“I look forward to representing the commonsense, Wisconsin values of the constituents of the rural 42nd Assembly District, and I am eager to advocate on their behalf in the State Capitol.”
Jon Plumer is no stranger to hard work. He retired as a route salesman for Kraft Foods in 2011 after 30 years of service, and he currently owns and operates Plumer Karate America, which has seven locations around the state. He and his wife, Chris, have been married 44 years. Together, they are the proud parents of four daughters, and even prouder grandparents of seven grandchildren.
Jon has been active on the Lodi EMS Commission, a member of the Lodi Optimists and the Lodi Rotary Club, was recently elected to the Board of the Lake Wisconsin Alliance which is concerned with water quality issues, and served as president of Lodi and Lake Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, he started and operated the Lodi Pride Concerts in the Park series which ran weekly in the summers, and he and Chris co-founded the annual Lodi Pride free Thanksgiving dinner. Jon previously served two terms on the Columbia County Board, and two terms on the Lodi Town Board.
Inflation is on the rise across Wisconsin and increasing prices are hitting our families hard. Jon understands how families are struggling to keep up, so he led the fight to cut taxes. He also voted to stop an automatic gas tax increase and a $1 billion tax hike. As your representative, Jon will continue to fight for a balanced budget and put a stop to out-of-control government spending.
Jon ran for office to make sure our streets are safe for our families and children. That’s why he voted for tougher penalties to keep violent repeat criminals off our streets and to keep firearms out of the hands of felons. He will continue to push for common-sense policies to support local law enforcement and strengthen our laws to hold criminals accountable.
on is passionate about our rural communities. He knows small towns like ours are vital to Wisconsin’s economy. That is why he advocated for an increase in broadband funding in the last budget to keep our local businesses and communities moving forward, and authored legislation which directs opioid litigation funds to local governments to combat the opioid crisis. To maintain our small-town way of life, he will continue to advocate on behalf of our local farms and small businesses to ensure job growth here, and not just in big cities.
The last two years have been challenging for our families and schools. As a parent and grandparent, Jon understands this, that’s why he passed legislation that empowers parents with more information about what is being taught in schools, and expanded education options for families. He will always push for policies that truly put our kids first.
All Wisconsinites deserve access to high-quality healthcare, and Jon is working to ensure they have it. He passed a state budget that benefits all Wisconsin residents, protects our most vulnerable, and supports those who take care of them. He approved legislation to reduce the cost of prescription drugs and health care premiums. From our elderly, to new mothers, to those struggling with substance abuse, Jon fought hard to ensure the priorities of the people of Wisconsin are truly funded. As your representative, he will continue to push for common-sense policies to increase healthcare access and reduce cost.
With your support, I won the special election for the 42nd District, but the race is not over. On November 8th, I will once again be on the ballot and we must keep up our momentum. I need to build a strong team, and I am asking you to be part of it. Please consider hosting an event, displaying a yard sign, going door-to-door to drop literature, writing an editorial to your local paper, or making phone calls. Every volunteer we have letting the district know that I am on the ballot will help!
