Candidates and Issues - WXOW - WI - State Senate 32 - Bill Feehan


Bill Feehan

Candidate Statement

Hi, I'm Bill Feehan.  I'm running to be your next State Senator. I'd like to earn your vote. I believe we need better leadership in Madison. As I've traveled around Western Wisconsin, I've listened to people who are hurting. They want to know how we can grow our economy and create jobs. Earlier this year, Wisconsin had an opportunity to pass the mining bill that would have created thousands of high paying jobs. It failed by one vote. I say yes to mining and family supporting jobs.  People want a leader who is willing to work with the other side.  That's why I pledge to meet with every State Senator, Republican and Democrat. We need a leader who will put Wisconsin families ahead of partisan politics. As a small business owner with my wife Sue Kolve-Feehan, I believe I have the experience to get Wisconsin working again. I hope you'll take more time to learn about our campaign at I believe the best is yet to come for Western Wisconsin and I'm asking for your vote on November 6th.



Bill Feehan was born in 1960 to Bill Feehan, Sr. and Barbara. The oldest of six siblings, his family came from rural Iowa, where he learned the value of hard work from his Irish-Italian Catholic family.

He's a husband, father, grandfather, and a candidate for Wisconsin's 32nd Senate district.


Bill has spent his life in business. He started his first small business, a lawn care company, at the age of 27. At 32, he opened his second business, a bar and restaurant. He went on to become a manufacturer's rep for a global food manufacturing company for 16 years, a career he's leaving to run for State Senate.

In 2004 Bill married Sue Kolve-Feehan, who started her salon 27 years ago in downtown La Crosse. Six years ago Bill and Sue opened a new business, the Salon Professional Academy cosmetology school in Onalaska. Today, their businesses employ more than 70 people.


Bill is a fiscal conservative from his experience in business, and he's been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business.

He's also a pro-life social conservative, earning the endorsement of Wisconsin Right to Life. He's a lifelong outdoorsman and a strong advocate for our Second Amendment rights, earning an A rating from the NRA and the endorsement of the United Sportsmen of Wisconsin.

Bill got involved in politics for all the right reasons: to speak up for taxpayers on the La Crosse County Board and to champion economic growth. That's why he's running for State Senate.

A Solid Conservative

A Lifetime in Business
