Rep. VanderMeer announces re-election campaign

Wis. 70th Assembly Race repeat from 2012

TOMAH, Wis. (WKBT) – Representative Nancy VanderMeer (R-Tomah) announced she will see re-election in the 70th Assembly District, which includes parts of Monroe, Jackson, Wood and Portage Counties.

VanderMeer made the announcement Tuesday, June 23.

“It continues to be an honor and a privilege to serve the families of the 70th Assembly District. The enthusiasm and support for the campaign so far has been outstanding and I’m very thankful for that. I plan to carry the momentum forward and hope to have the opportunity to continue to serve,” VanderMeer said. “Increasing access to healthcare, expanding broadband internet access, investing in our local roads, and keeping taxes low remain top priorities. We’ve proven time and again in Wisconsin that removing bureaucratic burdens for workers and job creators, combined with responsible budgeting, allows us to make investments in our local communities. That includes investments in quality education for our children, career and workforce development programs, and taking care of our most vulnerable, including seniors and their caretakers.”

VanderMeer was first elected as State Representative in the 70th Assembly District in 2014. She currently serves as the Chairperson of the Assembly Committee on Rural Development, a position she’s held since the 2016 legislative session. She also serves as the Vice-Chairperson of the Assembly Committee on Veterans and Military Affairs and as a member of the Assembly Committees on Agriculture, Consumer Protection, Health, Labor, and Integrated Employment (Vice-Chair), Mental Health, and Tourism.
