Kleefisch announced last April he would not seek re-election in November. The Waukesha North High School graduate who represents Oconomowoc and the surrounding area said he will now have more time to spend with his daughters, Ella Rose, 15, and Violet, 12.
“There was nothing left on the table,” Kleefisch said. “My children, while growing up, have never really had a parent that was not in elected office. The vast majority of their lives, their parents have both been in elected office. It will be nice to have at least one parent in the private sector.”
