“I have represented the residents of the 75th Assembly District for the past two sessions. Due to redistricting, I am running re-election to the new 67th Assembly to build on the success I had in my first two terms. We need to make sure we keep Wisconsin on the right track and to assure rural Wisconsin is not forgotten. As a state, we’ve made positive reforms, but there’s still more work to do,” added Armstrong. “We must continue addressing the issue of affordable and accessible healthcare, lower property and income taxes, rural broadband access, strengthening our schools, helping individuals to start and expand small businesses, creating additional housing and childcare and helping to create vibrant communities. With my background in both the private sector and local government, I have the experience necessary to find ways to work together and get the job done.”
