Sen. Lasee to retire after 36 years in state Legislature

MADISON (WKOW) -- De Pere Senator Alan Lasee says he will not run for re-election this year, after serving in the state Legislature for more than 30 years.

The 72-year-old Republican lawmaker was elected to the Assembly in 1974 and won a special election to the Senate in 1977.

In a statement released Monday, Lasee says it took "a great deal of thought and consideration" to make his decision and thanked his family for their support (click here to read Lasee's entire statement).
