I support Kriss Marion for the 51st Assembly District race in southwestern Wisconsin.
Marion, in partnership with her family, has been operating a small farm business in the 51st District producing food for local markets. I saw her citizen leadership in support of what became known as the “Cookie Bill” to make it legal to sell various homemade goods in Wisconsin.
Marion and I served on the Southwestern Wisconsin Community Action Program board together. Its mission is to find creative ways, public and private, to serve our region’s most vulnerable populations. I learned how effective Marion can be.
She is serving her third term as a Lafayette County supervisor and is now second vice chair. In that capacity, she has been involved with the Southwest Wisconsin Groundwater and Geology study known as SWIGG. Some officials threatened to draft a resolution that sought to restrict information reporters could share about this publicly funded study. Marion took a firm and courageous stance, unwavering in her support of the public’s right to know.
In every instance, Marion's work has been dedicated, nonpartisan and effective on behalf of citizens of southwest Wisconsin. She is an engaged citizen and a strong public leader. I have great admiration for her. Please support Marion on Nov. 3.
