A Wisconsin Rapids Attorney and President of the Port Edwards School Board announced on Tuesday that he will run for the State Assembly in the 72nd District this fall.

Dana Duncan, a Democrat, has lived in Port Edwards since 2003, after moving from Wisconsin Rapids.

In a press release, Duncan said Wisconsinites deserve the same opportunities that he was able to take advantage of and make himself into a successful business owner and civil servant. Duncan wants to focus on important issues like jobs and the economy, education, healthcare, and bridging the partisan divide if elected to the Assembly. He wants to put an end to the dysfunction that has negatively impacted economic growth in the state for the last four years, and rely on a history of bipartisan problem solving he used while on the School Board to return Madison to a center of progress in the country.

The 72nd District includes the Adams, Wood and Waushara counties.

The 72nd Assembly District seat is currently held by Republican Rep. Scott Krug, of Nekoosa.
