"Improving Wisconsin's Social and Economic Health"

Senator Kelda Roys, Representative Samba Baldeh, Representative Francesca Hong, Senator Melissa Agard

What are the priorities of the Madison-area’s four newly elected lawmakers?  And how are they planning to improve the state of our state? What would you like to see from them regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the next state budget, and legislation to advance racial justice in Wisconsin? 

We will hear from each of our guest legislators individually, and you have the opportunity to let them know what public policy changes you think will improve Wisconsin’s overall well-being.  

State Senator Kelda Roys (D-Madison) represents Wisconsin’s 26th Senate District.   A former state representative, attorney, and small business owner, she also served as executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin.  Senator Roys replaces Senator Fred Risser, the longest serving state legislator in the nation, who did not seek re-election. 

State Senator Melissa Agard (D-Madison) represents the 16th Senate District.  She is a former State Representative serving the 48th Assembly District since 2013.  She replaces Senator Mark Miller who did not seek re-election. 

State Representative Samba Baldeh (D-Madison) represents the 48th Assembly District.  He is an IT project engineer and currently in his third term on the Madison Common Council.  He is the first Muslim and first immigrant elected to the Wisconsin State Legislature and the first Black man elected to the legislature from Dane County.  

State Representative Francesca Hong (D-Madison) represents the 76th Assembly District.  She is a restauranteur, service industry worker, community organizer and the first Asian American to serve in the Wisconsin State Legislature.
