Sen. Neal Kedzie running for re-election
ELKHORN—State Sen. Neal Kedzie, R-Elkhorn, announced Thursday he is seeking re-election to the Wisconsin State Senate's 11th District seat.
Kedzie currently represents the district, which includes portions of Walworth, Rock, Jefferson, Waukesha, Kenosha and Racine counties.
Kedzie was elected to the state senate in 2002, then re-elected in 2006 and 2010. Before that he served three terms in the state Assembly as its 43rd District representative.
Kedzie's campaign will focus on his past achievements and the history made in the Senate in the past three years, according to a news release.
In the last session, taxes were reduced by more than $1 billion. In the last three years, taxes were reduced by more than $2 billion, according to the release.
Kedzie claims deficits and tax increases are in the past and Wisconsin is “leading the way to real government reform.”
Kedzie's successes include tax relief, government reform, and balancing environmental and economic needs, according to the release.
“Great things can be accomplished for Wisconsin when we work with each other to find common ground on mutual goals; but it requires the strength and resolve of an experienced lawmaker in the Senate. I have that experience,” Kedzie said in the release.
Declarations of candidacy are due to the Government Accountability Board by 5 p.m. Monday, June 2. No other candidates are listed on the Campaign Finance Information System website.
The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 4.
