Local Physician Declares for 23rd Senate District
Sheridan, WI – Today, Chris Kapsner announced his candidacy for state senate, running as a Democrat to represent the people of Wisconsin’s 23rd Senate District.
“As an ER physician, I know how to handle a crisis and help people in their toughest moments,” said Kapsner. “I’m ready to take that experience to the state senate and make the tough decisions to strengthen our communities. Whether we are talking about making health care more accessible, investing in our public schools, or repairing our aging infrastructure, it is time for us to get back to the basics and prioritize the people of Wisconsin.”
Chris is a leading member of a group of doctors who provide emergency services to hospitals in Western Wisconsin, Minneapolis, and St. Paul. The organization serves numerous hospitals and employs hundreds in the region. Chris works as a medical director for a major hospital.
Chris is passionate about improving healthcare and has spent a considerable amount of his career teaching emergency medicine to train doctors on the skills necessary to provide quality care. He is looking forward to the opportunity to apply his experience and understanding of healthcare and the challenges of rural Wisconsin to the role of legislator.
“As a physician and a father, I have seen the opportunities and the challenges we have here in Wisconsin,” said Kapsner. “I look forward to the chance to talk to the voters of the 23rd District about their vision for the future of our region.”
