Candidate Biography

From candidate Website

Respected as a responsive, hardworking, and effective legislator, Fred Clark brings rural Wisconsin's progressive tradition to the Capitol.
His long experience as a contractor and small business owner, and rural farm resident, serves him well as a representative to a rural area.
Elected in 2008, Fred won re-election to his second term in the Wisconsin Assembly in 2010.
In the Wisconsin legislature, Fred has been a common-sense advocate for the 42nd District, willing to push hard on issues of importance to rural Wisconsin, and building diverse coalitions to pass important legislation.
In his freshman term, Fred was the Chair of the Forestry Committee and Vice-chair of the Tourism, Recreation, and State Properties Committee. He currently serves on the Assembly Natural Resources Committee, one of the most active committees in the legislature, the Education Committee, the Rules Committee, and the Tourism, Recreation and State Properties Committee.
Fred was appointed by Governor Tommy Thompson to the Lower Wisconsin Riverway Board in 1998.
He was appointed by Governor Doyle in 2004 to serve on the Wisconsin Council on Forestry, and was appointed by Doyle to the Wisconsin Council on Tourism in 2009. He served in 2009-2010 on the Speaker's Taskforce on Preventing Home Foreclosure.
Clark's experience as a business owner, as husband and father, his knowledge of Wisconsin and its people, and his commitment to the communities of south-central Wisconsin provide an excellent foundation for his continuing role representing the 55,000 people of the 81st Assembly District.
