Boivin:   As a clinical psychologist I have sat with people from all walks of life facing a broad range of problems with living and have a unique perspective on what The People in our cities, our state and country are facing. I have also worked directly with the Wisconsin State Legislature to identify overly burdensome regulations that were getting in the way of addiction treatment and helped draft legislation that removed those barriers. This legislation passed both the State Assembly and Senate unanimously and was signed into law by Governor Walker on April 9, 2018. I value representative government and the role The People play in helping legislators develop sound public policy. I want to bring that experience to The People's House.
