Robertson Announces 2010 Run for State Assembly, District 83

Jan. 10, 2010

Muskego, Wisconsin - January 7, 2010 - Aaron S. Robertson announced today that he will pursue the Democratic Party's nomination this fall in an effort to unseat long-time Republican incumbent Scott Gunderson of the state's 83rd Assembly district.

 

This will be Robertson's second attempt for the 83rd Assembly seat, having faced Gunderson in 2008 and garnering 27% of the vote in that race.

 

Robertson, 27, is a moderate who prides himself on being a negotiator and relationship builder. Much of his campaign will be devoted to education reform and the economy.

 

Residents and business owners in the 83rd will appreciate Robertson's moderate, commonsense approaches to issues like gun rights, healthcare, taxes and the economy, education, and the environment. Constituents will also find desirable his ability to bring many people and viewpoints to the table in an effort to hammer out meaningful solutions to a variety of questions and problems, a skill he has demonstrated on numerous occasions in his various roles through the years.

 

Robertson's announcement is also exciting because it is the first time that a Democratic candidate has returned to face Gunderson, who was first elected to the Assembly in 1994.

 

This past December, Robertson announced that he will be participating in the friendly fundraising competition for the Wisconsin Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's title of Man of the Year for the Milwaukee region this spring.

 

The LLS's Man and Woman of the Year competition is held over a ten week period each spring, and raises critical funds and awareness for such things as medical research, education and outreach, and aid to patients battling leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers. The man and woman who raise the most funds for the local region will go on to compete in a national competition. A separate regional competition in the state will be simultaneously unfolding in the Madison area, with those top fundraisers advancing to the national competition, as well.

 

The 2010 Milwaukee competition will run from March 11th through May 20th.

 

Robertson is a 2007 graduate of Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, where he earned a major in Political Science, minors in Sociology and Philosophy, a certificate in Integrated Leadership, and a non-credit certificate for a course in entrepreneurship. During his time at Stritch, among his other accomplishments, he served as president of the student government, Model United Nations Club, and Philosophy Club, which he co-founded.

 

He is author of the book, Beyond Majors and G.P.A.: A Real Philosophy for College and the World Ahead, which he wrote while still in college; has been a correspondent for the Muskego Chronicle since October 2007, reporting primarily on city government news; and contributes articles on entrepreneurship, business, leadership, history, politics/society, and other topics as a freelance writer.

 

Robertson is co-founder and president of Intrepid Innovations Inc., a firm specializing in Web design, graphic design, Internet marketing, and consulting. The company also operates the Intrepid Networking Club for college students, recent graduates, and young professionals.

 

Additionally, Robertson has been a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals for the City of Muskego since May 2008 and the Census Committee for the Village of Hales Corners since June 2009.

 

Robertson's memberships and affiliations include: Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce (Ambassador); Hales Corners Chamber of Commerce (Board member); Muskego Kiwanis Club (President); Muskego Moose Lodge 1057; PRO Alliances; Milwaukee Area Professionals (MAPs); the Marketing/Promotion Study Group, Mayor's Task Force on Economic Development, City of Muskego; and the National Writers Union, UAW Local 1981.
