Petitions and Communications
State of Wisconsin
Office of the Senate Assistant Majority Leader
May 1, 2015
The Honorable, the Senate:
I write to you today to set in motion the process by which to resign the 33rd Senate seat. With my recent election to serve the citizens of Waukesha County as their County Executive I find it necessary to vacate the Wisconsin State Senate; I do so with the best interest of my constituents in mind.
It is my intention to resign the position of State Senator once the State’s 2015-2015 Biennial Budget has been passed and signed into law. With that stated goal, I will fulfill my obligation to my senate district constituents to represent them with a vote on the most important piece of legislation that will be taken up during this session.
Knowing that the intent of the legislature is to complete discussion on, and subsequently pass, the biennial budget in June, and after much consideration, I will be stepping down from the Wisconsin State Senate on July 17, 2015. By expressing my resignation this early my hope is that the Governor will be able to set a Special Election date that will allow the voters to choose my successor and provide little time without a Senator representing the 33rd district.
It has been an honor and a privilege to have served the residents of the 33rd Senate District and to work with many talented individuals in the Wisconsin State Legislature.
Sincerely,
PAUL FARROW
State Senator, 33rd Senate District
