Rep. Steineke Mourns Loss of Rep. Gannon

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement following the news that his colleague and friend, Rep. Bob Gannon, passed last night due to natural causes:

“I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and colleague, Representative Bob Gannon. During his time in the legislature, Bob proved to be a committed and effective part of our caucus, and his presence will be greatly missed. His extensive work with charities throughout the state has resulted in a better Wisconsin for everyone.
