Press Release – PDF | New Richmond – March 10, 2016
Small businessman Rob Stafsholt (R-New Richmond) announced today that he intends to run for the 29th Assembly District which is being vacated by Representative John Murtha. Stafsholt said he is committed to creating good paying jobs for our area, expand economic development opportunities and to protect our individual freedoms if elected.
A lifelong resident of St. Croix County, Rob Stafsholt’s family has farmed in the area for 4 generations. Rob’s wide range of small business experience includes running his family’s food manufacturing company called Scoop’s Delight Salad Dressing, working as a mortgage loan originator in New Richmond, and owning and operating several rental properties.
Rob has helped manage the family farm for the past 22 years and still helps to operate the farm today. Rob has a daughter Maggie, who is 12 and attends New Richmond public schools.
“I love our area. My family has called Western Wisconsin home for 4 generations. Now I want to give back by serving the people of this district at the State Capitol. I want to put my experience as a small businessman to work for our state by building a strong economy so the private sector can create good paying jobs, enhancing economic development, reducing the size of state government, supporting educational opportunities for our children and lowering our taxes.”
Stafsholt is an active member of the New Richmond community where he has served on the Town of Erin Prairie Planning Commission. He is also a member of the New Richmond Chamber of Commerce; a Lifetime Member of the NRA, the St. Croix Republican Party, St. Croix County Farm Bureau member, Wisconsin Property Taxpayers Inc., and the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association.
Rob is a 1994 graduate of New Richmond High School and attended both UW Eau Claire and UW River Falls.
“If elected, I will work hard for family supporting jobs and economic development opportunities for our area,” stated Stafsholt. “I will also fight against fraud, waste and abuse in state government. It’s time government worked for US, not the other way around.“
Over the next few months Rob looks forward to meeting people across Assembly District 29 and asking for and earning their vote. The 29th Assembly District includes portions of St. Croix and Dunn Counties.
