As a teacher in Beloit, the past three years in Wisconsin have been devastating. Funding for our neighborhood public schools has been slashed by record numbers. Students attending private schools statewide are now having their education subsidized by public tax dollars. However, through it all, we have always had Rep. Janis Ringhand standing by our side.

Janis led the charge with educators and local leaders when Gov. Walker tried to bring unaccountable private voucher schools to Beloit. She fought the $1.6 billion cuts that public schools across Wisconsin are grappling with.

Janis also understands that to help working people and expand opportunity, elected leaders must focus on raising wages, supporting and improving schools and creating jobs.
Janis' door is always open. She listens and helps wherever she can. I know Janis is the best candidate to represent us in the state Senate. I'll be voting for Janis Ringhand on Aug. 12.
