Statement on the Retirement of Senator Tim Cullen
MADISON – The following is a statement of Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on Senator Tim Cullen's announcement today.
"I want to thank my friend, Senator Tim Cullen for what will be 16 years of dedicated service to the state senate of Wisconsin. Tim and I came into the Senate in 2011 together and I've always appreciated his insight as we sat together on the senate floor. While I will be sad to see him leave, we are tremendously grateful for Senator Cullen's investments in the people of the 15th Senate District and in the state of Wisconsin. From his thoughtful contributions as we fought for sustainable, responsible mining reform to his deep knowledge of education and health care, Senator Cullen has provided the State Senate and the Senate Democratic Caucus with an important perspective and provoked thoughtful debate raising the level of discourse on all issues. We wish him well as he moves to tackle his next challenge with the same thoughtfulness, dedication, and balance we know him for."
