MADISON – Rep. Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement regarding today’s Assembly Democratic leadership election and his election to a fourth term as Assembly Democratic Leader:

“I am honored and humbled by my reelection. I have the utmost appreciation and respect for my colleagues in the Assembly, and I know we will work tirelessly together for our state in the years ahead.

“These past two years, I’ve traveled the state and heard many common concerns. Wisconsinites, rural and urban alike, all want high-quality schools, family-supporting jobs, better infrastructure and a stronger middle class. We will work across the state to advance a Democratic message that speaks to everyone, and we will not be afraid to push back when the needs of average citizens are being overlooked.

“This was a tough and surprising election for our party, but there is an important caveat—most voters agree that our state is going in the wrong direction. We will not give up the fight for Wisconsin families, a flourishing economy that works for everyone, and a better future for children in the Badger state.”

Rep. Barca also welcomes the 103rd Wisconsin Assembly Democratic Leadership Team:

Assistant Minority Leader: Rep. Dianne Hesselbein (D-Middleton)
Minority Caucus Chair: Rep. Mark Spreitzer (D-Beloit)
Minority Caucus Vice Chair: Rep. Steve Doyle (D-Onalaska)
Minority Caucus Secretary: Rep. Beth Meyers (D-Bayfield)
Minority Caucus Sergeant at Arms: Rep. Christine Sinicki (D-Milwaukee)
