(Beloit, WI) – Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for Wisconsin Superintendent of Public Instruction, made the following statement in response to the results of today’s primary election in Wisconsin.

“I would like to extend gratitude to my supporters, friends, and family around the state who voted for me in today’s election.  I am humbled by their faith in my ability to work as an advocate for every student in our state, and correct the extensive vulnerabilities of Wisconsin’s education bureaucracy in the general election.

I look forward to the campaign ahead, and anticipate a spirited and meaningful debate as I present an alternative vision for the future of Wisconsin’s students to that of Dr. Tony Evers.”

Dr. Holtz has taught in classrooms, been recognized as a Wisconsin Principal of the Year, and has led district improvement efforts as Superintendent of the Palmyra-Eagle, Beloit, and Whitnall School Districts. He spent much of his childhood in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood, and is the son of a retired Milwaukee Police Officer.

In addition to his roles in education, Dr. Holtz has over two decades of experience in law enforcement.
