In addition, Representative Kuglitsch said, “I have had the opportunity to meet and forge great friendships with many individuals from across this wonderful state. I was blessed to enter the Assembly with 25 freshman legislators in 2011. These individuals come from all parts of the state and each had unique talents that allowed this class to be instrumental in helping the Legislature pass 12 years of conservative legislation. I truly appreciate my fellow freshman of 2011 and all that we accomplished.”
“Any legislator knows that without the support of their family, it is very difficult to do this job right. I want to thank my wife and children for their encouragement and help with campaigning and parades. I also want to thank all my great staff, volunteers, and finally, the voters who trusted in me,” Kuglitsch affirmed.
