La Crosse, WI—Rep. Ron Kind released the following statement after Wisconsin Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) announced her decision not to seek reelection in November:

“Whether it was working as an aide for myself and State Representative Mark Meyer, or serving in the State Assembly and State Senate, State Senator Jennifer Shilling has been a tireless, dedicated, and dependable public servant for more than 25 years and we’ve been lucky to have her. Jen has been an effective and strong leader for Wisconsin’s 32nd Senate District. She bridged the partisan gap with a clear vision of her priorities but always did so with a great sense of humor. Wisconsinites always could count on Jen to roll up her sleeves, get things done, and pass legislation that made a difference. Jen’s decision to retire is a huge loss not only for our district, but for our state. As Jen likes to say, ‘onward, upward and forward,’ thank you for your service, Jen.”
