MADISON, WI – Today, Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley (D-Delta) released the following statement regarding her decision not to run for re-election to the Wisconsin State Senate.
“Serving the people of Northern Wisconsin in the State Legislature has been the honor of my lifetime. When I first ran for office in 2010, I had no idea how rewarding it would be to represent one of the most beautiful and creative parts of this great state. After 4 years in the Assembly and almost 8 years in the Senate, it is time for me to make way for a new generation of progressive and pragmatic leaders from a part of the state that has produced so many.
“I love being a Senator, but am looking forward to spending more time with my husband, who recently retired himself, as well as my children and grandchildren. I remain committed to leading my colleagues in the Senate as we finish up the 2021-22 Session and supporting Governor Evers as he moves Wisconsin forward.”
