“I will repay voter’s trust with hard work”

Milwaukee - Today, Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement regarding his being re-elected for the third time to represent Wisconsin’s Third Senate District.
“I am truly humbled by the trust the voters in the Third Senate District have shown in electing me again to this office. I promise to repay this trust with hard work and dedication to the interests of the people I represent.
I have lived on the South Side of Milwaukee my entire life. It is inspiring to hear from voters that even when we might not see eye-to-eye on every issue, they know my heart is in the interests of our district, and that I never forget where I come from.
The redistricting of the Third Senate District in 2012 meant that in the last two years I represented folks who, in my 30 years of public service, I had never before represented. I was honored when these new constituents told me that they never had someone represent them who would work so hard to listen to them, invite them to Town Halls and listening sessions, send them surveys, and hear their interests at their doors.”
Despite representing many new constituents in the 2012 redistricting, Senator Tim Carpenter was unopposed in the 2014 election.
“In an era where some say that people cannot effectively work together in government without relying solely on special interests or party bosses, my constituents have proven otherwise. Their interest in the issues keeps me on my toes. Their support gives me confidence.  Their trust gives me purpose.”
Tim Carpenter was first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1984 and to the State Senate in 2002.
