Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Stencil's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Let’s collaborate with the Universities and our Technical Colleges to stay on top of employment needs in our community. Let’s pay special attention to what we will see emerging as a workforce in the future. Let’s also work to keep it diverse. I feel our strong community should be comprised of manufacturing, health care, as well as retail. Let’s not overlook tourism. When people come and see what we have to offer, they often return!"

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "While I feel the Affordable Health Care Act is wonderful, I think the state of Wisconsin should have accepted the federal money to help. Our state government is not saving anyone anything by not accepting it. It simply went to another state. I do not feel that small and medium businesses should shoulder a large burden for health coverage. I would do what I can to work with others to reduce this burden. The state is able to provide tax credits for businesses. There is also a small business health options program (SHOP). Health care is a basic human right and it is something we need to work together to provide. Most of all, we need healthcare that respects women, allowing them to make their own health care choices."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Fair funding for schools is sustainable and transparent. Fair funding takes into account family income, poverty and, for our area especially, it will help to strengthen education and transportation worries for our already hurting rural schools. Fair funding requires accountability in education which leads to increased graduation rates making for a college and career ready student."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "Environmental damage takes many forms. We must all be good stewards of the air, land and water. We need to conserve these as well as invest in cleaner energy. What we do to the environment comes back to hurt us in many forms."
