It’s getting crowded. Here’s the press release.
Today, Rachel Mixon made it official! She will be a candidate for District #59 of the Wisconsin State Assembly. The 59th includes Northern Washington, Eastern Fond du Lac, Western Sheboygan and Southern Calumet Counties.
She is looking to fill the very large shoes of retiring Representative, Jesse Kremer. Mixon, who is currently serving as an Alderperson on the Hartford’s Common Council representing District 3 since 2012, was asked to run by her peers. She will run as a Republican. A demonstrated and dedicated conservative, Mixon considers it a great honor to even be considered and encouraged by her peers to serve the people of the 59th.
Mixon comes from a long line of family members who have faithfully answered the call to give back to their local communities. After much consideration and soul searching, as well as receiving input from friends, neighbors and the Divine, the decision was made.
Since graduating from Cornerstone University (MI) in 1997, where she obtained her teaching degree, Rachel has been a professional educator at Brookfield Academy for 21 years and has been promoted to Department Chair. In her professional career, Mixon made her mark by demanding excellence from herself, her students, and those around her. In her six years on the Council of the largest population center in the district, Mixon has gotten to know how local government works. She was instrumental in planning the current police building without having to raise taxes. Mixon hopes to take her council experience to Madison.
Rachel Mixon will always make herself accessible to those in the District and plans to visit as many Village and Town meetings as possible before the primary so that she can meet those whom she would be serving, and more importantly, learn of their concerns and needs.
In addition to focusing on Education and Education Reform issue solutions, as a Representative, Mixon will work with the districts’ farming communities! Rachel has lived in the district for over 14 years with her supportive family which includes her husband, Dave and son, Luke, 17. She will work tirelessly to ease the farm family’s transition from one generation to the next. “Farm families should not be burdened by excessive taxes when transferring farm ownership. The family farm has been and will always be the backbone of this country. I have great respect for farmers who are willing to sacrifice their time, talents, and long hours working the soil in order to feed their families as opposed to those of us who have chosen a much easier and lucrative career.”
The primary election is AUGUST 14, 2018!
