Candidates and Issues WS Assembly District 46 Trish Schaefer

Trish Schaefer - R

Remarks: Hello, I'm Trish Schaefer and I am running for State Assembly because as a parent, homeowner, business owner and fifth generation Wisconsinite, I am concerned about the lack of opportunity here for our future generations.

But, it doesn't have to be this way. I believe Wisconsin CAN become an economic leader. As your State Representative, my priorities will be to root out waste, inefficiency and needless spending in our government; Improve the K-12 education system so our graduates are college- and/or career-ready; and free small business from unnecessary and burdensome regulations, so they can grow and hire.

Furthermore, I will bring my skills as a professionally trained Mediator to the Capitol, where I pledge to work hard to find ways to accomplish mutually acceptable goals that best serve the people of District 46 and Wisconsin.

Thank you and I respectfully ask for your vote on November 6th."
