|Liebert Campaign: Sam Liebert announces exploration to run for state Assembly|
Janesville City Councilmember, Sam Liebert, announced today that he is considering a possible run for the 44th Assembly District to the Wisconsin Legislature. Liebert would be on the Democratic ballot for the August 14th primary.
“I’ve truly been inspired by the Recall Walker movement,” Liebert said. “The volunteers who gave up birthdays, holidays and family time to recall this extreme Governor are a true testament to our Wisconsin pride in democracy. I believe I could now play a part in continuing this movement’s message to Madison.” Liebert added.
Sam is currently in the exploratory phase of deciding to officially jump in the race. “I’m meeting with friends and family to discuss this decision. Deciding whether or not to run is the hardest decision any candidate can make, and you have to make sure your family and closest friends are right there with you every step of the way.” Liebert said.
Sam has lived in Janesville for 22 years and is currently a Janesville City Councilmember. He has also worked at the grassroots level for several progressive and Democratic elected officials such as President Barack Obama, US Senator Russ Feingold, Mayor Tom Barrett and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.
Sam attended the University of Wisconsin-Rock County seeking a degree in History and Politics. He currently lives on the West side of Janesville a few blocks from his Alma Mater, Parker High School, where he graduated in 2003.
