04/03/2020- Following months of consideration, Representative John Nygren of Marinette has announced he won’t seek the 30th Senate District seat in November’s election. Nygren, who currently serves as co-chair of Wisconsin’s Joint Committee on Finance credits his decision to forgo the race largely to the COVID-19 pandemic, stating he feels his role as co-chair of the Committee will be more important than ever when dealing with the severe financial impacts of the outbreak. He says he will run for reelection this year for the 89th Assembly District- a position he was first elected to in 2006. Senator Dave Hansen announced in January his intention to retire from his 30th District seat and will step down at the end of the year.
