Representative Vos Announces Run for Re-Election for the Wisconsin State Assembly

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement to announce his decision to seek another term in the Wisconsin State Assembly.

“Since Paul announced his decision Wednesday, I’ve been overwhelmed at the outpouring of support from friends, colleagues and constituents who are encouraging me to run in the 1st Congressional District. While I know that our nation’s capital desperately needs more conservative reformers from Wisconsin, Michelle and I have decided that we can do more good continuing to push state-based conservative reforms. That’s why I will seek re-election in the state Legislature and continue to focus on maintaining the strong, historic majority in the Wisconsin State Assembly. I’m incredibly proud of the work that we’ve done in Madison and I know we have a lot more work to do in our state.

“I have always believed that states are the laboratories of democracy. In Wisconsin, we’re providing a roadmap for the nation on how conservative reforms can move a state forward. We’ve enacted bold welfare reforms, cut taxes by more than $8 billion, invested record amounts in our public schools, passed Wisconsin’s right-to-work law and Act 10, defended our Voter ID law and continued to chip away at burdensome regulations. We have a long list of accomplishments that other states and the federal government can emulate.

“It’s my hope that the federal government can give states more freedom to innovate. I look forward to having additional opportunities for Wisconsin to lead the way.”

Thank you for your support!

I am honored and humbled to be selected once again by the voters in the 63rd Assembly District to be their voice in the Wisconsin State Assembly.  I promise to work tirelessly on behalf of the citizens of Racine County.  I will continue to put taxpayers first and work hard to create the  best environment possible for job creation.  My top priorities for the next session also include cutting taxes, improving schools and reforming government.  If you have ideas that we should address in the next legislative session, please give me a call or send me an e-mail.  I look forward to hearing from you soon. 

On to November!

I would like to thank the voters in the 63rd Assembly District for their support in the primary election this past week. I am honored to receive the nomination and I look forward to having the opportunity to be your voice in Madison for another term.

As I travel throughout the district going door-to-door, one of the most important things people share with me is that they’re pleased that we’re getting things done to move Wisconsin forward. We’ve cut income taxes, lowered property taxes, and cracked down on food stamp fraud. While not every issue is a bipartisan one, lawmakers are working together to get things done.  Democrats and Republicans came together to address mental health care concerns with the Speaker’s Task Force on Mental Health.  We then approved one of the most comprehensive package of mental health care reforms in decades.  Lawmakers also worked in a bipartisan fashion to pass the first of its kind legislative package to combat the growing heroin problem in our state.


However, we all know that more work needs to be done. Property taxes are still too high and we need more family supporting jobs.  We must continue to reduce the size of government and find ways to improve our business climate.  I will continue to deliver on my promise to stand up for taxpayers, reform government, and fight for the priorities that make Racine County strong. 

In two months, voters across Wisconsin will have the chance to affirm what Republicans have been doing in Madison for the future of our state.  It’s important to remember how far we’ve come in just four years. We had a $3.6 billion deficit, the unemployment rate was high, and thousands of people were left looking for work. We’ve turned the state around with a budget surplus and a better business environment with thousands of new jobs. It’s clear Racine County has benefited from the smart decisions that were made in Madison. It has been a privilege to represent Racine County during these important times and I ask for your support again in the November election.
