Southern Bridge.

  • Ensure a stable transportation revenue stream and accountability with taxpayer dollars.

  • Investing in local NE Wisconsin Roads and construction projects.

  • Continue to support the Southern Bridge construction and connecting roadways

Promoting Education that supports our youth


Education should be focused around important critical thinking skills and marketable skills. Our education system needs to put children at the forefront of the planning process. This includes investing in trades education and dual enrollment courses. Doing so will allow students to enter school with a number of credits completed well in advance of their tuition being due. 
  • Keep tuition low to ensure economic certainty for students and families.
  • Encourage K-12 University partnerships to get students credits before enrolling at a 2 or 4 year institution.
  • Stop SEL and DEI in Schools

Creating real PFAS solutions

Wisconsin is facing the unprecedented challenge of increasing PFAS levels in our environment. Whether that be from the local businesses, field runoff, firefighting foam, or city wastewater, this challenge poses a serious risk to our environmental and personal health and demands an innovative solution.
The state needs to provide residents, local governments, and businesses with high-quality, accurate information to adjust their conduct to best practice standards. Innocent landowners should not feel threatened with financial ruin being called an "emitter" simply because a pollution plume travels through their land by no fault of their own.  Finally, we need to mitigate the current damage posed by PFAS and clean up our local waterways.
Clean water is something we can all get behind and it requires a collaborative approach. I will bring together lawmakers, scientists, and business leaders to craft that solution and to keep our communities flourishing for generations to come.
  • Bring together lawmakers, experts, and the business community to develop best practices.
  • Get accurate information to the public about PFAS and provide them resources necessary to pursue harm to their property or health.
  • Clean up existing PFAS hazards with a sound budgetary approach.
  • Make sure innocent landowners and pollution victims don't get held responsible by antiquated laws and bureaucratic overreach.  

Advocating for wisconsin veterans

Wisconsin has a long tradition of honoring the men and women who have dedicated their lives to defending our nation. Our state should continue to leverage the resources available to us to serve our veteran population, whether that be those who last donned the uniform decades ago or others just returning from overseas. 
In Madison, I will be committed to reaching across the aisle to find solutions for veterans in need and guarantee they receive the resources they have rightly earned.
Our veteran community went abroad to serve us, they shouldn’t have to go it alone here at home. Robust state resources and a welcoming community can only begin to repay the debt of service we owe our veteran community.
That includes supporting our County Veterans Service Officer (CVSO) to ensure that our veterans have a hand in navigating available benefits, reforming inefficiencies at the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs to keep response times low, and make sure that King’s Veterans Home has the resources it needs to provide end of life care to our states veteran population.
