Madison- Following Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke’s (R-Kaukauna) retirement announcement, Rep. Amy Loudenbeck issued the following statement:
“Representative Steineke might sit in the front row in caucus and when we are on the floor, but all day, every day he has everyone on our team’s back. He has accomplished so much during his tenure and for that he earned my deepest appreciation and respect. Not only has he been an incredible advocate for his district, he’s championed numerous initiatives of statewide importance including sporting heritage, wetlands and homelessness.
“I’ve had the honor of serving with Rep. Steineke since we were first elected in 2010. His leadership and institutional knowledge have been instrumental in successfully passing many conservative reforms over our tenure in office.
“While we may not be serving in the Assembly together after this year, I look forward to continuing our friendship and I wish Jim and his family the best as they begin the next chapter.”
