(Oshkosh, WI) – State Sen. Glenn Grothman, Republican candidate for Congress, pledged today to only serve in Congress for ten years. Grothman (R – Campbellsport) released the following statement on the pledge:
“Over the last three months as I’ve traveled throughout the 6th District meeting voters, I’ve heard a great deal of concern that they will get another Congressman who will be in Washington for 35 years like Congressman Petri.
“I, therefore, pledge to serve in Congress for a maximum of ten years, or five terms. The issues facing America are so pressing that we need to act now or we might lose our country altogether.
“The burgeoning welfare state must be addressed or we will soon have so many people who rely on the government that responsible, working people will no longer be the majority in our country. The excessive deficit spending is eroding the value of the dollar and it won’t be long until the standard of living in the American middle class will be permanently lowered. The ever-growing regulations on American businesses also need to be slashed or America’s economy will never recover from the recession.
“Quite frankly, if these issues are not solved in the next ten years, it will probably be too late.”
Grothman is a Republican candidate for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District. He currently represents the 20th Senate District in the Wisconsin State Senate. The 6th Congressional District includes the counties of Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Winnebago, Dodge, Green Lake, Manitowoc, Marquette, Columbia, Waushara, and Milwaukee.
