Altoona, WI – Small businessman Brian Westrate formally announced his candidacy for the 23rd state senate seat on the promise of limiting government, and restoring liberty.
“As a father, I feel it is my duty to stand up for liberty and the rule of law;” said Westrate. “Governor Evers’ policies have curtailed our freedoms, hurt our state, and made it harder for people to pursue their American dream. I’m running to shrink government, expand liberty, and promote policies that affirm life and our ability to make an honest living.”
Westrate enters the race with the endorsement of former Governor Scott Walker, who noted that the long-time grassroots conservative activist would make a great State Senator for the region.
“Brian Westrate believes that the people in the Chippewa Valley know how to live their lives better than the bureaucrats in Madison,” said Walker. “He is a devoted husband and father, honest businessman, community volunteer, man of faith, and active supporter of common-sense conservative ideas.”
Brian and his wife Beth are lifelong residents of The Chippewa Valley. They live in Fall Creek with their two children. In addition to having spent more than twenty years serving the community in various volunteer capacities, Westrate has founded and run two small businesses in Altoona, his current business being an independent insurance agency. He is a lifetime member of the NRA, a past president of the Wild Turkey Federation, and is 100% pro-life.
