Join in with us to support a local in her candidacy for 86th Assembly:NANCY STENCIL ANNOUNCING CANDIDACY FOR 86TH ASSEMBLY
Wausau, Wisconsin, March 17, 2014

Nancy Stencil, Town of Rib Mountain, will announce her candidacy for the 86th Assembly District on Thursday, March 20, 2014, at the Labor Temple, 318 S. 3rd Avenue, Wausau at 4 PM. The 86th Assembly seat is currently held by John Spiros (R-Marshfield).

Nancy Stencil has a degree in Human Services and works in the mental health field. She is a 2012 graduate of the Emerge training program for political leadership. Nancy is a life-long resident of the Wausau area with strong community ties. As she describes her life, “I have been everything from the Band Booster Mom, your garbage collector, a sexual assault advocate in the emergency room, to the person who coordinated our local candle light snowshoe hikes for many years. I have raised a daughter to adulthood.”

“I believe the 86th District, along with the rest of Wisconsin, is capable of supporting family sustaining jobs, jobs with a living wage, affordable health care that respects Women. We are capable of providing funding for our great public schools, technical colleges and the UWMC necessary for supporting out historic quality of life. We don’t have to settle for the last three and a half years of low growth and lost jobs. I believe I can provide the leadership and vision to make these goals a reality,” declared Stencil.
Nancy Stencil is straight forward. In her words, “I am hard working and diverse. I want to work with our communities to empower the middle class. As citizens faced with important choices, we must ask ourselves, do our choices show fairness? Do they show respect? Do our choices benefit our entire community, or just a select few?”
She has been a strong person whom has supported labor for many years and has been our Citizen of the Year 2012. She posed as Rosie The Riveiter in our 2012 Labor Day Parade. She not only has strong beleifs in labor, but education and Womens rights and community period. Check out your own opinion!
