"Don Pridemore has been the conservative's conservative since he was elected in 2004 to the State Assembly. I have looked up to Don as a mentor over the years and have appreciated his insights and wisdom.
"No legislator has been as accessible as Don has; I would always know that he would take my phone call if it was concerns over legislation affecting the county or helping a constituent with government services.
"Whether it has been relentless advocacy for the Taxpayers' Bill of Rights, advocating for school choice as Chair of the Assembly Urban Education committee, defending the Second Amendment, respect for the sanctity of human life, or standing with Governor Walker on Act 10, conservatives knew that Don Pridemore did not just have their back, he was leading the charge. You have earned a well-deserved retirement."
