Markesan… Joan Ballweg, senator-elect for Wisconsin’s 14th State Senate District, released the following statement after declaring victory in Tuesday’s election:
“It is a true honor to be chosen by the people of the 14th Senate District to represent you in Madison. It is a responsibility I take seriously and I look forward to accomplishing great things on behalf of central Wisconsin together.
“As state representative, I championed bills to address student mental health, promote local control, and reduce burdensome regulations. There is more to be done in the state senate, and I look forward to partnering with stakeholders in the district and in Madison.
“I’d like to thank my supporters, friends, and family for your encouragement during this campaign cycle. 2020 has been full of challenges, and the upcoming legislative session will hold unique challenges of its own. I couldn’t do this work without you.”
