MADISON, Wis. - A Wisconsin native and Cross Plains resident has announced her candidacy for governor of Wisconsin, seeking the Democratic nomination, according to a release.
Michele Doolan announced her candidacy Monday afternoon, and said she plans to build a platform around the growing desire of Wisconsin to leave failing party loyalties and squabbles behind to get back to governing basics.
“Wisconsin government isn’t working,” Doolan said in a release. “We feel it, we know it, we see it every day. The people of our state have always been about determination, cooperation, and Midwest values that have been lost in the bickering and partisan fighting.”
Doolan said she will focus on the core needs of Wisconsin workers and businesses, bringing back simple solutions and priorities built on measurable gains and provable outcomes.
