(Madison) Representative Will Penterman was sworn-in to the State Assembly this week. The Republican from Columbus defeated Democrat Pete Adams earlier this month for the District 37 seat. He will fill out the remainder of the two-year term that opened when John Jagler won his own special election in April to the State Senate. During his oath of office ceremony held at the Dodge County Courthouse, Penterman said it is an honor to begin representing the 37th Assembly District and that he is committed to building on the strong foundation of fiscal responsibility that has been set. He said that he is excited to dive right in and hit the ground running to stand up against the Executive Branch who continues to spend more tax dollars. Penterman noted that his priorities include fostering a business friendly environment through common sense, pro-growth reforms. The 37th Assembly District stretches across four counties and consists of the Dodge County Townships of Elba, Emmet, and Lebanon, along with the villages of Lowell and Reeseville and cities including Columbus and Watertown.
