Ledgeview physician making waves in race for Wisconsin’s 88th

LEDGEVIEW — Dr. Kristin Lyerly’s 88th Assembly district campaign
raised $40,234.09 in the period ending June 30, a resounding success

Kristin for Wisconsin team is committed to affecting the real, lasting
change voters in this area are demanding. Stay tuned.”
