Stevens Point, WI – Citing the need to lower health care costs, provide quality education for our children, restore local decision making authority and protect our drinking water, central Wisconsin native and longtime law enforcement officer Paul Piotrowski, has formally announced his candidacy for the 24th State Senate District.
“I’m running for State Senate because we deserve a stronger voice than what we have in Madison,” said Paul, “Residents throughout the 24th Senate District need someone they can trust and rely on. From my service in the Navy to protecting our community as a police officer, I know how to fight for the issues impacting families every single day.”
Piotrowski, a Democrat, proudly served his hometown for close to 27 years as a Stevens Point police officer. He is a veteran of the United States Navy, earning a Defense Meritorious Service Medal, and most recently served as the Stevens Point City Clerk, an elected position. As an officer for the Stevens Point Police Department, Paul served in various roles including Patrol Sergeant and Community Resource Officer. Piotrowski represented the department on different committees and commissions like Portage County Alliance for Youth, the Family Crisis Center Advisory Board, and Triad with senior citizens. He has also served as a volunteer in the community over the years, particularly for the Portage County Cultural Festival. Paul and his wife Cindy live in Stevens Point. They have two grown children and three grandchildren.
“I’m a native of central Wisconsin. Cindy and I raised our children here and we both have been deeply involved in our community and the region. I look forward to meeting voters across the district and to learning about their needs and expectations.” he said
