Jerry Petrowski looks ahead to June recall election


Since republican Jerry Petrowski's name was not on the primary ballot, he said Tuesday felt like just another day on the campaign trail. He spent a good part of the day putting up signs around the district and meeting voters.

Petrowski is running to keep the 29th district senate seat for the republican party. This, after Pam Galloway announced her resignation in March. During the past two months, Petrowski said he's been overwhelmed by the response from voters across the district -- supporting him in this race. The Wausau native said he plans to focus on what matters most to voters. To him -- that includes bringing more jobs to the state.

"I think it's people that makes politics the way they are," said Petrowski. "And it's unfortunate because people need to work together and focus on what's best for the people here and what's best for Wisconsin. Will there be some tough issues to deal with? Absolutely. But I think we need to pull together focus on jobs, move the state forward and get our economy going. That's what I intend on doing and that's what work for."

As for the next month leading up to June's general election, Petrowski said he plans to continue meeting voters and sharing his plans for the future. Petrowski currently serves on the state assembly, representing the 86th district. As of now, the state senate is split -- with 16 members from each party. Three of the republican spots -- as well as the empty 29th district seat -- are up for grabs in next month's recall election.
