Shankland is a fellow with the Center for Progressive Leadership State Political Leader and a member of the Portage County Democratic Party. Deeply committed to progressive values and restoring Wisconsin’s forward policies, she logged over 2,000 hours as a Field Organizer for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s recall campaign.
“We need a leader who will stand up for Wisconsin,” said Shankland. “This past legislative session was one of the most devastating in our state’s history. From deep budget cuts in education and health care to the startling attacks on workers’ rights, women’s health, and the environment, we need to approach the next legislative session with a firm commitment to Wisconsin families and communities.”
Shankland added the next session should focus on jobs, including forming greater partnerships with technical colleges and vocational schools to provide skills training, job coaching, and job placement to better establish a skilled labor force.
“Everyone is talking about jobs, but what we need to see come out of the Assembly is a statewide plan to train workers for existing jobs that cannot be filled in addition to creating and retaining jobs,” Shankland said.
Shankland graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in political science. She interned at a community development corporation, the Marathon County Courthouse, and served as Executive Residence intern for Governor Jim Doyle. She managed an international development nonprofit for a year and spent two years working on solar programs at the Midwest Renewable Energy Association before joining the recall effort.
