MADISON – State Representative Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement after Sen. Nikiya Harris Dodd’s (D-Milwaukee) announcement that she would not seek re-election this year:

“On behalf of myself, and the residents of the 18th Assembly District, I would like to thank Sen. Harris Dodd for her service to our community and steadfast dedication to the constituents we both serve.”

“Senator Harris Dodd’s commitment to improving community safety, education, and opportunities for families in Milwaukee will long be remembered by her colleagues. Sen. Harris Dodd will always be a servant to our community no matter what role she has or office she holds. Her passion for our community was evident in every floor speech she delivered, letter written, and community meeting held.”

“Senator Harris Dodd and I were elected on the same day in 2012 – before she added the Dodd! Senator Harris Dodd is not only a legislative colleague but also a personal friend. I will never forget our time serving together in office, from building urban gardens together three summers ago to just last week passing an important piece of legislation for our community.”

“I will miss serving alongside her. I wish her and her family all the best.”
