Press Release: Bob Donovan Announces Run for State Assembly

Please share!

In an email to the Wisconsin Conservative Digest, Bob Donovan, announced his run for State Assembly in the 84th District. This seat is currently held by Assemblyman Mike Kuglistch, who is retiring. The seat has been redrawn by the Republicans in the state Legislature. The Republican maps were approved in a 4-3 decision by the State Supreme Court. The 84th Assembly District represents the suburbs of Greenfield, Hales Corners and parts of the City of Milwaukee.

Wisconsin Right Now first reported that Bob Donovan was considering a run for State Assembly and reported a few days after that Donovan will indeed run for Assembly.

He will be running in the Republican Primary against current Republican Party of Milwaukee County (RPMC) Chairman, David Karst. Karst has come under significant heat from conservatives in Milwaukee County regarding his tenure with the RPMC. Conservative activist, Paris Procopis, took Karst to task in his op-ed in Wisconsin Right Now. Procopis accused Karst of abandoning local conservatives, Milwaukee County Supervisors Patti Logsdon and Deanna Alexander, during their run in the April 5 Spring election. Both Logsdon and Alexander won their respected elections “without support from Karst and the RPMC,” according to Procopis. Procopis also lays his case against Karst running and calls for him to resign as Chair of the RPMC.

Donovan recently ran for Mayor of Milwaukee and lost to current Mayor Cavalier Johnson. Prior to running for Mayor, Donovan was an Alderman on Milwaukee’s southside (District 8) for four terms (2000-2016) and ran unsuccessfully for State Assembly as a Republican in 1982, the same year the Milwaukee Brewers went to the World Series.

Bob Donovan Announces Run for State Assembly 

Greenfield, WI – Republican candidate and former Milwaukee Alderman, Bob Donovan, announced today that he will run for state Assembly in the 84th District. Upon his announcement, Donovan released the following statement:

“First and foremost, I believe I have a great deal to offer and continue to want to make a difference—I believe public service is my vocation in life. Second, as we are all aware, the chaos going on in Milwaukee continues to spread to Milwaukee suburbs and I want to play a role in stopping that. Third, a partnership with the state of Wisconsin is essential to meaningfully addressing the Milwaukee area’s public safety and fiscal challenges—if a partnership is created, I would like to play a role in just how that looks.

“I’ve fought the good fight in Milwaukee’s City Hall. I plan to take my common-sense conservative message to Madison to make effective change and support policies that re-establish law and order in our neighborhoods, parental rights, and choice in education, fix our elections, rebuild our roads and crumbling infrastructure, secure the rights of the unborn and defend our 2nd Amendment rights. Common-sense conservative solutions work, and I look forward to running a positive campaign focused on solutions that uplift the citizens in the 84th Assembly District.
