Three New Members of State Assembly Sworn In

The Assembly gained three new members on Tuesday when winners of the May 3 special election were sworn in by Justice David Prosser. Democrat Steve Doyle of Onalaska and Republicans Duey Stroebel of Saukville and Dave Craig of Big Bend will serve the balance of the current term of Republican Mike Huebsch (94th District), Republican Mark Gottlieb (60th District) and Republican Scott Gunderson (83rd District), respectively. The three Republicans resigned to join Gov. Walker’s cabinet.

The partisan makeup of the Assembly is now 59 Republicans, 38 Democrats, 1 Independent and 1 vacancy (District 48, vacated by Democrat Joe Parisi, who was elected Dane County Executive).
