2/10/12 – Mark Born announced his candidacy last night for the 39th Assembly District seat being vacated by Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald. Born highlighted his experience as a former Alderman in Beaver Dam Ninth Ward and also the time he spent as Chairman of the Republican Party of Dodge County. He says it’s important to keep the momentum of conservative policies moving forward in Wisconsin. Born says difficult decisions have been made in the past year to improve the finances of state and local governments and Wisconsin cannot afford to slide back to past, reckless fiscal policies. There are no other Republicans currently running for the Assembly seat in the November election. Horicon Mayor James Grigg is the only democrat that has announced.
