David Gorki to Announce Candidacy for State Assembly, 72nd District
Wisconsin Rapids—David Gorski announced his intention to run for the 72nd State Assembly seat in central Wisconsin today.
This is the second run for the office by Gorski who was the nominee of the Democratic Party in 2016.
“Over the last six years, out-of-state money is driving laws being made in Madison. The finger prints of the American Legislative Exchange Council and Koch Brothers are all over the Right-to-Work-for-Less law and the Tax Payer-Funded Private School Voucher Program,” said Gorski. “I stand for Wisconsin families, safe water, a future for our children in our state where we make the decisions.”
Gorski is a Democrat and member of the Progressive Caucus. He is a retired counselor and drug-and-alcohol prevention specialist for the Nekoosa School System, living in the town of Grand Rapids.
Gorski’s announcement event will take place at the Hotel Mead and Conference Center Atrium at 451 E Grand Ave in Wisconsin Rapids, on Tuesday, November 21st, at 7:00 pm.
“I am declaring my candidacy for the State Assembly in the 72nd district for the 2018 primary and general election and I stand for the following,” said Gorski, presenting some 16 issue positions:
