Why are you running for office?

Boy: I feel like our government is broken and no longer doing what is best for the people of Wisconsin. I feel like rural Wisconsin is often overlooked. After eight years of the same agent, I believe it’s time for a change. With nearly 30 state assemblymen and state senators not running for re-election, we have an opportunity in Madison for real change. I asked a lot of people during the election campaign if they thought our government was a bit broken? In most cases, they replied, “A little?” The 87th Circuit needs a new representative to help Northern Wisconsin.
