Sturgeon Bay will need a new state rep. soon. Gary Bies is hanging it up.
Though there has been some change in voting trends in Door County in recent years, I really don’t see Republicans losing this seat.
Madison… “Tomorrow I will file my Notice of Non-Candidacy to seek an eighth term in the state Assembly.
“I am very grateful to the citizens of the First Assembly District who’ve supported me with their vote to be their Representative for the past 7 terms.
“With your encouragement and prayers we have accomplished many things both large and small to make our state and district a better place to live, work and enjoy. I thank you for the opportunity to have served you for the past 14 years.
“God Bless you, the State of Wisconsin and the United States of America.”
Bies joins Cascade’s Dan LeMahieu as another recent retirement announcement. That seat too, the 58th, will likely stay in Republican hands.
