A fifth-generation Wisconsinite, Dave grew up in a family business, seeing firsthand the barriers to success big government places in front of small business. Hired out of college as an aide to Congressman Paul Ryan, Dave worked the next nine years helping Ryan advance the cause of limited government and the free enterprise system - while also holding a job in the private sector. Elected to represent the 83rd Assembly District in a special election in May of 2011, Dave has fought alongside Governor Walker to put Wisconsin's economy back on track, balancing the budget for the first time in over a decade, enacting concealed carry legislation and helping lead the fight against ObamaCare in Wisconsin. Before his election, Dave also served in various leadership positions in his church and also served on the Village of Big Bend Board of Trustees. In his free time, Dave enjoys spending time with his family, hunting and bowfishing. Dave and his wife, Amy, make their home in the Town of Vernon with their five children.
This week I introduced a jobs bill with my colleagues, Rep. Chad Weininger (R-Green Bay) and Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa). Wisconsin’s CASE for Jobs Act is a jobs bill that aims to reform Wisconsin’s securities laws to expand and allow our state’s job creators to harness the power of the free market by connecting Wisconsin businesses with Wisconsin investors. This bill moves our state away from “New Deal” era ideas and puts Wisconsin in the very small group of states on the cutting edge of opening up the flow of small business capital.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has more on the bill, here.
I look forward to advancing this bill through the legislature and helping our small business owners.
