Jan 27, 2023 | Wisconsin Voices Blog

1. What’s the biggest issue you’re hearing about from your constituents?

Generally my constituents are concerned about efficient government and keeping taxes as low as they can be, but with the understanding that government does need tax revenue to work for them. There is a general desire to maximize freedom, but a realization laws are needed to keep order and to protect people. More specifically to my district, we need a bridge in the southern part over the Fox River, a port renovation and environmental remediation at the mouth of the Fox River, and solutions for PFAS contamination in the Marinette area and elsewhere that we might find it.

2. If you were King for a day, what reform would you enact?

If I were King for a day I’d abolish divine right and establish a democratic republic.

3. Tell us something that people don’t know about you?

I was a semi-truck driver over the road in between college and law school. For that year I basically just lived wherever the truck took me, grew my hair out, taught myself how to play the guitar and read a lot of philosophy. It was before common cell phone use and easy access to the internet, so I was disconnected from home to see the USA on an adventure in my 18 wheeler.
