Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire Representative Jodi Emerson has announced her reelection campaign for the 91st Assembly District.
On Thursday she released a statement saying her job is not finished.
“In 2018, I ran for office to fight for the environment, criminal justice reform, affordable and accessible healthcare, our public education system, and making sure our economy works for everyone. While we have made some progress on these issues in this past legislative session, the COVID crisis shows that we are more divided than ever. Many are losing sleep at night due to financial worries. They are afraid to go to the doctor because of rising costs. Bills on clean water did not pass this year because of political games in Madison. In short, there is much more work to be done. The job that I went to Madison to do is not finished. Today I am announcing my campaign for re-election to the State Assembly. Looking ahead to the next two years, we will be drawing new maps for legislative districts. Those maps must be drawn fairly so that elected officials are responsive to the people, not political party leaders. As we emerge from this crisis we must ensure we are putting people first, not big corporations. I used to say that my goal was to be a voice for the voiceless. I was wrong. Everyone has a voice. As a leader, I strive to elevate the voice of every resident of the 91st Assembly District so that they are heard in Madison."Rep. Jodi Emerson (D-Eau Claire)
So far, no Republicans have formally announced a run for the seat.
