Neubauer and Haywood say they’re trying to energize young Wisconsinites to get involved.
When Reps. Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) and Kalan Haywood (D-Milwaukee) last month became Wisconsin’s top two Democrats in the Assembly, their elections represented a passing of the torch to a newer, younger, more diverse Democratic coalition.
Neubauer, 30, is the youngest minority leader in state history, the first openly LGBTQ legislative leader, and is one of just two women to have held her party’s top post. Haywood, 22, is likewise the youngest assistant minority leader in state history (and, since his first election at age 19, he has remained the youngest serving state lawmaker), and represents a growing group of young Black leaders in the state.
The two young leaders hope to channel their experiences and youth into a new generation of voters and leaders.
