MADISON, Wis. – Representative Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) announced today that he will be stepping down from his position as Assembly Minority Leader. Representative Sondy Pope (D-Mt. Horeb) released the following statement in response:
“Upon his election as Minority Leader four years ago, Rep. Hintz immediately injected new energy into the Assembly Democratic Caucus, and performed his role admirably from day one. His leadership led to gains in Democratic Assembly seats for the first time in a decade, and under his guidance, the caucus has pushed back against harmful GOP policies, and upheld the governor’s veto throughout his term.
“It has been a pleasure serving under his leadership. His deep policy knowledge, tenacity, and debate abilities on the floor are unmatched. I thank Rep. Hintz for being a strong, progressive voice, and for his time, energy, and sacrifices leading the way for positive change. It is an honor to continue to serve with him and I look forward to working with him on issues that aim to improve the lives of the people of Wisconsin.”
