Assembly candidate to hold Town Hall sessions in Plymouth and Sheboygan

27th Assembly District candidate Nanette Bulebosh is inviting members of the public to discuss state issues of concern with her at events in Plymouth and Sheboygan on Thursday, Nov. 3.

The events, called “A Conversation with Nanette,” will take place from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Gathering Room of the Generations Intergenerational Center, 1500 Douglas Drive, Plymouth, and from 5:30 to 6:30 in the Rocca Meeting Room of Mead Public Library, 710 N. Eighth St. Sheboygan. Light refreshments will be served. The 5:30 p.m. session will be livestreamed on the Nanette for Assembly Facebook page.

“I’ll have a few prepared remarks, but I hope to spend most of each hour doing what I intend to do if elected to office,” Bulebosh said. “Simply listen. This is important for any public servant, but doubly so for a lawmaker.”

Bulebosh, 58, of Elkhart Lake, is making her first bid for state office in the Nov. 8 general election. If elected, she would be the first woman to serve as 27th District representative, and the first Democrat to hold the seat since the early 1980s.

She said one of her top goals, if elected, is to push for non-par- tisan redistricting, similar to what Iowa has had in place for decades. “In 2014, 200,000 more Wisconsin residents voted for Assembly Democrats than Republicans,” she said. “Yet – because of our uneven, hyper-partisan district boundaries - the losing party actually added more seats. That just isn’t right.”

Bulebosh said she felt compelled to run after learning that her opponent voted to divert more than $700 million over the next 10 years from public education to unaccountable private voucher schools.

She also opposes her opponent’s votes to: weaken environmental protections, cut funding for community health centers, dismantle the Governmental Accountability Board, maintain $250 million in cuts to the UW system, weaken rights for workers, refuse to raise the minimum wage, and refuse to enable college graduates to refinance their student loans.

“We need a champion in Madison for children, for parents, for veterans, for workers, and for the elderly and disabled, and I don’t think we have that right now,” Bulebosh said.

“I invited my opponent to cohost a debate or town hall meeting, so that we could debate these issues in front of an audience. But he declined,” Bulebosh said.

Bulebosh has had careers as a high school and college teacher, a public librarian, and as a journalist. Most recently she directed an adult high school program in Milwaukee. She has volunteered for several area organizations, including the Generations Center and Mead Public Library. She has a Master of Education from Lakeland University, and a Master of Library & Information Science from UWM.

Nanette and her husband of 20 years, Hans Kuhn, a dairy farmer, have two children, John and Simone.

The 27th Assembly District includes Plymouth, Elkhart Lake, Glenbeulah, Kohler, Kiel, Howards Grove, Cleveland, the northern part of the city of Sheboygan, much of rural Sheboygan County, and the southern third of Manitowoc County.
