For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Criste Greening, of Saratoga, has announced her candidacy for Wisconsin’s 72nd Assembly District, where she will challenge incumbent, Representative Scott Krug.
Greening is a native of Saratoga, where she graduated from the Nekoosa School District. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where she obtained a bachelors degree in education.
Following graduation, Greening earned her masters from Saint Mary’s University Minnesota.
“Greening has dedicated her time toward giving back to her community where she worked as a special education teacher for over 15 years, leaving the profession in 2015,” a campaign release stated. “She is currently a grassroots community organizer, assisting communities faced with water contamination/environmental concerns. She has become an advocate on behalf of her communities, pushing elected officials to do the right thing.”
Greening says she is running to “serve the people of the 72nd Assembly District and believes wholeheartedly in her campaign slogan ‘People over Party’.”
“Her candidacy is entirely committed to working for the interests and needs of the public, rather than the desires of political parties and special interest groups,” the release added
“I believe an elected official is placed in office to serve the people, not a particular party or political platform. I cannot promise to change the games that are played in Madison, but I can guarantee I will stand strong and honor the wishes of my constituents. If elected, I will be the voice of the 72nd above all else,” said Greening.
“Additionally, topics such as: reinvesting in public education, protecting Wisconsin’s water and natural resources, investing in rural communities, and providing sustainable incomes to working families are just a few of Greening’s campaign focus.”
