MADISON – Wisconsin State Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) today announced that she will run for the position of Minority Leader in the Wisconsin State Assembly’s Democratic Caucus. Rep. Neubauer released the following statement:
“I want to thank Rep. Gordon Hintz again for his leadership and service to our caucus. As legislators, we ran for office to build a Wisconsin where each and every person can thrive. Over my last four years in office, we have pushed to invest more in education, expand healthcare access, reduce inequality, and more alongside Governor Evers and the Senate Democrats. Democrats have also worked together to counter ongoing attacks on our democracy, a pandemic, and GOP-fueled culture wars.
“In the face of these challenges, it will take all of us to fight for the people of Wisconsin. Today, I am announcing my intention to run for Assembly Democratic Minority Leader because I believe I can lead our caucus to advance our shared priorities in 2022.
“The next twelve months will be an incredibly important time for our state. While we know the obstacles we face heading into the coming year, I believe that we can hold Republicans accountable for their reckless decisions that have put our state and our democracy at risk. Together, we can promote a visionary agenda that improves people’s lives and shows how government can and must be a force for good.”
