Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee) announced Thursday he is seeking re-election for his 98th Assembly District seat in the state legislature.
Neylon, who emerged from a five-person Republican field last year, was elected to the assembly in April 2013 during a special election. There was no Democratic challenger.
He replaced Rep. Paul Farrow, who was voted into the 33rd State Senate District seat in December 2012.
“Since (I was elected) I’ve worked diligently to represent (my constituents') views in Madison," Neylon said. "Together with Gov. Walker and our Republican leadership, we’ve improved our state’s business climate, cut property and income taxes and made Wisconsin a better place to live, work and raise a family.
If re-elected, Neylon said his priorities are simple.
"Eliminate unnecessary red tape for businesses, work with Walker to create the best educational system in the nation, continue to put more money back in the pockets of hard working Wisconsinites and home owners, protect our civil liberties and fight for the unborn at all costs," he said.
The 98th Assembly District consists of Pewaukee, Sussex, the upper half of the City of Waukesha and a small portion of Lisbon.
Neylon is the owner and president of the Neylon Group, a commercial window cleaning company in the City of Waukesha.
Before elected to the state legislature, Neylon spent five years of legislative experience working for Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner and Rep. Bill Kramer. During the 2010 election he served as the Waukesha County field director for the Republican Party of Wisconsin.
Neylon is a member of the Carroll University President’s Advisory Council, Waukesha County Business Alliance, Republican Party of Waukesha County, ABATE of Wisconsin and the National Rifle Association.
