A Republican from Greenville is running for his fourth term and he’s facing a challenge for his Assembly seat.
Representative Dave Murphy will meet Democrat Diana Lawrence of Appleton in the 56th District.
Murphy says he wants to keep working on an expansion of I-41 in the Fox Cities. He says he wants it to be upgraded to six lanes through Appleton. He says in the meantime, he wants to look at safety improvements. He says that includes ramp extensions for better merging.
Lawrence ran for the seat in 2012 but she didn’t make it through the Democratic primary. She says the problems that were there in 2012 are still happening. Lawrence says one of her top priorities is to get more people involved in the Democratic process. She says health care is another important issue.
