Rep. Nygren to Resign Seat in State Assembly
“Serving the people of the 89th Assembly District has been the honor of a lifetime,” said Rep. Nygren. “Together we have accomplished a great deal for northwest Wisconsin as well as the entire state. I am humbled by the support shown for my family and me for which I will be forever grateful. Thank you.”
Rep. Nygren’s resignation will allow him to pursue career opportunities in the private sector.
Rep. Nygren has also served as the Assembly Co-Chair of the Joint Committee on Finance for four sessions. His tenure as Assembly Co-Chair is tied for the longest tenure in the Committee’s 109-year history.
“Wisconsin was in tough shape financially when I was appointed Co-Chair. Over the last eight years, we have cut taxes by a cumulative $13 billion, the state’s investment in public education is the highest in our state’s history, and the state’s rain-day fund has grown to nearly $800 million. Wisconsin is on sound financial footing and is well situated to weather the economic uncertainty created by the pandemic.”
“I have had the honor of working with some fantastic leaders and talented and committed staff throughout 14 years in the Legislature. I will always cherish the lifelong relationships we have built. Wisconsin will continue to prosper under their steady leadership.”
