Town of Lisbon — Town Chairman Matt Gehrke thought about campaigning to succeed retiring State Representative Don Pridemore in the newly created 22nd Assembly District but instead decided to endorse the candidacy of Waukesha County Board member Janel Brandtjen of Menomonee Falls.......
"Additionally, both personally and professionally, the timing is just not right. What made the decision much easier was seeing another true conservative get into the race like Janel Brandtjen. What is most important to me is that our assembly district continues to be represented by a true conservative who represents the residents of Lisbon and the entire 22nd Assembly District as well," Gehrke added.
Brandtjen made a brief appearance before the Lisbon Town Board last week to introduce herself to elected and appointed town officials.
