1. Please describe your priorities for your term in office and your specific qualifications to effectively address those issues. My 1st priority is to enact comprehensive criminal justice reform. We must end the racist War on Cannabis, end mandatory minimum sentencing, support jury nullification, pardon those incarcerated for non-violent drug crimes, expunge the criminal records of those same people, and restore voting rights to those on paper. Let's free people, reunite families, reduce the cost of police and jails. It's only right! My 2nd priority is to end corporate welfare by ending WEDC and the state income tax.

2. What will you do to reduce gun violence and keep our neighborhoods and schools safe? Neighborhoods/schools will be safer when people are more educated about firearms, and learn to defend themselves. Gun violence is down in the U.S. since 1991, and gun ownership rates have increased, but people still need to know more about defending themselves, and their right to do so. Safety issues in neighborhoods/schools should be left to local authorities, who know what's best for their communities. Criminal justice reform will help police have better relationships with their communities.

3. Do you support taking advantage of the federal funding to expand Medicaid and cover more people under BadgerCare? Why or why not? The answer to better, cheaper, more universal health care is to decouple health insurance from employment- portability helps solve the pre-existing condition issue- and decouple insurance from primary care. Insurance unnecessarily increases the cost of primary care. I support subscription primary care services, and getting the market involved to increase choice and competition. While there are many who still need help, let's give them vouchers so they can choose the care appropriate to them.

4. Racial disparities exist in child poverty rates, educational achievement, infant mortality rates, incarceration rates, and other issues facing Wisconsinites. What will you do to reduce racial disparities throughout Wisconsin? The solution to racial disparities is to end the racist War on Cannabis. If we do so, and follow the criminal justice reform plan I've laid out, there will be fewer people in jail, families will be reunited, fewer children will live (and die) in poverty, more people will be working and supporting families, educational outcomes will improve, less money will be spent on jails, police, social services, and economic supports, and the communities suffering most will have a chance to thrive.

1. Please describe your priorities for your term in office and your specific qualifications to effectively address those issues. Reduce government interference in people's lives Increase local control Increase personal choice and freedom

2. How do you propose to balance economic development with protection of natural resources? Protecting natural resources is vital for the tourism industry, but I favor solutions that do not impede reasonable business practices or violate property rights.

3. What criminal justice reforms would you support that would decrease recidivism and reduce the prison population? End the War on Drugs Pardon non violent drug offenders Expungement

4. What will you do to reduce gun violence and keep our neighborhoods and schools safe? I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment
