(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam lawmaker began his fifth term in the state assembly. Republican Mark Born took the oath of office at a ceremony Monday as representative of the 39th Assembly District. Born, who withstood a challenge from Democrat Izzy Hassey Nevarez in the November election, says he is honored to have been re-elected.
He says he is looking forward to continue building on the successful conservative reforms of the last decade and ensuring Wisconsin remains in strong fiscal shape. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Born says the state is facing uncertain times and there is no doubt that this next budget will come with its challenges. He says he also looks forward to working with his colleagues in the assembly and senate as well as Governor Tony Evers to craft a budget that works for the people of Wisconsin.
Born has been appointed to serve his first term as the assembly co-chair of the Joint Committee on Finance and his third term on the committee overall. He also serves on the Committee on Audit, the Joint Committee on Employment Relations, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and Joint Legislative Council.
