Juneau County organic farmer Tony Kurtz announced on Tuesday that he is running to represent the 50th Assembly district. Kurtz entered the race following fellow Republican Ed Brooks’s retirement from the seat.
“For the last decade, Ed Brooks has been a strong voice for rural Central and Western Wisconsin, and I want to thank him for his service,” said Kurtz. “I’m running for State Representative to continue Ed’s strong legacy. I aim to secure access to rural health care, create more job opportunities, ensure quality local schools, and hold the line on taxes.”
