Rep. Kremer Heads Home

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.

    A great loss to Assembly…especially when you look at some of the debris on the Democrat side.   Kremer was more effective in 4 years than Red Fred in 50.

    I think Rep. Kremer is following the intentions of our Founding Fathers.  Wish others would take his example to heart and also return to the private sector.

    Maybe he realized his credibility in the legislature was shot after his colleagues heard the  “the earth is 6000 years old, that is a fact” claim.

    >Maybe he realized his credibility … was shot

    We are holding out hope that you become as elightened.

    When I start making totally false proclamations like Kremer did, you bet I’ll head for cover.   After today RoJo should as well.

    Sounds like you expect your elected officials to tout your own religion.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, just want them to be truthful.

    False proclamations…sort of like three 500-year floods to hit Houston in a year.

    Not that same old tired argument again.

    Since the topic has arisen, let’s have some fun.
    Who here thinks the earth is less than 6000 years old?
    I’ll start: I don’t.

    Some are apparently on the wrong website and think this is a chat room.  I would suggest

    On topic, I judge my elected representatives on how well they represent me not where they go to church, their skin color or sex.
