Steineke Statement on Retirement of House Speaker Paul Ryan

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement following House Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement that he will retire from the House of Representatives at the end of this term:

“I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Paul for going above and beyond for our state and country. I have seen firsthand Paul’s dedication to Wisconsinites over the last almost twenty years, putting our values, interests, and goals at the forefront of every decision in Washington – it is a quality that we will sorely miss here at home.

“Although it is with sadness that I see Paul leaving this important post, it is also with gratitude and understanding. After giving so many years to caring for his constituents, he has earned this time to now focus on his family, and I wish him all the best as he starts this next stage of his life.”
