Another DeForest resident, Stephen Ratzlaff, intends to run for the 37th Assembly District seat occupied by Republican Rep. John Jagler.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Ratzlaff is running as an independent. Earlier in the week, DeForest Village Board Trustee Abigail Lowery also announced her candidacy for the position, as she will be running as a Democrat.

The 37th Assembly District encompasses the communities of DeForest and Windsor, as well as Columbus, Waterloo and Watertown. It also represents the northeast of Madison.

Ratzlaff is a furniture sales professional who works at Steinhafels Superstore in Madison. He received an emergency medical technician certificate from Madison Area Technical College.

Jagler has held the seat for the last seven years.
