Lancaster Mayor David Varnam to Run for Lieutenant Governor
Brings tested, trusted and true leadership for all of Wisconsin
“We are in a crucial time for our state. We looked to our governor and lieutenant governor for leadership as we faced COVID-19, riots and an uncertain economy. Instead of leadership, we received uncertainty, excuses and refusals to meet with Republican leaders,” Varnam said. “We need a lieutenant governor who will work to reduce taxes on our residents and businesses, stand up for the unborn and listen to the needs of our communities.”
“I listened to my community and achieved significant progress in Lancaster,” he explained. “As Wisconsin’s next lieutenant governor, I will prioritize the people of Wisconsin to create a state where businesses and families can thrive.”
Varnam stood up for taxpayers as mayor by vetoing a 40 percent stormwater fee increase, defeating a proposed wheel tax and keeping Lancaster the city with the lowest property taxes in Grant County.
Varnam was first elected mayor in April 2016 after serving nearly three years as a member of the Lancaster Common Council. He is the past-president of Grant County Economic Development and a board member of the Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce.
Varnam also has served as a U.S. congressional aide and represented the global Christian ministry Focus on the Family on federal issues as an issues-response analyst.
“I look forward to traveling throughout Wisconsin this next year and hearing directly from residents,” Varnam said. “As the next lieutenant governor, I will work hard for all of Wisconsin.”
