It is wonderful to see good people take a few years out of their lives to serve their community in the legislature and then return to the private sector. Congratulations to Rep. Kremer on his retirement from public office and may he enjoy the remainder of his career.
Jesse Kremer’s time as the state representative for the 59th state assembly district will come to an end after four years in the role.
In 2014, Kremer ran against three other Republicans and was unopposed in the general election. In 2016, the conservative ran unopposed without facing other Republicans in a primary.
A statement from Kremer’s office in Madison said, “Rep. Kremer will be returning to the private sector to continue his primary career path as a pilot for a growing and well respected Wisconsin family supporting job creator.”
The representative is an army veteran who served a tour in Iraq during the 2003 invasion of the country. His career, however, has been spent as a pilot, something he plans to return to.
During his speech announcing his decision, he stated he would soon be traveling to Dallas for three weeks of training to pilot a Gulfstream IV aircraft.
“I never looked at this as a career,” Kremer said. He later explained that those in politics should term limit themselves and that each person takes a different amount of time to accomplish their goals.
