The 102nd session of the Wisconsin State Assembly began Jan. 6 with inaugural ceremonies at the State Capitol. State Rep. Ed Brooks (R-Reedsburg) was joined by family as he took the oath of office for the fourth time.
Brooks’s tenure in the Assembly stands in contrast to the rest of the body. More than half of the 99 representatives have served for two years or less. In a body marked by change, Brooks has been a clear and consistent voice for rural Wisconsin for six years and counting.
“I’m honored to serve the people of the 50th District in the State Assembly,” said Brooks. “I am proud to advocate for policies that grow our economy, strengthen rural education, and protect our way of life. I’m looking forward to another busy and productive session.”
Brooks, whose district includes Greenwood township, will once again serve as Chairman of the Urban and Local Affairs Committee, which he has chaired since 2011. In addition, he is a member of the Committees on Agriculture, Corrections, Mining and Rural Development, and Interstate Affairs.
