MARSHFIELD – Brian Giles, of Marshfield, has announced his candidacy for the Wisconsin 69th Assembly seat.
“I have spent my whole life in Marshfield, born and raised, and along with my wife Elizabeth, we are raising our three boys here, Jeremiah, Trenton, and Alexander,” said Giles
Giles attended college at UW-Marshfield/River Falls.
“I have worked in the community including for numerous years at Mid State Truck and most recently on a presidential campaign and have volunteered on campaigns for the past 16 years,” he added. “Besides being active in the past coaching baseball, football, and soccer, I also volunteer for Meals on Wheels and donate platelets at the Blood Center.
“I decided to run for Assembly to be a voice for this district and not special interests. Most of my platform is based on issues that this district had shown overwhelming support for on referendum votes. Some of these include: getting money out of politics, fair maps, legalization of medical marijuana, and expansion of Badgercare.
“I am also a firm believer in mail in voting, especially with the current situation we are in. Voters shouldn’t have to risk their love to exercise their right to vote. I believe all people should be heard and that’s why I will stand with everyone including those too often ignored or marginalized.”
Representative Bob Kulp announced in January that he would not seek re-election to the 69th Assembly – a position he has held since 2013.
