Wisconsin State Representatives Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) and Deb Andraca (D-Whitefish Bay) and Kristina Shelton (D-Green Bay) are endorsing Anna Halverson to be the next Representative from District 80.
“At this critical time for our state, we need the passion, experience, and commitment that Anna Halverson will bring to the State Assembly,” said Representative Andraca. “Her leadership with Moms Demand Action to end gun violence, her ability to get things done, and her dedication to protecting reproductive rights are what we need right now. I am enthusiastically supporting her.”
Representative Subeck said, “Anna Halverson is the best choice for State Assembly to fill the big shoes left by Sondy Pope’s retirement. Anna will be a tireless advocate for the issues that matter most to the people in the district. She is a fighter for our shared values, a consensus builder who solves tough problems, and an effective organizer and advocate. I strongly support her in this race.”
“In Anna Halverson, the people of the 80th District will have a champion they can count on to deliver the bold action that it will take to move Wisconsin forward,” Representative Shelton said. “Anna has demonstrated her strong commitment to economic security for all Wisconsinites, including access to healthcare, affordable housing, clean water, and excellent public schools. She knows now is the time for urgent action. I am excited about her candidacy, and I am proud to give her my energetic support.”
“It is an honor to have earned the trust and confidence of these amazing legislators who know best what it takes to be an effective State Representative,” said Halverson. “On the issues that matter so much – ending gun violence, defending reproductive health, supporting our public schools, economic security, and protecting our democracy – Representatives Andraca, Shelton, and Subeck are inspirational leaders.”
