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.

 

A Note of Thanks from Robin Vos

I would like to express my gratitude to the citizens of the 63rd Assembly District for re-electing me to the Wisconsin State Assembly. I am honored and humbled that you put your trust in me to serve as your representative for two more years. I will deliver on my promise to stand up for taxpayers and continue to reform state government. I will work hard to eliminate burdensome regulations that stand in the way of small business growth.

I will work to bring more private sector jobs to Racine County. Also, I will look for ways to continue to reform our schools to ensure every child gets a quality education.

I am also here to help you and your family if you have any questions or concerns with a state issue. Please give my office a call at (888) 534-0063 or e-mail me at Rep.Vos@legis.wi.gov. I respond to every e-mail and try to call back each constituent who calls my office.

Another way to keep informed is to subscribe to my legislative weekly E-Updates to learn about issues being discussed by the state Legislature. You can sign up for at www.repvos.com. I also provide updates on state issues on Facebook or Twitter. Again, thank you for your continued support.
