LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A western Wisconsin native is hoping to replace Kathleen Vinehout on the state Senate.
Steve Boe, who grew up on a Taylor, Wisconsin dairy farm, is campaigning for the 31st state Senate District this Fall as a Democrat. That district includes Jackson, Trempealeau, and Buffalo counties.
Boe has a degree in Agricultural Education and Political Science, and currently serves as the Director of Local Affairs for the Wisconsin Farm Bureau. His platform includes strengthening rural economies, and improving infrastructure, healthcare, and public education.
"Kathleen's been a strong advocate for agriculture and I would hope to continue that. Coming back from a farm background myself, agriculture is a very important part not only to our region, but to our state,” said Boe.
Boe will not be running against Kathleen Vinehout, as she will be campaigning for Governor.
The Fall primaries are on August 14, with the general election in November.
