4/4 Grothman to Run Against Petri for U.S. Congress

Today, State Senator Glenn Grothman issued the following statement regarding his candidacy for the 6th Congressional District: "Like all Americans, I am frustrated by a federal government that seems to
be out of control at a time when by many standards our great country is in a state of decline.  When looking at a federal debt that has risen to $17.5 trillion and an overall federal budget that has gone up by 68% since 2000. I, like others, am troubled about our country's future.*
"I am even more concerned about the massive trend towards government dependency. "The current congressman from the 6th District is a decent, genial person; nevertheless he does not have the sense of urgency which the above statistics should engender.  While there are more things to do in Madison, again and again many of the problems require changes in federal law. Whether it be welfare reform, education reform, or fiscal responsibility, we need changes from Washington.  The next six years will determine the fate of America.  Congress and the nation are at a turning point, and we need a leader that will put America back on the right path. "I will be filing a statement for candidacy later this week for the 6th Congressional District.  I have represented forty communities throughout
the 6th Congressional District in Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac and Dodge counties, some for over eighteen years.  I look forward to meeting the voters of the remainder of the 6th district in the next months to persuade them to send me to represent them in our nation's capitol."*
