Representative, District 31

State Representative

  • Longtime teacher Elizabeth Lochner-Abel is running for Assembly to represent the rural community that she has served for 37 years. She wants to expand Medicaid and ensure every Wisconsin student gets a quality education by reducing class sizes, equipping classrooms with adequate supplies, and enable districts to recruit and retain quality teachers. She also believes in investing in rural communities by expanding broadband access, repairing critical infrastructure, and supporting farmers. Protecting natural resources is also a value that Lochner-Abel cherishes. She is facing long-time Assemblywoman Amy Loudenbeck. Although Loudenbeck has talked about public health and health care, she has opposed expanding BadgerCare, criticized Gov. Evers' Safer at Home orders and has been a part of the GOP Assembly majority that has not taken action since April on the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis. While she talks about public health, her actions in the legislature have prevented Wisconsinites from accessing health insurance. Although Lochner-Abel's stances are not as progressive as some other legislative candidates across the state, she is the more progressive choice in this race.
