Three More Representatives to Depart the Legislature

This past week, three Assembly members- Representatives Erik Severson (R-Osceola), Donald Pridemore (R-Erin), and Dean Kaufert (R-Neenah)- added their names to a growing list of legislators not running for re-election in 2014.

Severson, chair of the Assembly Health Committee, was first elected in 2010. Pridemore, who chairs the Assembly Urban Education Committee, was first elected in 2004. Kaufert, first elected in 1990, is a former co-chair of the Joint Finance Committee and is leaving following his election this month as Mayor of Neenah. For more information see:
