Dear Editor: I have known and worked professionally with Kriss Marion for over a decade. She is an extraordinary candidate for the 51st Assembly and would serve the interests of our rural communities. She will be on the Nov. 3 ballot opposing incumbent Todd Novak.
With the help of her husband and children, Kriss started and has been operating a small farm business in our district producing food for our local markets. I saw her citizen leadership charge, in 2017, in support of what became known as the “Cookie Bill” and ultimately Senate Bill 271 to make it legal to sell various homemade goods in Wisconsin. This business opportunity seemed like a win-win for farmers and citizens, but the momentum in the Legislature had stalled and failed a few years earlier. Kriss’s work was dedicated, nonpartisan and effective.
Kriss is also now serving her third term as a Lafayette County supervisor (presently 2nd Vice Chair). In that capacity she been involved with the Southwest Wisconsin Groundwater and Geology Study (SWIGG), a publicly funded study to learn more about the quality of our area wells and ground water.
Kriss is an engaged citizen and a strong, fair public leader; and I have a great admiration for her. I hope you will support Kriss Marion to represent us in the 51st Assembly District on Nov. 3.
Town of Wyoming
