Rusk County Small Business Owner Seeks Third Term Representing the 87th Assembly District.
Today, Representative James “Jimmy Boy” Edming (R-Glen Flora) announced his intention to seek re-election as the State Representative for the 87th Assembly District. Rep. Edming was first elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2016.
“As I often tell folks, representing the 87th District in the State Assembly is the best job I ever had,” said Rep. Edming. “During my four years in office, I am proud to have advocated for the values of northern Wisconsin and worked to ensure the people in the 87th District were heard at the Capitol.”
Rep. Edming’s work this session was highlighted by the Employment First bill (Act 178) which he authored and was signed into law on March 28, 2018. This new law makes Wisconsin a national leader in promoting community-based employment for people with disabilities. This legislation, along with the other five bills Rep. Edming authored, all earned bipartisan support.
“I am proud of the work I did this session and the legislation I authored,” said Rep. Edming. “I remain humbled by the trust the people of the 87th have placed in me to serve as their voice in Madison. I look forward to meeting with folks around the district and earning their support again.”
