Madison – Today, State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) announced her retirement from the State Senate effective December 1, 2022. Rep. Dan Knodl (R-Germantown) issued the following statement:

“I want to thank my friend Alberta for her decades of service to the 8th Senate District. Alberta has been a valuable mentor to me since I entered the State Assembly, and I have been proud to work alongside her on important issues including education reform and restoring our state’s finances.

“Senator Darling’s career accomplishments go far beyond the 8th Senate District. Thanks to her efforts, the entire state of Wisconsin is benefiting from a thriving school choice program, fiscally responsible state budgets, and common-sense tax reform. I wish her all the best in her upcoming retirement.”

Senator Darling was first elected to the State Assembly in 1990 and has served the 8th Senate District since 1992. Her achievements include the first school choice program in the nation as well as a remarkable tenure as co-chair of the Joint Finance Committee, during which she helped usher in unprecedented tax cuts and budget surpluses.
