[Interned with Vicki while attending Viterbo University] I was first introduced to Vicki Markussen when I began my search for an internship back in 2016.

I must say that I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work under her wing for a year and a half and wouldn’t be where I am without her mentorship. She is a great leader with the unique ability to discover each person's strength and empowers them to do what they are good at. To put that in perspective of what she can do for the city of La Crosse, Vicki has been one of the most involved people in our community and knows what is best for the city.

You are probably asking yourself, is Vicki fit to run for mayor? The answer is HELL YES. Before she even announced her candidacy I always thought in the back of my mind that Vicki would be a great mayor. I was not surprised when she chose to run and was honestly excited. She is a lady full of great ideas. I’ve seen Vicki ask the tough questions and she will vocally make her point on the countless issues the city of La Crosse faces. Aside from that, she will seek out ways to make the city a great place to do business and continue to be one of the best places to live.
