Petrowski announces for 29th SD

GOP state Rep. Jerry Petrowski announced today he will run for the 29th SD to replace fellow Republican Pam Galloway, who resigned her seat last week.

Petrowski, R-Marathon, and Rep. Mary Williams, R-Medford, said last week they would consider running to replace Galloway, who faced a recall election and said she resigned because of illness in her family. But Williams appeared at a news conference today in Wausau to praise Petrowski's candidacy.

Petrowski said he believed as state senator he would have the opportunity to have a greater influence on the issues facing the 29th SD.

"This election should not be about partisan politics," Petrowski said. "It should be about how we best move forward by working together."

Dem Rep. Donna Seidel, who has already announced plans to run for the seat, said this afternoon Petrowski has supported the same "extreme" agenda in the Assembly that Galloway did in the Senate and voters do not support.

"They want to make sure that our kids continue to receive a quality education, everyone has access to affordable health care and that we return to our tradition of clean and open government," she said. "Pam Galloway did not represent these values and neither does Jerry Petrowski."
