Meyers won’t seek re-election to Wis. Assembly

Northern Wisconsin state Rep. Beth Meyers has announced that she will not run for re-election this fall.

Meyers, a Democrat from Bayfield, has represented the 74th Assembly District since 2015. She did not state a reason for her decision in a news release issued Wednesday.

"I am extremely grateful for the trust placed in me for the last seven years and I look forward to continuing to serve the people of the 74th for these final 12 months with the same commitment," Meyers said.

Meyers has been a part of the caucus leadership team since her first term. She is currently a ranking member on two committees, Energy and Utilities and Aging and Long-Term Care, and also serves on the Financial Institutions and Rural Development Committee.

"I am proud of my accomplishments during my time as a legislator which includes: fighting for the financial health of small businesses, ensuring a clean environment for all Wisconsinites, and protecting Governor Evers’ veto. I was proud to be the voice of my constituents on the Assembly floor," Meyers said.

Meyers was most recently re-elected to the seat in 2020 with just over 51% of the vote.

The 74th Assembly District includes all of Bayfield, Ashland, Iron, and Price counties, as well as parts of Douglas, Sawyer, and Vilas counties.
