A committed progressive who has been endorsed by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Westlund believes in closing tax loopholes that solely benefit large corporations, pulling back sequester cuts that have hit low-income families, and investing in infrastructure that will create jobs and spur economic growth.
“I’m proud to have the endorsement of SNAP PAC because I believe in what they do, connecting students with hands-on opportunities to really engage in the political process. I look forward to working with their Fellows in the 7th Congressional District and helping to build the skill sets of the next generation of progressive grassroots organizers,” Westlund said.
With Westlund in Congress, residents of Wisconsin’s 7th district—and citizens throughout the nation—will have an advocate dedicated to promoting more equal opportunities for everyone. Westlund’s experience as a city councilwoman in Ashland and her time working at a community and economic development non-profit will make her an effective advocate for the people of the 7th Congressional District.
“We’re incredibly excited to support a candidate dedicated to building an economy that serves all Americans and to creating a sustainable food and energy system to fuel our economy,” SNAP PAC Political Director Jacob Wolf-Sorokin said. “Organizing on a campaign with an extensive field operation in such a large district will be a phenomenal experience for our fellows.”
