(Columbus) The race for the state senate seat being vacated by Scott Fitzgerald continues to take shape. Republican Todd Menzel of Columbus has announced that he is running for the 13th State Senate District seat. Republicans John Jagler and Don Pridemore are among the candidates that had previously announced. The primary election will be held on February 16th.
Menzel is a business owner with 20 years of leadership experience, serving as the Chief Executive Officer of Menzel Enterprises, Inc. He says he is seeking office because he has real-life experience as an entrepreneur, rather than a longtime politician, to negotiate and bring common-sense solutions to Wisconsin. Campaign focuses will include the economy, helping small businesses, workforce development, education, police training and transportation.
Menzel says now more than ever we need strong leaders to reopen the economy and help small businesses that have been shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He adds the state needs to look at how large and small businesses are regulated to find a modern approach to these problems. Menzel and his wife live in the Town of Bristol where they are raising their three children.
