My family has farmed in Gladstone for five generations. As a state representative for Delta, Dickinson, and Menominee Counties, I will strive to represent you with the values I learned here: hard work, integrity, and community.
In these polarized times, we may not agree with our family and neighbors on every issue, but we still listen with and treat each other with respect. Lansing needs to do the same and get things done for us.
Renee Richer grew up on her family’s farm in Gladstone and attended Holy Name Catholic School and Gladstone High, where she graduated at the top of her class. She also ran track and was All UP Cross Country her senior year.
Renee went on to work her way through graduate school, earning a doctorate in biology from Harvard University. Throughout her career, she has studied the impacts of the environment on human health.
Today, Renee lives across from her parents on the family farm with her daughter and partner, in an 1888 farmhouse that she operates as a bed and breakfast. In addition to mending fences, feeding the farm animals, and running her business, she also commutes to her teaching job at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in Marinette.
