From my email inbox comes news EMILY’s List has placed Democratic Congressional candidate Kelly Westlund, who’s running against “Struggling” Sean Duffy, “On the List.”

Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, put Wisconsin’s Seventh Congressional District candidate Kelly Westlund “On the List.”

“On the List” is a way to make sure that the EMILY’s List community, now more than three million members strong, can engage with and support promising candidates all across the country. By putting these women “On the List,” EMILY’s List is ensuring that they have access to this powerful network of supporters.

“Kelly Westlund is a strong progressive leader who has built a career fighting for positive change in her community,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “From supporting local farms and businesses to improving sustainability, Kelly has tackled community issues with forward thinking solutions. She will be a fresh voice for women and families in Congress and the EMILY’s List community – now more than three million members strong – is excited to support her campaign.”

Kelly Westlund is a small business owner and member of the Ashland City Council. As a small business owner, Westlund works to build strong local food system to support local family farms. Prior to that, Westlund served at a local nonprofit that focused on community and economic development through sustainable practices. Kelly Westlund grew up in a military family and traveled around the country, but made Northern Wisconsin her home after attending Northland College. She and her husband Caleb live in Ashland.
