Who's Running for Office in Wisconsin 2012: 13th Assembly District

Public libraries in the 13th Assembly District:

David Cullen, who currently represents 13th Assembly District, was first elected in a special election in May 1990 and has been re-elected through 2010.  The seat is open as Cullen's home was not included in the extensively redrawn district.  [Compare.]  He now serves on the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.

Rob Hutton

Brookfield Republican Rob Hutton running for State Assembly.  (Brookfield Patch, 4/16/2012)

Excerpt:   Hutton, who lives in Brookfield, said he wants to start his campaign around Tax Day because he will run on a platform of fiscal responsibility. On his campaign Facebook page, he describes himself as a conservative and pro-life Republican. 

“Today we are witnessing a government that is unrestrained in its spending and regulation policies,” Hutton said in a press release. “We need more elected officials that will take a stand, like Governor Walker, by advocating for economic freedom through real budget and spending disciplines.” 

Hutton is currently the president and owner of Rock Transfer & Storage, Inc., a Milwaukee-based company with 110 employees. He also spent the past seven years as a supervisor on the Waukesha County Board. Hutton grew up in Brookfield, graduated from Brookfield East High School, and earned his bachelor's degree in history from UW-Whitewater. 

He currently lives in Brookfield with his wife Patti and four children ages 8 to 14.
