Bayfield, WI – Representative Beth Meyers (D-Bayfield) announced today that she will run for re-election to the Wisconsin State Assembly. In announcing her candidacy, Meyers released the following statement:
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your representative. For almost six years, I have been a voice for Northern Wisconsin, advocating for the unique challenges and needs of the 74th Assembly District, but I believe there is more we can accomplish together,” said Rep. Beth Meyers.
“We are in the midst of one of the greatest challenges we may ever face in our lifetimes. Through it, I have seen the compassion, solidarity and tenacity of the people I represent. I am so proud of the community spirit, but this alone cannot bring us through this public health and economic crisis.
“As we look to the future, we need a voice in Madison that looks out for everyone—workers, business owners, retirees, families—anyone who calls the Northwoods home. I wholeheartedly believe that we will get through this, but we need state investment and resources to weather the economic fallout from COVID-19. Northern Wisconsin’s comeback is my top priority.
“As your representative, I work for the people. I have the experience, the drive and the passion to continue working for the constituents of the 74th District, and I won’t let them down,” stated Meyers.
Representative Meyers lives in the Town of Russell with her husband Kevin Buzicky. She represents Bayfield, Ashland, Iron, Price and parts of Sawyer, Douglas and Vilas Counties. Included in the 74th District are the Red Cliff, Bad River and Lac du Flambeau tribal reservations. Representative Meyers serves on Assembly Committee on Energy & Utilities, Financial Institutions, is a member of the Speaker’s Task Force on Suicide
Prevention and is Ranking Democrat on both the Assembly Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care and the Assembly Committee on Energy & Utilities. She was elected to the State Assembly in 2014 and serves as Minority Caucus Secretary.
