Criste is ready to be the true voice of the 72nd District.


It is with great excitement that I announce my intent to run for Wisconsin State Assembly challenging Scott Krug for the 72nd District.


I am running for State Assembly because I believe the constituents of the 72nd deserve representation in Madison reflective of the true voice and beliefs of our collective communities.  


Now more than ever, we need leaders who will put partisan politics aside and work for the citizens of Wisconsin in a civil and responsive way putting the people first.  I am an Independent voter running for office under the Democratic flag.  I am committed to being the true voice of the 72nd District to bring your ideas and concerns to the table.  Working together we can promote change.
