Jamie Wall, a business consultant, declares candidacy for Green Bay Senate district

Green Bay business consultant Jamie Wall has announced his candidacy for the 30th Senate District, challenging incumbent Republican Eric Wimberger. Wall, a Democrat, is running to support working individuals who are facing challenges with rising costs of healthcare, child care, and housing in the state. During his campaign kickoff event at CityDeck in Green Bay, Wall emphasized the need for change and expressed his dedication to earning the support of voters in the area.

With a background in strategic planning and business analysis, Wall is familiar with economic development in northeastern Wisconsin. He played a key role in establishing the New North organization. If no other candidates enter the race, Wall will go head-to-head with Wimberger in the November election for the newly redrawn Senate District 30, which includes areas like Green Bay, Ashwaubenon, Allouez, De Pere, and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Senate District 30 was previously predominantly supported by Republicans under old maps. However, new maps have made it more politically competitive as they show a near-even split between Democrats and Republicans in the district. The updated maps encompass areas like Green Bay and Marinette and have changed its political landscape significantly. John Johnson, a research fellow at Marquette University’s Lubar Center has analyzed this shift which makes it an interesting district to watch closely during upcoming elections.
