Rep. Fred Clark released the following statement August 3rd regarding the upcoming primary election in the 81st AD:
“Voters in the 81st Assembly District have three committed Democratic candidates to choose from in the August 12th primary election. I respect all three candidates however I believe David Considine is clearly the best choice to represent this mostly rural district. Dave has lived and worked in the 81st for 40 years as a farmer, educator, and committed family man. He has an unusual ability to work constructively with people with opposing views without sacrificing his strong core principles. These strengths have earned Dave support from strong Democrats, independents, and conservatives, all of whose support will be critical for a Democratic win in November. With his skills, attitude, and work ethic David Considine will be an excellent Representative for the 81st Assembly District. I urge voters to support him in the primary election.”

“Dave Considine is articulate and able to clearly explain and advocate for his ideas. Furthermore, Dave is committed to listening respectfully to the viewpoints of others. He is not troubled by being asked to explain what distinguishes him from other candidates or to respond to individuals who may disagree with his positions. Dave welcomes the opportunity to talk calmly about the problems we face, discuss possible solutions and listen carefully to the input of others.
I encourage people to join me in supporting Dave Considine in the Aug. 12 primary. Dave is energetically working to meet and talk with as many citizens as he possibly can. Let’s give him the opportunity to put his time, talents and integrity to work for us in Madison.”
“As an independent voter, I have regarded the state Legislature as dysfunctional, not merely in the last few years of Republican dominance but even earlier, when Democrats were in control. The two parties vilify one another and do all they can to frustrate one another. Somewhere in this storm of partisanship, the public interest gets lost.
To address this problem, I recommend David Considine to the voters as a candidate for the 81st Assembly District seat. I have known him for several years. He is a warm, approachable, highly intelligent, very creative and thoroughly decent person.”
“I feel strongly that we are badly in need of a fresh look at governance in Wisconsin and strong, honest leaders, no matter where they come from. Dave is honest, hardworking, and in possession of a healthy dose of common sense. He recently retired after many years of teaching in the Baraboo Schools. He and his family have farmed and run a small business for 39 years…I believe Dave Considine will work hard and help bring common sense back to state government. We need elected representatives who will work for all of Wisconsin’s citizens. Dave has the ability and drive we need in an elected official. Please support Dave Considine in the Aug. 12 primary.”
On March 26th Dave Considine officially announced his campaign in the Baraboo News Republic.
“State government has taken control from communities,” Considine said Tuesday, referring to state imposed revenue caps on local school districts. “That’s why we have to do these referendums. They’re big dollar figures that I think communities would support on a yearly basis if allowed to. But they can’t because of state law.
