MADISON – Senator Melissa Agard (D-Madison) was sworn in as the next State Senator for the 16th Senate District. In a socially distant ceremony, Senator Agard was sworn-in by Supreme Court Justice Jill Karofksy and signed her name as the 32nd female state senator in Wisconsin history.
Senator Agard released this statement on her swearing-in:
I am eager to begin my fifth term in state government in a new chamber. I am grateful for the lessons I learned during my time in the Assembly, as well as the relationships I have made with my Assembly colleagues. I look forward to continuing to advocate for the shared values of my district, as well as collaborating with newly elected and veteran legislators, in both the Senate and the Assembly, to work together to make Wisconsin a better place for everyone.
It’s clear that, even during times like this, Wisconsinites from across my district and across the state want to know that Wisconsin is a safe place for everyone to reach for their dreams; where we can invest in a better tomorrow; where future generations want to live, work, and raise a family; where we lift each other up and move forward; and where we plant seeds for tomorrow.
I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work for my district and the state of Wisconsin. Let’s get to work!”
