Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: Who are you? Tell us about yourself.
“For more than 18 years, my voice has remained strong, steady, and fierce on issues that matter. In February 2021, I developed my own LLC to provide expert witness, professional forensic interviewing, and consulting services within the legal systems. I created my small business to fill the gap in the system to support child victims, families, and prosecutors that hold offenders accountable.”
“My name is Angie Sapik, I live in Lake Nebagamon, WI. with my husband Nathan and my two children Calvin and Reba. I’m a moderate Republican- I lean heavily right on fiscal issues and I have more centrist viewpoints on social issues. I consider myself a freedom-fighter. I highly encourage individual freedom and lower government intervention.”
