I’m ran for governor again in 2022 because the incumbent had demonstrated himself to be incapable of leading Wisconsin on from the more than a decade of political stalemate. He continued the prior administration’s tradition of not having a comprehensive fiscal plan, and he and DPI have inexplicably denied the most current reading science now legislated in almost 20 states. The Conservative Republican candidates pandered to election integrity fiction. Our state's Moderate Republicans deserve representation too.
A bureaucrat, Tony Evers carefully avoids confrontation and he minimizes communication. The governor needs to do the opposite, especially during times of crisis. I recorded a series of short backdrop videos (see Media) in order to more completely inform the legislature and the public about key issues. When you have a high regard for people, you want everyone to know what’s going on so that we can all make the best decisions together.
Elect better candidates! In 2018 I forced Scott Walker into a primary. His fiscal policies had reached the point of diminishing returns after two full terms. Despite raising just $10.00 in outside contributions, I received
38,269 votes - likely the all-time US record! I believe the governor should more fully inform the public and the legislature; advocate our shared stewardship responsibilities; provide desperately needed school leadership, and bring our state back together.
WI has great examples for how to come together. The Progressives championed social justice, jobs, equality and the Wisconsin Idea. And the Lombardi era Packers confronted racism more than half a century ago. That's our heritage and I find it inspiring! Today, WI is literally in the position to determine the future of our Republic. Let's finally move on from 11 years of dysfunctional politics and start appreciating and considering each other again in our responsibilities as citizens.
Wisconsin is one of the last states to move on from antiquated "three cueing" K-2 reading instruction. Pre-service teachers are actually still taught this disproven theory at the UW! A lifelong, bureaucrat, Dr. Evers has determinedly avoided this problem despite our African American 3rd graders (and other subgroups) reading an entire school year behind their counterparts in other states. DPI needs to be directed to support our educators with the most current Science of Reading information essential for all students and teachers to succeed.
It's not about me! It's about the next generation of Americans who live here in our uniquely diverse state.
I find the ideals of our country inspiring. Let's steward the Great American Experiment together.
