MADISON – Representative James Edming (R-Glen Flora) released the following statement after Senator Jerry Petrowski announced his retirement from the State Senate at the end of this term.
“Since he became our senator back in 2012, Jerry has been an outstanding advocate for the people of the 29th Senate District. During my time serving with him in the legislature, I’ve had the pleasure of working with him to advance the priorities of the hardworking people of the 87th Assembly District that we both represent. From the legislation that resulted in a much needed new circuit court branch in Marathon County, and hopefully one soon in Sawyer County, to advocating for our farmers, I’m grateful for all we were able to accomplish together. I am proud to call Jerry my friend, and I wish him and his wife the best wherever the road may lead them next.”
