Candidate Biography

Representative Paul Farrow (R-Pewaukee) was first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 2010, and is currently serving his first term.

A lifelong resident of the 33rd Senate District, Paul has been married to his wife, Amy, for 25 years.  They have been blessed with two sons, Andrew (19) and Jarod (14).

After graduating from Waukesha County Technical Institute in 1987, Paul later graduated from Carroll College in 1991, with a degree in business administration.

Paul has over 15 years experience as a small-business owner in southeast Wisconsin.  Today, Paul and his partners continue to operate House to Home Services, LLC.

Paul has extensive experience in both local government and nonprofit organizations.  He is a former member of the Richmond School Board, in the Town of Lisbon, and currently serves on the Presidential Advisory Board of Carroll College.  He has previously served as State Director for the Youth in Government program for the YMCA’S in Wisconsin.  A lifelong outdoorsman, Paul is the Immediate-Past President of the World Musky Hunt, Inc. and a current board-member.

During his first two years in the legislature, Paul has focused on transportation and education issues – both key to improving Wisconsin’s economy.  He currently serves as the Vice-Chairman of the Assembly Transportation Committee, and as a voting member of other committees including Housing and Colleges & Universities.  He also serves as a member of the statewide Transportation Projects Commission.

At Paul’s request, earlier this year the Legislature convened a Special Committee on Improving Educational Opportunities in High School.  This committee has been tasked with identifying ways to ensure that Wisconsin’s education system and curriculum prepares students for future workforce needs.  Paul currently serves as the Special Committee’s Vice-Chairman.

In 2011, in recognition of Paul’s commitment to these issues, he was named by Governor Scott Walker as a member of the Governor’s Council on College & Workforce Readiness.  He continues to serve in that capacity today.
