Adler Graduate Runs for Wisconsin County Board Seat

An Adler University graduate and hopeful politician is making headlines while campaigning for a board seat in Dane County, Wisconsin, where she says she hopes to establish a more socially just structure for residents.

Several area publications recently featured Tanya Buckingham, who graduated from Adler with an M.A. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. A longtime volunteer for local campaigns, Buckingham is running for the Dane County Board of Supervisors.

Asked in one report to identify the greatest issue facing the county’s residents, Buckingham said:

“The racial achievement gap is the largest issue facing the county. It encompasses all of the tenets of the county, from access to transportation and affordable housing, to health care and environmental justice. If, as elected officials, we focus on making a fair environment — structurally and naturally — for each of our residents, we will find that the quality of life for all will increase.”

Residents will cast their ballots on April 3 to for the District 24 seat on the Dane County Board of Supervisors.
