Election Day victories for UW-Green Bay grads in Senate, Assembly
State Sen. Frank Lasee, R-Ledgeview, was re-elected to the 1st Senate District seat in Tuesday’s election, outpolling challenger Dean DeBroux by better than a 3-2 ratio. Lasee, a 1986 graduate of UW-Green Bay, was first elected to the state Senate in 2010 after serving in the Assembly for 14 years. He rejoins fellow Phoenix alumni Dave Hansen ’71 and Rob Cowles ’75 — midway through their four-year terms, they weren’t on Tuesday’s ballots — to give UW-Green Bay three grads in the 33-senator upper house. Also winning reelection to the Legislature was Rep. Scott Krug, R-Rome (Wisconsin Rapids area), who will take a third term as District 72’s State Assembly representative. Krug owns NEW Opportunities, an employment and training company. He studied psychology and graduated from UW-Green Bay in May 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Prior to joining the state Assembly, he worked for the Juneau County Sheriff’s Department and as a discharge planner at the Wood County Jail. Read more on Krug, and his win.
