  • Joel Jacobsen is challenging Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos for the second time to improve access to healthcare, protect the environment, and lower the middle class tax burden. Jacobsen believes in Medicaid expansion, fully funding public schools, investing in technical colleges, and investing in renewable energy. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has been largely responsible for creating partisan gridlock in Madison. He is responsible for the laws passed in the 2018 lame duck session, the weakening of what once were landmark environmental protection regulations, the failure of the Assembly to respond adequately to the COVID-19 crisis and the resulting economic crisis, and much more. Jacobsen is the more progressive choice.
