LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - La Crosse County Board Chairman Steve Doyle is announcing his candidacy for the 94th Assembly.
Doyle currently represents the County's 28th District which includes parts of the Town of Onalaska and the Village of Holmen. He's spent the last ten years as County Board Chair.
He is the second candidate to formally announce their intention to replace Rep. Mike Huebsch of West Salem, who left office to take the position of Secretary of the Department of Administration for Governor Scott Walker.
At his announcement Tuesday, Doyle says he'll focus his campaign on working together.
By doing that, jobs can be created, taxes lowered, and quality services delivered.
Only one other person, Lynnetta Kopp, has announced their candidacy. There have been several others who have considered running, but haven't announced.
Reid Magney with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board says that their department is working with the Governor's staff to set a date for the special election for the 94th Assembly seat. Magney says its likely that a primary will be set for April 5th, the same date as the Spring Election. The special election would take place four weeks later.
