MADISON - State Representative Mark Honadel announced that he is planning to resign from the Wisconsin State Assembly.
Rep. Honadel, a republican, released a statement announcing his resignation -
Today I am announcing my resignation from the Wisconsin State Assembly. I am proud to have represented the 21st Assembly District for ten years. I will be stepping down in mid-September to pursue an opportunity in the private sector.
It has been an extreme honor and pleasure to serve my constituents as their voice in Madison. On their behalf I helped enact significant reforms that balanced the state budget without raising taxes, held the line on property taxes, and created a state surplus.
I am pleased to have worked hard on many other meaningful bills that have benefited our state’s economy and way of life for the people of Wisconsin. Most recently, The Mining for Jobs Act passed earlier this year will allow responsible and safe use of our natural resources and create thousands of good-paying jobs around our state.
I want to thank my colleagues on both sides of the aisle throughout my six sessions in the Assembly. I will always treasure my time serving with them to work on the pressing issues facing our state.
Finally, I want to thank my family, friends, and neighbors in the 21st Assembly District for their constant trust and support. Serving my state in this way has truly been a unique and special opportunity.
Honadel was first elected to the State Assembly in a special election in 2003. He has served as chairman of the Assembly Committee on Energy and Utilities, the Assembly Committee on Labor, Committees on Transportation, Workforce Development, Jobs and the Economy, and Small Business.
