Nancy VanderMeer of Tomah has announced her bid for the state’s 70th Assembly District seat.  Two years ago, VanderMeer made her first bid for public office, coming up 144 votes short out of the nearly 29,000 votes cast for the seat. She is running again because she feels the district needs better representation and a strong voice for jobs and economic growth. In a press release, VanderMeer says her top priorities are providing tax relief, promoting agriculture, limiting government spending and strengthening our economy in order to create new and greater opportunities for Wisconsin families. The 70th Assembly District includes northwestern Portage County, rural Wood County, southeastern Jackson County and the northern half of Monroe County.
