For Immediate Release:

It is with great sadness that we share the following official announcement on behalf of Mary Ann for Dane County:

March 1, 2021:  Due to recent tragedy, Mary Ann Nicholson will cease campaigning for the position of Dane County Executive on April 6, 2021. Mary Ann wishes for supporters of all ages across the entire county to know how grateful she is to have had the opportunity to represent an independent voice over the past four months. She hopes her efforts and vision for change inspires others to bravely act towards public service and balanced leadership goals. 

Mary Ann is our next choice for representing entrepreneurial spirit, lifelong learning, and the breadth of experience of 
Dane County residents 




Laura Kocum, Madison WI resident:

"Mary Ann is open-minded, responsive and smart. She knows we need to re-open schools, champion small businesses, and ensure safe and well-maintained infrastructure in Dane County. She also knows how to live on a budget. Her business experience and common sense approach make her my choice for Dane County Executive."

Malia King, Oregon WI resident:

"Mary Ann is willing to stand up for the people of Dane County and advocate for small businesses, students, and families to return to making their own decisions regarding their health. Dane County needs strong people willing to stand up for the rights of the average citizen. Long term government control over the everyday lives of its citizens is antithetical to American values. Mary Ann has my vote, because she stands for the rights of all citizens in Dane County." 


Brad Stevens, Middleton WI resident:

"Being a lifelong resident with many ties to our community, I am now living in the demise that our runaway local officials have caused. Mary Ann has the courage to represent the people, not political interest and ego. Mary Ann is balanced, financially responsible, and someone who stands up to the challenges we now face. Mary Ann Nicholson has my support for Dane County Executive."

Hope + support for Dane County families and businesses.

Mary Ann believes in the phrase "Keep Hope Alive!" coined by long-time Madison area pastor, team chaplain, and mentor to countless individuals. Mary Ann seeks your support on April 6, 2021 in the race for Dane County Executive. 



Mary Ann is working hard to engage with Dane County residents.
