GREEN BAY, Wis. – State Representative Kristina Shelton (D-Green Bay) announced Wednesday that she will not seek re-election this fall. Since her election to the State Assembly in 2020, Representative Shelton has been a fearless advocate for public schools, economic justice, racial justice, reproductive rights, and more. Rep. Shelton prioritized building lasting relationships and coalitions to help organize for change in the legislature, most notably in the development of the Healthy School Meals For All Coalition consisting of over 80 organizations dedicated to improving access to nutritious school meals.

She released the following statement:

"After much consideration and heartfelt reflection, I am announcing today that I will not be seeking a third term as the State Representative to the 90th Assembly District. This decision has been a difficult one, as it has been an immense privilege to represent the incredible people of Green Bay. My decision to not seek re-election is rooted in my desire to prioritize and devote more time to my family and my professional goals outside of the State Assembly.

“To everyone who has supported me in this role - the people of the 90th, my Democratic colleagues, my incredible staff, my family, and countless community organizers and advocates - I am continually inspired by each of you and look forward to the work ahead as we continue to advance policies and action in pursuit of common good.

“I am deeply thankful for the opportunities to make a positive impact in our community and look forward to continuing to serve the 90th for the remainder of the term. The people of the 90th elected me to be their representative, entrusting me to be their voice in the Capitol. I will forever be grateful and proud to have the unwavering support of such an incredible community. Thank you, Green Bay!”
