Daniels to oppose Jagler in 2018 assembly election

May 10, 2018

Watertown resident Charisse Daniels has announced her candidacy for Wisconsin’s 37th Assembly District, and will oppose its incumbent State Rep. John Jagler in the November 2018 election.

Daniels is a Program Instructor for a local family resource center in Watertown. She has nearly a decade of experience working with local non-profit organizations in leadership roles. She has served on numerous statewide boards and advisory committees, including the Governor’s Early Childhood Advisory Council.

Her statement said she will prioritize public safety, education, and an economy that works for everyone.

“As a working mom of four beautiful children, educator, and child and family advocate, I understand the devastating effects of the Republican majority’s inaction on the issues that matter most to my community,” Daniels said. “The time for complacency and status quo thinking is over. We need new leadership and fresh ideas in my district so we can work together to move Wisconsin forward.”

She said she wants to improve on the opportunities available to citizens to improve their lives.

“When I am elected, I will fight for strong public schools, women’s rights, common sense public safety legislation, and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top,” she said. “Hardworking families in Wisconsin deserve a champion on these pressing issues, and I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get the job done.”
