Our Path Forward.
Wisconsinites are far more than their party affiliation—Republican or Democrat—they are people with shared values facing pressing challenges every day.
Jodi knows that our community doesn't need another politician playing the party lines, we need a leader who will take action and build a coalition to better our lives and the lives of our children.
It's time to get the Senate back to work for the people of Wisconsin.
Strengthening Our Democracy
In recent years, we have seen unfounded claims of election fraud, “anonymous objections” on controversial projects, voter suppression, and gerrymandered voting maps all undermine the public’s trust in our democracy.
Jodi cares deeply about restoring and protecting this trust. She will advocate for government transparency, fair maps, reducing unreasonable barriers for eligible voters, will support local election officials and call out misinformation for what it is. Jodi will be an advocate for any legislation that makes it easier for Wisconsinites to vote and will fight back against any attempts to reduce access to the ballot box.
Protecting Women's Health
Jodi knows reproductive rights are human rights and decisions about pregnancy and healthcare should be made between a woman and her doctor, not by politicians in Madison. Jodi will vote to repeal Wisconsin's 1849 abortion ban, expand affordable reproductive healthcare access, and fight back against any attempts to prosecute health care professionals that provide reproductive care.
She also knows this isn’t just about abortion. It’s also about the many unintended consequences of this reckless policy. Women in Wisconsin do not have access to the same healthcare that women in neighboring states do. Jodi knows that’s unacceptable and will fight to change it.
Keeping Our Communities Safe
Jodi knows that keeping our communities safe starts at the local level.
She believes we must prioritize getting local law enforcement the funding and resources they need to prevent crime and protect our communities.
We need to invest in more police officers, in clearing the backlog in our court system, in addiction and mental health services, and in community-based crime prevention.
Growing Our Economy
As a longtime business owner, Jodi understands the supply chain disruptions and worker shortage problems that are hurting our small businesses and affecting families statewide. Having fought for decades to keep their factory here in Wisconsin, including through the hard times of recessions and the pandemic, she'll put Wisconsin businesses and workers first, not overseas ones.
While others talk about creating good Wisconsin jobs, Jodi has done it. She knows what it takes to grow our local economy, combat rising costs, and create good-paying jobs.
Safeguarding Our Environment
Jodi has spent her career building coalitions to protect our natural resources and preserve our environment for generations to come. In Madison, she will continue to serve as an environmental champion, working to ensure our kids and grandkids have a clean and sustainable future.
Right now, we have a tax code that does not work and a state budget surplus that provides us with an amazing opportunity to fix it.
We need to provide meaningful relief to the middle class. Jodi will prioritize reducing the tax burden on working families across our state and ensuring that the highest earners pay their fair share.
