Candidate steps forward for 98th Assembly seat

Nov. 8, 2012

A candidate has stepped forward as a candidate for the 98th Assembly seat, which is expected to be vacated if Rep. Paul Farrow (R-Pewakee) takes the 33rd State Senate seat in the December election.

Matt Morzy (R-Waukesha) will seek Farrow's Asssembly seat.

Farrow won both the primary for the Senate position and the 98th Assembly spot in Tuesday's election. He is uncontested in December's general election for the Senate seat. If he wins that election, his Assembly seat would be vacated and would be filled in a special election, possibly in spring. Gov. Scott Walker has not set a date for such an election.

“I hope to continue to deliver the same great representation to the 98th Assembly district that (Farrow) provided,” Morzy said in a prepared statement. “I am a proud supporter of the fiscal commonsense approach to leadership that Gov. Walker and the Wisconsin Republicans have shown in the last two years. I pledge that I will look to pass budgets that provide for us now and in the future, work to improve the economic outlook in Wisconsin, and to provide for our veterans that have sacrificed so much for us.”
 

A lifelong Wisconsin resident, Morzy has lived in Waukesha County since he enrolled at Carroll University in 2001. He graduated in 2005 from Carroll with a bachelor's of business administration in finance and is pursuing a master's degree in finance from Marqueet University.
