Marklein Announces Candidacy for 17th Senate District
Seat is currently held by Senator Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center).

SPRING GREEN…Representative Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) announced his candidacy for Wisconsin’s 17th State Senate District today.  Marklein, a CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, is currently serving his second term as State Representative for the 51st Assembly District in southwestern Wisconsin.

“It has been a great honor representing the residents of the 51st Assembly District in the State Assembly,” said Marklein.  “I look forward to building upon the achievements and accomplishments of the previous legislative session, in which we were able to enact legislation that promoted job creation and improved the economy, as well as budget reforms which eliminated the deficit and left us with a surplus.”

The 17th Senate District is currently held by Senator Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center).  Schultz, a long-time incumbent, has been in office since 1982.  Senator Schultz’s current four year term is up in November 2014.  Schultz has not yet announced his re-election plans.

“I am extremely humbled by the support and encouragement I’ve received from supporters to run for the Senate.  I am announcing my campaign to ensure that we are able to continue to build on the good work we have done,” Marklein said.  “After growing up on a dairy farm in the district, I believe I will bring a fresh, common-sense perspective to the Senate.  As a CPA with extensive private sector experience, I will continue to advance the belief that government’s role is to provide the tools private businesses need to grow, rather than create road blocks to economic growth. I will also continue to advocate for policies that benefit our communities by allowing the private sector to create good jobs for our hard working people.”

The 17th Senate District encompasses much of southwestern Wisconsin.  It includes portions of Green, Iowa, Lafayette, Sauk, Richland, Grant, Juneau, Monroe, and Vernon Counties. 

“With a strong campaign team already in place, I’m excited and energized to hit the ground running and look forward to meeting area residents over the coming months,” Marklein concluded.
