  • Farmer and small business owner Kriss Marion is running to unseat Assembly Representative Todd Novak in the 51st District. Marion would be an advocate for rural issues. She believes we must expand BadgerCare in Wisconsin so that our rural hospitals, which are struggling desperately as a result of the pandemic, can be reimbursed adequately for services provided to the poor and the elderly. Marion will fight to prevent insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions and to bring down skyrocketing prescription prices.She is committed to environmental protection and was named whistleblower of the year for her efforts on the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors to ensure the release of studies on groundwater pollution that other politicians were trying to hide from the press and the public. Her opponent, incumbent Todd Novak, has branded himself as an independent legislator. However, he rarely bucks his party when it counts and holds a number of extremely conservative positions. He has voted for Republican budgets, favors private school vouchers, and voted for making Wisconsin a right-to-work state. Novak has taken big contributions from out-of-state pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies, and voted against capping the price of insulin. Novak has also abused his position as mayor of Dodgeville. Three sources claim that Novak was drunk at a local event and after being warned he shouldn't drive home said, "It doesn't matter because I have a Mayoral Pass. I won't get into trouble." Kriss Marion is the progressive choice.
