MADISON (WKOW) -- Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, welcomed a new member into the state Assembly today. Rep. Jon Plumer, R-Lodi, was sworn in by the speaker during a ceremony held at the state Capitol. He was elected to represent Wisconsin's south-central 42nd Assembly District during a special election. 

Speaker Vos released the following statement.

"I'm excited for Jon to get started working on the issues important to his district and the entire state of Wisconsin. As a small business owner, Jon has been a trusted part of his community for many years. His focus and commitment to that community drives his passion for public service, which he can now put to good use in the Assembly". 

Earlier this month, Plumer defeated Democratic candidate Ann Groves Lloyd. His win is a win for the Republican caucus, strengthening its hold on the Assembly majority, which is now 64-35.

"Jon will be an outstanding legislator and a great addition to our Assembly Republican caucus. His election brings us back to our historic majority, holding 64 seats in the chamber," Vos said.

Plumer will have to run again in November in order to retain his seat. The legislature is not expected to convene again until January.
