Representative, District 97

State Representative

  • Democrat
  • City of Waukesha Alderman Aaron Perry believes in changing the public school funding model, nonpartisan redistricting, and gun violence prevention laws like universal background checks and red flag laws. Perry also believes that healthcare is a human right and that there need to be changes to the tax code to assist the middle class, the elderly, and entrepreneurs. He believes that state leaders have too often passed the buck on taxes to municipalities and counties. Perry was once a Republican but became a Democrat because of his distaste for what the party has become since 2016. Incumbent Republican Scott Allen is anti-choice, in favor of voucher programs, against gun violence prevention laws, and wants to reduce taxes and regulations. Allen, who is white, attempted to pass his own resolution commemorating Black History Month that cited mostly white abolitionists instead of a resolution authored by members of the legislature's Black Caucus. Perry is the more progressive choice.
