STAR JOURNAL REPORT
Rep. Rob Swearingen has announced his bid for reelection in the 34th Assembly District. In a press release, the three-term Republican said he is proud of the work he has accomplished in the legislature to “bring more jobs and prosperity” to the Northwoods.
“I am extremely humbled by the amount of support and encouragement I have received to run for a fourth term in the assembly,” Swearingen stated. “Wisconsin is undoubtedly in better shape than it was when I was first elected. Property taxes are lower today than they were in 2010, the current statewide 2.8 percent unemployment rate is the lowest in state history, and the number of people employed in Wisconsin is at a record high. I am excited for the opportunity to continue moving Wisconsin forward in the right direction.”
Swearingen cites lowering taxes, expanding broadband, promoting tourism and addressing issues facing rural school districts as issues he advocated for in his tenure.
During his third term, Rep. Swearingen served as the Chairman of the Assembly Committee on State Affairs and the Vice Chair of the Assembly Committee on Tourism.
Additionally, he served as a member on the Assembly Committee on Environment and Forestry, the Assembly Committee on Small Business Development and the State Building Commission.
