RICE LAKE, WI — Last night, David Armstrong (R-Rice Lake) declared victory in the 75th Assembly District. The seat is being vacated by Rep. Romaine Quinn (R-Cameron) who decided against running for reelection after three terms in the State Assembly.
Armstrong released the following statement: “First, I am humbled and honored to be chosen by the voters of the 75th Assembly District to represent them in the Legislature. Thank you so much to those who put their trust in me. Thank you to Rep. Romaine Quinn who has been a great mentor during this entire process and has helped this campaign tremendously. I have some big shoes to fill and I join the people of the 75th District thanking you for your service to our state. Last but certainly not least, thank you to my family. My wife Janell, our kids, and grandchildren have had my back the entire time and I could not have done this without their love and support.
“I cannot wait to get to Madison to bring our Northwestern Wisconsin values to the Legislature. I cannot wait to get to work to ensure that our way of life is protected and this part of the state gets its piece of the pie. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get our economy back on track, get people back to work, and find ways to bring affordable, workforce housing to areas across the state that need it. My background in economic development makes me uniquely qualified to help accomplish these goals and that is what I plan to do.
“I encourage my constituents to reach out to my office any time and I will do everything I can to help you and represent your best interests. Now let’s get to work!”
Representative-Elect Armstrong will be officially inaugurated at a ceremony in the State Capitol in Madison on January 4, 2021. A ceremonial, in-district inauguration will be announced in the coming weeks and will take place in Barron County.
The 75th Assembly District is made up of parts of Barron, Burnett, Dunn, Polk, St. Croix, and Washburn Counties
