Madison – Following Senator Jennifer Shilling’s (D-La Crosse) announcement that she will not seek re-election, Senate Assistant Minority Leader Janet Bewley (D-Delta) released the following statement:
“It has been my honor and privilege to serve alongside Senator Jennifer Shilling in both the Wisconsin State Assembly and Senate. Senator Shilling exemplifies all that is right with our political system. For 20 years she has dedicated her time and energy to serving not only the people of her beloved Coulee region, but all the people of Wisconsin. Her accomplished career epitomizes what it means to be a public servant.
“Senator Shilling has been a champion for our shared democratic ideals during challenging times and provided a steady hand as leader of the Senate Democratic Caucus. I will miss her tremendously, but know that she will continue her lifelong work to make our state an even better place. I wish her the best in whatever comes next for her and her family.”
