LETTER: Kober is the man state needs as next lieutenant governor

To Ozaukee Press:
    I would like to tell you why I’m supporting Kurt Kober, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.
    Kurt has spent his career bringing innovative ideas and a fresh perspective to businesses, nonprofits and other organizations. That’s the type of experience we need in a lieutenant governor.
    In an election cycle that can focus on so much negativity, I’m proud to stand behind Kurt’s optimism and vision for the future. He believes in giving all Wisconsinites the opportunity to thrive by investing in Wisconsin public schools in every county, bringing high-speed, low-cost internet across the state and ensuring our environment is protected.
    It’s very easy for candidates to talk about doing things differently, but Kurt has a history of accomplishment in every role in which he has served. Here are a few examples:
    As a student at UW-Green Bay, Kurt was a leader in the effort to transform
the school into a first class university by raising $40 million to build a new sports and activity facility.
    Kurt organized college students across Wisconsin for local, state and national elections as president of Wisconsin College Democrats.
    He co-founded a $4 million Silicon Valley technology startup with his wife Abby, which transformed the design and manufacturing process for a number of consumer products.
    He has spent the last decade working with businesses and organizations to help them change to meet the needs of the new
    We need a person with Kurt’s experience and vision as our lieutenant governor to
fully utilize that office.
