State Assembly - District 68
Locale: 
Altoona, Eau Claire, Fall Creek
Type of Seat: 
Challenger
Year: 
2008
Status: 
Elected

Kristen Dexter ran an aggressive, smart campaign for the 68th Assembly seat. Kristen was a star campaign volunteer for Pat Kreitlow, a Progressive Majority candidate elected to the state Senate in 2006. Kristen ran because she wants to bring needed change to Madison, holding state representatives accountable to the people rather than big business or special interests.
Kristen's commitment to children and families in the Chippewa Valley is evident. She was elected to the Altoona School Board in 2001 and has served as Clerk of the Board since 2004. She also serves on the Regional Steering Committee for Health Literacy Wisconsin. Kristen learned the value of hard work growing up on her family's farm. She thinks it is time to put an end to the petty bickering in Madison and to get to work solving the problems that we face as a state. As state representative, she will continue to work for health care reform, to improve the economy, and to keep our education system strong in order to prepare our kids for the future.
