Ringhand Statement on 15th Senate District Candidacy
“After learning of Senator Cullen’s retirement last month, I spoke with my family, friends and neighbors about the future of our Senate seat. The decision for me is clear – now is the time to run.
“Yesterday, I resigned my position as Secretary for the Assembly Democratic Caucus. While I will continue serving in the State Assembly through the end of my term, it is important to me that our leadership team be comprised of members fully committed to returning our Caucus to the majority.
“As the saying goes, do what you love and love what you do. Since 1998, I have served the people of Rock, Green and Dane Counties, and have worked hard to make our community a better place to live, work and raise a family. As a lifelong resident of Rock County, this is a place I proudly call my home. From my time in local government on the Evansville City Council and as Mayor of Evansville, to my election and re-election to the State Assembly – I have truly done what I love and loved what I have done. However, now is the time to start a new chapter. I look forward to the days ahead and am excited to continue serving the people and places I care so deeply about.”
