“I have always enjoyed volunteer public service, and was encouraged to run for State Assembly by watching the great strides Wisconsin has taken since Governor Walker took office four years ago,” said Rep. Kremer. “It is my honor to serve the people of the 59th Assembly District, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in the legislature to keep Wisconsin moving forward.”
For the 2015-16 session Rep. Kremer has been appointed to serve as Vice Chair of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. “My extensive experience in the public safety arena, including my service as a Wisconsin National Guard war veteran, volunteer Kewaskum Firefighter and EMT, and two years as an Emergency Services Dispatcher will be a great asset to me as I serve as Vice Chair of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee,” said Kremer.
