Another member of Assembly not running for re-election

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Republican Rep. Erik Severson announced Monday he won't seek re-election to the Assembly, becoming the 11th Republican and 17th member overall to announce they will not return next year.

Severson served two terms, first winning election in 2010.

The emergency room doctor from Osceola chaired a special task force on mental health this session that helped guide the passage of more than a dozen bills designed to improve services statewide. His vice-chair on that committee, Democratic Rep. Sandy Pasch, is also not running for re-election.

Severson says he's looking forward to spending more time with his family.

Republicans currently hold a 60-39 majority in the Assembly, with all 99 seats up for election this November.
