Representative Mary Felzkowski Announces Bid for State Senate
IRMA, WI -- State Representative Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) announced her bid for the 12th State Senate District today at a series of events throughout the 12th Senate District. Felzkowski believes it is crucial the Northwoods have a strong, conservative voice representing the district down in Madison.
“My family’s roots run deep in the Northwoods where I have lived my entire life and learned the meaning of hard work and common-sense decision-making,” said Felzkowski. “I’m proud to come from a line of small business owners and will continue to work hard to ensure our area sees prosperity and growth today, and in the future.”
“As a state representative, I have been proud to work alongside leaders like Governor Scott Walker and State Senator Tom Tiffany to protect our second amendment rights, fight against job-killing regulations and usher in bold reforms that have saved taxpayers billions and made our economy strong. I will continue that fight in the State Senate and make sure we have a strong voice down in Madison.”
Representative Mary Felzkowski has served two terms on the powerful Joint Finance Committee, and currently serves on the Assembly Committees for Forestry, Parks and Outdoor Recreation, Sporting Heritage and Health. She is a member of the Paper Caucus, Rural Wisconsin Initiative, and was elected by her colleagues to serve as Assistant Majority Leader of the Assembly Republican Caucus.
Mary is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, the former president of Tomahawk Main Street, the former president of Tomahawk Child Care, board member of the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research, and a member of the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce and Professional Insurance Agents of Wisconsin.
The 12th State Senate District consists of parts of Florence, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, Oneida, Shawano, and Vilas Counties.
