Recently, 59th Assembly district candidate, Ty Bodden, sat down with Gene Wendorff to discuss what the state government can do to help his business thrive.


“South Eastern Wisconsin businesses needs an ally in Madison now more than ever, that is why I will be supporting Ty Bodden for Wisconsin’s 59th Assembly District,” said Wendorff. “Ty is an energetic and well-grounded Wisconsinite who is committed to providing more job training opportunities for Wisconsin’s work force and strongly supports the agriculture and manufacturing sectors in Wisconsin.

Gene, as well as I, have ideas and plans to change that.  I am so appreciative of his support and I am looking forward to working for and serving him and all job creators when I am in Madison.”
