Mark Harris for Congress

Business as usual in Washington just isn't working. The rhetoric and entrenched positions are not serving the citizens the United States or the people of the 6th congressional district in Wisconsin. Mark Harris vows to break that mold. Mark knows that tackling tough issues isn't always easy but by working with all members of congress and by putting people before politics collaborative solutions can be found.

As Winnebago County Executive since 2005 this self-described "fiscally conservative progressive" Mark has balanced the county's budgets, controlled spending, maintained services and reduced the county's debt. Mark also knows that affordable higher education is crucial to upward social mobility, that seniors need and deserve a modest level of income security and the right to live with dignity, that a strong infrastructure is key to our economy and that the guy on the factory floor should not pay more taxes than the factory owner.

It's time to end the gridlock in Washington. It's not about bigger government, it's not about smaller government, it's about better government. Mark Harris for Congress.

The County nursing home was in two old and inefficient buildings, UW Fox Valley sponsored by Winnebago and Outagamie counties had a critical need for additional and improved engineering space and state support for local government was in decline.
