Watertown, WI – Republican Jennifer Meinhardt, an associate professor of history, mother and Wisconsin native, announced her campaign for the 37th Assembly District today.
“Rep. John Jagler has been a great advocate for our communities, and I’m excited to see him win the upcoming Senate District 13 special election on April 6,” Meinhardt said. “As we work to make that victory a reality, I am also starting the process of running for the 37th Assembly District.”
“I’m the granddaughter of Rosholt farmers, the daughter of a Milwaukee blue-collar worker, and the first in my family to attend college, which I did in this district,” Meinhardt said. “My decision to run for the state Assembly is a natural progression of my life’s focus: to support conservative policies that result in strong families and strong communities.”
“Communities need the consistency of freedom to flourish: freedom of religion and of speech, of the right to bear arms, and of voting in free and fair elections,” she continued.
“We know that the government can threaten these freedoms, and it is up to engaged citizens to protect this inheritance. As a Republican, as an educator, as a mom–and now as a candidate–I am committed to doing just that.” Meinhardt and her husband Tim live in Watertown, Wisconsin with their three children. Jennifer teaches at Maranatha Baptist University, and Tim serves as a hospice chaplain.
