Middleton – Dianne Hesselbein released the following statement announcing her candidacy for the 27th Senate District.

“I am excited to announce my candidacy for the 27th Senate District. Having spent the last nine years representing the 79th Assembly District, I look forward to continuing my advocacy for the people of south and west central Wisconsin. Throughout my time in the Legislature, I have been a champion for our veterans, children and environment. During my time on the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School Board, Dane County Board and in the State Assembly, my priorities have always been the needs of those I serve and I look forward to continuing that progress in the State Senate.

“I will also be stepping down from my position as Assistant Democratic Leader in the State Assembly. It is critical for my colleagues to have a leadership team in place that is solely focused on building a strong Assembly caucus for the next legislative session. It was an honor to have their trust these past five years. I wish them luck and look forward to furthering our shared goals of a Wisconsin that works for all.

“We face difficult challenges in the years ahead. As a candidate for the 27th Senate District, I am ready to face those challenges and ensure the concerns and needs of my constituents are heard in Madison.”
