Keyes, Gaulke will put people before party

Written by  Staff Writer
To the editor,
There is good news for those residing in the 31st and 32nd Assembly districts. When elected, Brittany Keyes and Katherine Gaulke will end the practice of putting party and politics before people.

It was not uncommon for Reps. Amy Loudenbeck and Tyler August to vote for legislation that constituents within their districts had asked them to oppose. More often than not when I asked Loudenbeck for the count her office had received both for and against a piece of legislation, her vote did not match the wishes of the people she was elected to represent. The two incumbents, Loudenbeck and August, nearly always voted as directed by their leadership in the Assembly.

It is especially troubling that they did not oppose Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General Brad Schimel’s lawsuit to declare the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional. This could block all of the ACA, including the subsidized insurance Marketplace that provides coverage for more than 200,000 Wisconsinites and risking coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. This would mean insurance companies could deny coverage for conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and cancer.

Candidates Keyes and Gaulke will put people first. They will focus on funding K-12 schools and restoring local control to county and municipal governments. They believe in maintaining our roads and infrastructure. These two candidates want to see workers earning a living wage and affordable health care accessible to everyone.

If you want your elected officials to put your needs before politics, then Brittany Keyes and Katherine Gaulke are your choices.
