Dec. 7, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Due to the untimely passing of our good friend and Assembly Representative, Bob Gannon, a special election will soon be held in the West Bend area to fill the open seat. The field is set and dates have been identified with the primary scheduled for December 19 and the election on January 16.
For over 40 years the 58th Assembly District has been blessed with active, intelligent and conservative Representatives in Madison who have had direct ties to West Bend.
As the largest community in the 58th district I feel it is important for West Bend’s interests to be advocated for directly at the tables of power in Madison.
As Mayor, it is critical to have a strong partnership and consistent dialog with our Madison representatives. The people of West Bend have benefited from past cooperation and our voices have been heard through support of such legislation as ACT 10, Right to Work, Prevailing Wage Reform and most recently the Dark Store debates.
Knowledge of, experience with and involvement in the City of West Bend is vital for a candidate to be a successful representative of the 58th district.
My family and I are proud to support Steve Stanek in the upcoming election. We have known Steve and his family as friends, volunteers, business owners and generous supporters of multiple efforts throughout the West Bend area. They have dedicated their time and talents to efforts at Holy Angels School in West Bend, both Slinger and West Bend High Schools, local Rotary Clubs and multiple other charitable endeavors.
For over two years, Steve was a valuable asset to the City’s Value Task Force which analyzed operations and made recommendations to the City Council that we still use today. Steve has a big heart, a desire to be involved in positive change and he is not afraid to ask challenging questions in an effort to ensure he makes the correct decision. Those that know Steve personally will agree that he will be a firm and strong voice in Madison for all residents of our district, fighting to make sure our interests are protected.
I am pleased to endorse Steve Stanek for State Assembly, and ask that you consider supporting Steve with your vote on both December 19 and January 16.
Mayor City of West Bend
