Days after Senator Frank Lasee announced his resignation to take on a different role with the Walker administration, De Pere Republican André Jacque became the first to announce his candidacy Tuesday morning for the 1st State Senate District. Jacque currently serves in the State Assembly for the 2nd District, which covered a little bit of Kewaunee County before redistricting moved his area to cover southern Brown and northern Manitowoc Counties. Years after frequent trips to the Door Peninsula as a child, Jacque looks forward to the opportunity to serve the area on the issues most important to them like water quality.
Jacque has served in the State Assembly since 2010 and has earned Legislator of the Year honors from organizations like the Wisconsin Family Council and Mothers Against Drunk Driving along the way.
