Priorities

Healthcare

Brad knows that access to quality and affordable health care continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing Wisconsin families. We must continue to level the playing field by increasing access to quality care and lowering costs for everyone. Brad will fight to preserve Medicare, invest in rural health care infrastructure, protect individuals with pre-existing conditions, and lower prescription drug costs.

Brad knows that we have no time to waste when it comes to healthy communities. That’s why Brad has introduced legislation in the State Senate to create Wisconsin’s first-ever Office of Prescription Drug Affordability.

Robust Infrastructure

After years of cutbacks and underfunding, it’s time to invest in our water infrastructure, fix our roads, and get back to building things. Brad knows the best way to jumpstart economic recovery is by getting people back to work and pursuing more sustainable revenue sources to improve public infrastructure.

In Congress, Brad will support additional funding to improve our transportation network, fix national highways, and repair Wisconsin’s bridges and public infrastructure.

Broadband

Slow or non-existent internet has become a fact of life for too many rural residents. It needs to become a thing of the past, and Brad won’t stop until we fix it.

As a member of Governor Evers Taskforce on Broadband Access, Brad worked hard to bridge the rural-urban divide by successfully advocating for a $129 million investment broadband expansion—the largest in state history.

In Congress, Brad will use his passion and breadth of knowledge on this issue to leave politics at the door and help bring reliable internet to rural communities across the country.

Seniors

Every working family wants to give their parents, godparents, and elders the help they need to retire with dignity and comfort. Brad will support eldercare providers and seniors and work to make sure nobody gets priced out of essential services like at-home care our nursing home residency.

He also knows that investing in the Care Economy creates new economic opportunities for working families. When a new facility can open, or an existing one can expand—we create good-paying jobs. Brad will support efforts to ensure nurses, administrators, and care staff have the resources they need to succeed.

Strong Economy

Too many Wisconsin families are struggling to make ends meet. It’s time to reevaluate corporate tax breaks, level the playing field, and provide greater economic opportunities for working families.

Brad is committed to making childcare more affordable, raising worker wages, expanding workplace flexibilities, and strengthening family medical leave protections so that everyone who works hard can get ahead.

Education

Excellent education is a cornerstone to Wisconsin’s success. Brad believes that everyone deserves access to a high-quality education from childcare and 4K to high school and post-secondary. After years of cuts, he understands that we need to restore Wisconsin’s position as a leader in education. Brad will work hard in Congress to strengthen our local schools, retain quality teachers, and invest in modern facilities.

The Third Congressional District is fortunate to have 14 best-in-class colleges and universities. However, Brad knows that for students to unlock their full potential, they can’t be discouraged by a mountain of debt. So he will find solutions to tackle the debt crisis, decrease the cost of education, and level the barriers to entry for people of all backgrounds.

Family Farms

Growing up on a farm, Brad learned at a young age that when times are tough, you pull together as a family and as neighbors, and you move forward – Together. Agriculture is more than just a farmer’s business; it’s a supply chain that employs one out of every nine people in Wisconsin and serves as the bedrock for local economies across the state.

Brad knows that farmers are the backbone of our state. But, unfortunately, we are losing too many. So, as your Congressman, he will use his breadth of experience in agriculture to create new market opportunities, increase research and development capabilities, and invest in our rural infrastructure.

Clean Air, Land & Water

Wisconsin has an opportunity to become a leader in conservation efforts, prevent water contamination, reduce carbon emissions, and lessen the impact of climate change. Brad is committed to restoring environmental protections, investing in sustainable energy production, and pursuing long-term sustainability solutions to ensure access to clean air, land, and water for generations to come.

Voting Rights

Voters should pick their representatives, not the other way around. Brad will support legislation to ensure fair elections, restore voting rights, end gerrymandering, and create a transparent, non-partisan redistricting process. He will also work to protect voting access, including vote-at-home systems like vote-by-mail and early voting.

Veterans

The men and women who serve our country honorably deserve our support abroad and when they come home. Brad will work to ensure that veterans get efficient, state-of-the-art healthcare through the VA, access to family-supporting jobs that will benefit from their leadership experience, and GI funds to pursue higher education.
