Hey there! It’s Lieutenant Governor Sara Rodriguez.

I’m incredibly humbled the people of Wisconsin have placed their trust in me to serve as lieutenant governor alongside Governor Evers.

Over the last year, I had the pleasure of traveling all over our great state to meet folks and families in their homes and businesses to hear about their lives and the challenges they face—and I had the chance to share a little bit about my own story, too.

I’m a born-and-raised Wisconsinite from Waukesha County. I'm the granddaughter of dairy farmers, the proud daughter of a working-class family, and now a mom of two teenagers.

I’m a nurse and public health professional who worked for more than 20 years, answering calls at all times of day and night to take care of my patients, friends, and neighbors.

So, the lesson I learned from conversations with Wisconsinites I met on the road won’t surprise you: we aren’t all that different.

Every family, like mine, wants to earn a good living, to have access to quality, affordable healthcare, and every family wants to be healthy.

Every family knows that fully funding our public schools is an investment in our kids and our future and that investing in affordable childcare and early education, maternal and infant health, and paid family leave will ensure our families succeed.

We want to reduce gun violence with commonsense gun safety reform, safe communities for kids to play in, clean water to drink, and to know that we’re leaving our kids with a better world than the one we inherited.

I ran for the State Assembly and then to be your lieutenant governor because issues like these were heavy on my mind—as a mother, as a small business owner, as a healthcare provider, and as a Wisconsinite.

We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, but I promised to always answer the call—and I meant it. I could not be prouder or more humbled to be a part of building that future as your lieutenant governor.
