Marinette, WI - Karl Jaeger (Town of Peshtigo) announced his decision to run for the 89th State Assembly District last night, calling for “greater accountability and heightened focus on issues affecting the residents of the District. We need our elected leaders to put people first.” He confirmed his plans while meeting with members of the Town of Peshtigo Citizens Advisory Committee.

karl-jaegerJaeger has been a strong advocate for more State attention to the drinking water contamination issues that plague northeast Wisconsin. He is a member of the Citizens PFAS Advisory Committee, a Town of Peshtigo group that advocates for clean, safe drinking water in Marinette County in the wake of the massive JCI/Tyco PFAS contamination crisis.

Jaeger also pointed to the current COVID-19 health crisis, noting that thousands of Wisconsinites have lost their jobs, and with them, their health insurance. He noted that the Legislative leadership in Madison has yet to introduce or even bring forward any plan to alleviate this burden on Wisconsin’s uninsured families or make any effort to develop a state-wide coordinated response to the economic impact of the virus on the economy.

“I want to thank the many people who have encouraged me to throw my hat in the ring and have offered to help. I think it reflects a pent-up frustration with the status quo and a sense that all the partisanship in Madison is really over the top. The Legislature needs a fresh start. A few less talkers and a few more doers who haven’t forgotten why they are there—to put people first,” he concluded.

Mr. Jaeger was elected to the Marinette County Board of Supervisors in April. He graduated from Northern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in History. He previously earned the endorsement of Wisconsin Conservation Voters for his dedication to protecting Wisconsin’s environment. He and his family live in the Town of Peshtigo.
