We hope that Madison voters will take the time to read these papers and send us your comments. Our intention is to continue issuing white papers on subjects of interest to our community if elected.

We also challenge our opponents to take the time to lay out their positions and ideas in detail so as to help our residents make an informed decision on Election Day.”
