My name is Dr. Jennifer Hoppe Vipond, and I am a Republican running to represent Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.
I am running for Congress because we need physician input to tackle healthcare policy, the opioid epidemic and gun violence. I do not owe any political favors to the NRA or pharmaceutical companies or unions or any other special interest group. I am free to use my intelligence, my common sense and my lifetime of experience in the fifth district to make policies that will benefit real people.
For more than twenty-five years I have had the privilege to serve the people of District 5 as a pediatrician. I have worked with thousands of families and been a part of their struggles and their successes. I was born and raised in this district. My husband Mark and I have raised six children here while I have maintained a full time medical practice.
Congress has become a dysfunctional body divided into two groups that refuse to agree on even the most obvious issues. I would like to bring back a Congress where the constituents are more influential than special interests and where evidence-based policymaking replaces fear mongering and divisiveness.
Lasting reform will only be accomplished with bipartisan agreements, and it is time to grow up and work together to solve the problems that are impacting so many American families.
I would like to bring back a Congress where the constituents are more influential than special interests and where evidence-based policymaking replaces fear mongering and divisiveness.
As a pediatrician, I have worked hard to address today’s issues in order to assure the best possible tomorrow. In Congress, I will do the same.
