About Knudson for Assembly
Dean has a strong commitment to public service, protecting taxpayers and working together to build a better Wisconsin.
In 2010, with Wisconsin facing a huge budget deficit and the crushing loss of both jobs and employers from our state, Dean ran for Assembly with three simple objectives: more jobs, lower taxes and better education. Today Wisconsin has made great progress, but there is still more work to be done.
We've lowered taxes by over $2 Billion; balanced the budget, not only eliminating the surplus but establishing the largest "rainy day fund" balance ever; cut property taxes; reformed government; added 100,000 jobs and thousands of businesses; and improved education with a focus on reading and job training.
Dean served as Hudson's mayor prior to serving in the Assembly. He has a record of finding innovative ways to lower taxes while providing quality services. His common sense solutions and fiscally conservative approach earned him a spot on the legislature's Joint Committee on Finance, the group that writes the state's budget every two years.
