Republican assembly representative from Menomonee Falls has not co-sponsored any legislation on marijuana reform since elected in 2014.  

Rep. Brandtjen, Republican assembly representative from Menomonee Falls has not co-sponsored any legislation on marijuana reform since elected in 2014.  She is somewhat absent of public statements about marijuana reform. In 2020 she was unopposed in the general election. Based off the crowd she runs with and some past listening sessions, most have her down as a failing representative on this issue and many others. As she comes out now as a co-sponsor of this bill, it seems pretty evident she is not a friend of reform and will concentrate hard on prohibition style tactics and misinformation.

Holds office State Assembly District 22
