MADISON – Wisconsin State Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement following Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh)’s announcement that he will step down from his leadership position:
“I want to thank Representative Hintz for his leadership, his mentorship, and his service to our caucus for more than four years. I was elected shortly after Gordon became the Democratic leader in the Assembly, and his willingness to support a young organizer’s vision for how we could push for a better future in Wisconsin was fundamental to my development as a legislator.
“Representative Hintz led our caucus through some of the most difficult years in recent memory, pushing back against Republican power grabs and gerrymandering, and leading us through a global pandemic. He brought new voices into our caucus, and worked to find new strategies for success in the face of a gerrymandered Republican majority.
“I’m very grateful to have served under Representative Hintz, and I look forward to continuing our caucus’ shared work of building a Wisconsin that truly works for all of us.”
