Congressman Tom Petri Won’t Seek Re-election

After nearly 35 years in U.S. Congress, Tom Petri has decided not seek another term. Petri will make a statement Monday at his town hall meeting in Neenah announcing that he will not be a candidate for re-election to represent the 6th Congressional District. The town hall meeting is from 4 to 5 p.m. Monday at the Neenah City Hall. Last week State Senator Glenn Grothman announced he would be running for Petri’s seat. At the time it prompted a statement from Petri saying he respected the work Grothman has done, but also said he would run a strong campaign and expected to win.
