Bryan Van Stippen announces bid for 35th Assembly District
TOMAHAWK - Bryan Van Stippen announced today he will run as a democrat for the the 35th assembly district.

That's the distict Rep. Mary Czaja (R-Irma) holds now.

Last year Van Stippen was elected to Stevens Point City Council.

He said based on that experience he wants to focus on local control instead of Madison politics.

"It was frustrating to see, especially serving on a finance committee, and some of the decisions we could no longer make because we didn't have opportunity to do so, so that's one of the things I want to bring back to Assembly District 35," Van Stippen said. 

Van Stippen is a lawyer for the Ho-Chunk Nation and a small business owner. He is a husband and a father to a young daughter, and they live in Deerbrook.

Besides local control, Van Stippen said he wants to focus on environment and education.

"I have a young daughter here who's going to be entering the school system," Van Stippen said. "My wife is an early childhood educator. And to me that's something that needs to be explored to ensure that she has a future in our education system and she can have the opportunities I had as I went through school."

The 35th District includes all of Lincoln County and parts of Oneida, Langlade, Marathon and Shawano counties. The election will take place in November.
