Mosinee (WAOW) – Mosinee Mayor Brent Jacobson is considering entering a special election to fill the seat that will be vacated by Congressman Sean Duffy in a couple of weeks.
In a statement, Jacobson said he has “received calls and words of encouragement from supporters,” over the past two weeks.
Jacobson is serving his third term as Mayor of Mosinee.
The 35-year-old Republican is a full-time practicing attorney who was born and raised in Mosinee.
In the statement, Jacobson said, “Washington could benefit from a local government leader. Small town mayors operate on limited resources with high demands that often call upon them to do the same with less. They regularly have no choice but to make tough decisions that often means saying no. Washington’s history of saying yes has a lot to do with our crushing national debt.”
Jacobson said the decision will not be taken lightly. He will continue to discuss the decision with friends and family.
