Mondovi (WQOW) - Charlene Warner, of rural Mondovi, announced her candidacy for Wisconsin’s 93rd Assembly District. Warner, a Democrat, is currently the only challenger to incumbent Warren Petryk.
“Growing up on our small family farm in Trempealeau County, my family and I worked hard for what we had, and I always felt that there was a world of possibilities for me," said Warner. “However, in many of the rural areas of Wisconsin that is no longer the case. I have been devastated to see the loss of family farms and the tragic decline in support for public schools. Children can no longer dream of a world of opportunity after graduation, because they are too worried about where their next meal will come from. That is why I am running for State Assembly."
Warner attended UW-Oshkosh before becoming a real estate agent. She owned and managed real estate companies and served on REALTOR and MLS boards for Janesville, the Fox Valley and the Wisconsin Realtors Association. Warner taught real estate law and ethics in Janesville, Madison, Appleton, Beloit, Illinois and Arizona.
She is married, has grown children and 3 young granddaughters.
“I have great passion for serving the public and after years of consensus building and putting the needs of my clients first, it is clear to me that I can best serve our community and state by becoming your next assembly representative,” said Warner. “I look forward to talking with the people of the 93rd Assembly District and learning more about their vision for the future of Wisconsin.”
The 93rd is a far-reaching district including four townships in Eau Claire County, Pepin County, Maxville Township in Buffalo County, most of Pierce County and the southern five townships of Dunn County. Election day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
