Early in the campaign season, Abigail Lowery took a stance on marijuana reform saying "I support regulating marijuana in the same way we regulate alcohol. Transitioning to this approach with marijuana would have many positive effects on social justice, criminal justice, and the economy."
Candidate in race for State Assembly District 37
My extensive background in public service will be invaluable in representing the varied interests and tackling the wide range of issues in the 37th Assembly District. I am a former special education teacher, autism line therapist, respite care provider, group home coordinator, and special education assistant.
I exited the teaching profession to stay at home, full time, with my two young children and during that time became involved in community organizing with the DeForest-Windsor Area Grassroots (DWAG) coalition and volunteering as a meal delivery driver.
Currently, I proudly serve as a DeForest Village Trustee. I was elected in 2017 and re-elected in 2019. I have also served as the chair of the DeForest Housing Authority Board of Commissioners (until 2019), as a DeForest Library Board member, Pool Task Force member, and as a DaneCom board member.
My family and I have lived in the 37th District for over a decade, and I have lived in Wisconsin my whole life. I am a UW-Madison graduate who is fortunate to call DeForest home with my husband, two kids, and a dog that we lovingly adopted from the Columbia County Humane Society.
I strongly believe in personal freedom with reasonable regulations as needed. Thus, I support regulating marijuana in the same way we regulate alcohol. Transitioning to this approach with marijuana would have many positive effects on social justice, criminal justice, and the economy. - June 2020
