In these difficult times, we need a leader in Madison who shares our values and understands our challenges. Kevin Hoyer knows the value of a dollar and he will fight to make sure every dollar Madison spends directly improves our lives. Recent events remind us that our elected officials should fight every day to make sure government always works for us rather than standing in our way.
EASING THE TAX BURDEN
Growing up on a farm, Kevin learned early the value of hard work. He believes people should be able to keep more of what they earn and that politicians should be very studious when spending other people's money. On the La Crosse County Board, he put his money where his mouth is and voted no on doubling his own pay. He also opposed property tax increases and stood against diverting county taxpayer money to the La Crosse Center. He will bring a pro-taxpayer mentality to Madison.
A 21st CENTURY INFRASTRUCTURE
All Wisconsinites depend on decent roads and bridges to get to work and transport goods to market. Increasingly, especially these days, we also need dependable high-speed internet. Kevin understands the challenges we face on both fronts, especially in rural Wisconsin. He will fight for adequate funding to upgrade our physical and digital infrastructure here in Western Wisconsin. With Kevin at the table in Madison, rural Wisconsin will become a priority in the next budget.
COMMITTED TO CONSERVATION
No one understands the importance of protecting our natural resources better than a farmer. Kevin supported efforts to launch a phosphorus reduction program and, as the only farmer on the La Crosse County Board, is the voice of conservation at the county level. He is committed to ensuring clean water and sustainable land management so the next generation of family farmers, hunters, and anglers can enjoy our state's amazing great outdoors the same way we have.
COMMITTED TO YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS
Kevin is a strong advocate for the Second Amendment and a champion of Wisconsin's tradition of responsible firearm ownership. He will stand with law abiding gun owners and fight for this critical constitutional right.
A CHAMPION FOR THE MOST VULNERABLE AND VOICELESS
No person is more vulnerable than someone who has yet to be born, and how we treat them speaks volumes about our values as a society. Kevin stands strong for the right to life, from conception to a dignified natural death.
ACCESS TO GOOD HEALTHCARE
Politicians like to use healthcare as a talking point, but then fail to deliver. Kevin believes government can help expand access to quality care, but too often it sets up roadblocks to innovative solutions. Kevin pledges to work with members of both parties and our region's top-flight health providers to find innovative ways to reduce the cost of quality care while ensuring everyone in our communities has access to it.
QUALITY EDUCATION FOR ALL
A good education that works for each and every child is more important than ever in this global economy. Kevin understands a quality, individually tailored education is the key to our children's success. He will work to make sure our schools are adequately funded. He will also make sure low-income families have the same educational options as wealthy families when deciding where to educate their children.
FAMILY SUPPORTING JOBS
Our economy is changing - elected officials must make sure public policy keeps pace. Kevin will bring a wealth of experience in the rapidly changing agriculture industry to Madison. He will support funding and flexibility for our tech college system, job training programs, and a lighter government footprint on the necks of job creators to make sure employers can create jobs today and connect with workers for the jobs of tomorrow.
