81st Assembly District race featured on Capitol City Sunday

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- One of Wisconsin's few competitive Assembly districts will have a new state representative next year.

Retired school teacher Dave Considine is trying to keep the 81st district Democratic, while attorney Ashton Kirsch is hoping to turn it red.

The candidates are running to replace State Rep. Fred Clark, who is retiring at the end of the year.

"We've left members of our community behind and I want to serve everybody and bring those members of the community back to where they're on equal standing with us," says Considine.

"We need to create the proper worker training programs. We need to help people get the education that they need... through reducing the cost of education, the cost of higher education," Kirsch says.

You can hear more from Kirsch and Considine as they join Capitol Bureau Chief Greg Neumann on Capitol City Sunday this weekend.

Greg is also joined by Jennifer Epps-Addison from the group Wisconsin Jobs Now.
