Speaker Paul Ryan

Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) issued the following statement in regards to the retirement of Speaker Paul Ryan from the U.S. House of Representatives:

"Paul Ryan personally and in his public service has always prioritized God, family and country. I am saddened at the loss of his leadership for our country and state, but extremely happy that his family will have Dad home.

Paul Ryan has served honorably and with great compassion for the people of his district, state and country. He was a tireless advocate for Wisconsin and never lost touch with the values of his constituents.

It has been a great honor to work with Paul. I will sincerely miss his decent and humble leadership in Washington, D.C., as I continue to fight for the constituents of the 11th State Senate District."
