“These past six years have been incredibly productive, as we’ve witnessed the positive direction in which our state is moving. I’m proud to have played a role in that. We’ve come a long way, but we’re not done yet. I am honored to have had the chance to represent the people of northcentral Wisconsin, and I hope to continue to do so come this November.”
Felzkowski has led the charge in the Assembly on a variety of issues. For education, she has fought to increase aid for frugal, low-spending school districts such as Antigo, Merrill and Tomahawk.

As a member of the Joint Committee on Finance, the state’s budget writing committee, she has had the opportunity to bring Northwoods values to Madison.
