Campaign themes


On his 2011 campaign site, Brownlow detailed his policy goals:

  • "With your support, I would like to carry the fight for hard-working, middle class families to Madison. Along with many of you in the 83d Assembly District, I've struggled to make ends meet, to raise my children, to make my house payments. Meanwhile, I watched so many family-supporting jobs leave our area. I've seen the foreclosure signs, the moving trucks and the empty homes. I think that the time has finally come to bring common-sense back to our state government. With your help and your vote, I believe we can put Wisconsin back on the road to hope and prosperity."
