FDL Attorney Announces Candidacy For State Assembly Seat
Fond du Lac attorney Paul Czisny is hoping the third time is the charm when it comes to running for the 52nd State Assembly seat. He ran for the seat in 2010 and again in 2012, losing both times to current State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt. Czisny says since Republicans captured the majority there has been a decline in the quality of life from protection of the state’s natural resources to funding for schools. He says funding transportation doesn’t just mean maintaining our roads. He says a mistake was made when the state took a pass on Interstate Rail in 2011. He says unfortunately a survey found Wisconsin leads the nation in one unenviable category. He says we are number one in the decline of the middle class and he says a big part of that has to do with the decrease in education spending. Czisny feels the minimum wage should be raised, that Voter ID has disenfranchised voters, and that passing right to work was a mistake.
Fond du Lac Attorney and County Democratic Party chair Paul Czisny will announce his candidacy and kick off his campaign for the 52nd State Assembly seat tonight. The announcement is at 7 p.m. at Fond du Lac County Labor Hall in Fond du Lac. Former Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager and State Representative Gordon Hintz will be special guests at the event. Remarks by Czisny and his guests will be followed by a fundraising social. Czisny has run for the seat twice before losing both times to State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt who he will challenge again this fall. Czisny will be a guest on the Morning Show with Bob Hoffmaster at 11:30 this morning.
