State Representative Dave Craig announced his candidacy for re-election to the State Assembly today, according to a new release. Craig touted his common-sense, consistent, conservative voting record in the Assembly as the chief reason he should be re-elected to represent the 83rd District. He further indicated there is more work still to be done in Madison to improve Wisconsin’s economy.
“This past year my colleagues and I worked with Governor Walker in successfully balancing the state budget for the first time in over a decade while also adopting policies that have restored confidence in employers that Wisconsin is the place to do business,” Craig stated in the release. “However, we have more work to do in simplifying Wisconsin’s tax code, shrinking the size of government and reforming our state’s regulatory system. I look forward to continuing that work if the residents of the 83rd District re-hire me this fall.”
Following today’s announcement by Governor Walker that Act 10 had resulted in $1 Billion in savings for Wisconsin taxpayers Craig added, “The reforms Governor Walker and the legislature passed last session show a clear path to restoring Wisconsin’s economy. The days of runaway government spending and increasing taxes are behind us. With the support of the residents of the 83rd District, I look forward to continuing this important work – making sure our children are left with a better state than the one we inherited.”
Craig also noted that he will continue to fight to protect human life at all stages, uphold the 2nd Amendment and continue to lead the fight to block implementation of ObamaCare in Wisconsin.
The newly drawn 83rd district covers parts of four counties and includes Muskego, Big Bend, Vernon, Village of Waterford, Town of Waterford, Hales Corners and portions of the Town of East Troy, Town of Waukesha and City of Franklin.
