Madison – Representative Dean Knudson (R-Hudson) announced today that he will not seek re-election in 2016. Representative Knudson has represented the 30th Assembly District since 2011. He serves on the legislature’s Joint Committee on Finance as well as the Assembly Education Committee. Knudson is the vice-chairman of the Joint Committee on Review of Administrative Rules.
“Six years ago Wisconsin had fallen into a downward spiral of weak economic growth, budget deficits, higher taxes and staggering job losses. I ran for election to the legislature promising my district a strong voice for western Wisconsin advocating for more jobs, lower taxes and better education. We have faced tough choices without flinching, putting Wisconsin back on track to a more prosperous future.
“I vowed to work hard in Madison to protect the taxpayer. Compared to 2010, property taxes on the average Wisconsin home are lower today and income taxes are lower for all. We have balanced the budget without increasing taxes by reforming government.
“The time-honored American principle of rotation in office makes our government stronger by encouraging citizens to step up to serve in public office, bringing their experience and perspectives to our system of self-governance. It has been an honor and privilege to represent the people of the 30th District in the Assembly. I am very grateful to all those who worked and sacrificed to support my service in legislature.”
