State Representative Evan Goyke to Leave Assembly at End of Term


By - Apr 5th, 2024 02:12 pm

MILWAUKEE: Following his win in Tuesday’s Milwaukee City Attorney election, Representative Evan Goyke released the following statement:

“I am humbled and excited to be Milwaukee’s next City Attorney. As I reflect on my time in the State Legislature, I am proud of my history of working across the aisle to influence and achieve meaningful public policy changes. I sought to argue the facts, lift up the stories of my constituents, and do so with passion and a sense of humor.

It has been a tremendous honor and I will keep the many memories and friendships made during my time in Madison. I am grateful to my colleagues, the wonderful legislative service agencies, and the incredible staff that have worked for me. Special thanks to Ryan Knocke, who worked with me for 11 years and joined a first term legislative office and never wavered in his commitment to the residents of the 18th District.

Today, I announce that I will not seek re-election to the Legislature in 2024.

While I am not seeking re-election, I do intend to serve out the remainder of my term. With the thinnest of margins to protect and uphold Governor Evers’ veto, the stakes are too high to resign immediately. I am unwilling to hand the keys to our democracy to the Assembly Speaker. While my focus will be on the many challenges ahead as City Attorney, I am ready and willing to take on both roles for the duration of 2024 and will be present and ready to represent the residents of the 18th District in any legislative action in the months ahead.”
