WOW! We are blown away by the support we've received from so many of you in the first few days of our campaign. Thank you so much. We're grateful for each and every one of you, and we will work hard to deliver the thoughtful representation you deserve.
We just wanted to take a moment to share some of the reasons why elected officials and community leaders are supporting Kelda.
Representative Lisa Subeck: "In this seat, we need an experienced legislator. Kelda has the skills and dedication to hit the ground running and deliver what our constituents deserve. I know her passion and progressive values, but it’s her abilities and record that make her the best person to succeed Sen. Risser.”
Senator Lena Taylor: “Kelda is a champion and a fighter for the people. As a colleague, I know how hard she works. I know her fight, I know her intellectual capital, I have watched her over the years have courage to do what is right, when others would not. She’d make a great senator and would inspire so many. We need her passion and experience in the State Senate. I enthusiastically support Kelda Roys for Senate!”
Madison Alder Sheri Carter: “Kelda is an experienced legislator and caring community leader. She is passionate about affordable and fair housing, and economic and racial justice. I’m proud to support her as our next State Senator.”
Madison Alder Amanda Hall*: “Kelda is the sort of person who gets up 5 times a night to nurse her newborn while running for governor and representing her legal and real estate clients, and that is the kind of force of nature I want in the capitol.”
Madison Alder Matt Phair*: “Kelda is the exact type of person I want to represent us in the Senate. She is a pragmatic progressive who has a history of fighting for the values we hold dear and experience bringing different interests together to achieve results. In this time of uncertainty, our community is yearning for a principled leader who can get things done. Kelda is that person!”
Madison Alder Denise DeMarb*: “I’m thrilled to support Kelda for State Senate. Kelda has vision for our future and the drive to see it through. Now more than ever a proven leader is needed in the Senate. At this time of uncertainty, Kelda gives me hope that we can solve our challenges.”
Madison Alder Mark Clear*: “Kelda has the tenacious yet compassionate leadership style we need serving us in the legislature. She is ideally suited to carry Fred Risser's legacy forward.”
Madison Alder Chris Schmidt*: “It’s not enough to have progressive values - we need a state senator who will build effective coalitions and work tirelessly to elect a Democratic majority. I’ve seen Kelda in action and know she is by far the best candidate to bring the energy and skills we need to the Senate.”
Madison Alder Lauren Cnare*: "There is no one better than Kelda to represent us. She has varied and immediately applicable experience in our government and our community. She’s able to get right to work, leading on the issues that are important to me and my neighbors.”
Dane Co. Supervisor Tim Kiefer: “Kelda is an intelligent, collaborative, and thoughtful leader. She was my State Representative and has always been responsive to her constituents. Kelda is the proven leader we need right now. I strongly endorse Kelda Roys for State Senate.”
