Contact: Rep. Hintz, (608) 266-2254

OSHKOSH –State Representative Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) announced today that he will not seek reelection to the state Assembly in the fall of 2022.

“It has been a great honor to represent the people of Oshkosh in the Wisconsin State Assembly the past 15 years. As someone born and raised in Oshkosh, a product of Oshkosh public schools, who shared his parents’ interest in public service, the job has been a thrilling and incredibly rewarding experience.

“Despite the changing nature of politics and different roles and responsibilities I have had in the Assembly, the people of Oshkosh have always remained my absolute priority. I am proud of the accomplishments I have been a part of during my time in the legislature. And while disappointed by many of the decisions that were made — or failed to be made — during my tenure, I have always strived to find value in my work that benefitted the people of the 54th District and of our state. I will miss many of the people I have served with, and the important work done each and every day.

Representative Hintz was first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 2006 and re-elected to his eighth term for the 2021-2022 Legislative Session. He has served as Chair of the Assembly Consumer Protection Committee (2009-10), a member of the State Building Commission (2009-14), on the legislature’s budget-writing Joint Committee on Finance for two budget cycles (2015-16 and 2017-18) and as a board member of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (2019 to present).  In January, Rep. Hintz concluded his tenure as the Wisconsin State Assembly Minority Leader, a role he had been elected by his colleagues to serve in since the fall of 2017.

“I haven’t made any decisions about my future at this time, but look forward to the next challenge. Until my term as representative is up, I plan on continuing my service to my constituents. I’m grateful to have had this amazing opportunity to serve, and appreciate the support of my family, especially my wife Liz, during my time in office. I would like to thank the people of Oshkosh for their trust, and support in giving me the opportunity to represent them in the Assembly.”
