State Rep. Bob Ziegelbauer, (I) Manitowoc, will not be a candidate for re-election to another term in the State Legislature in the 2012 November election.
This year, Ziegelbauer will be completing his 20th year representing the 25th Assembly District in Madison.
"I am extremely grateful for the generous support from the people of our community, allowing me to work for them in the State Legislature for all this time. I am very fortunate to have been able to represent my hometown in Madison. After 20 years, I feel it is time to step aside, to give someone else the chance to serve.
"Throughout my time in office, I have always tried my best to advance the common good of our entire community, and worked hard to provide responsive and personal customer service to every constituent who has called on me. My staff has been dedicated and terrific.
"I will be forever grateful to the people of our district for their support, giving me this privilege to serve."
