Madison – Today, Rep. Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton) released the following statement after Rep. Jason Fields (D-Milwaukee) announced his retirement from the legislature.

He is open-minded, strong willed and willing to work together for what’s best for his district and the people of Wisconsin.”

The exchange provided the opportunity for us all to better understand and appreciate the different areas and unique places we serve”
“Jason will be greatly missed in the legislature. My staff and I wish him and Tasha the best of luck; I know he will excel at whatever comes next.”
