Joan Pougiales, Menomonie

Although I have not been politically active most of my life – beyond voting, staying abreast of the issues, and discussing them with family and friends – I am feeling that level of involvement is no longer sufficient when I see what has happened to the state of democracy in general in this country, and in Wisconsin in particular. Our current state legislature seems bound and determined to take away all of our rights to make our own local decisions, instead raising the interests of dark, unaccountable money over the interests of the citizens of the state. Although I have spent most of my life in language and culture education (currently teaching in and coordinating programs at the University of Wisconsin-Stout ESL Institute), and working with adult refugees from around the world, I feel it may finally be time to put my undergraduate major in political science to work in my community.
