Peshtigo Times: John Gard will not run for governor.
Advertisements [?]

State Assembly Speaker John Gard (R-Peshtigo) officially ended speculation that he would run for governor in 2006 in a statement issued at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, at a press conference in the Ashwaubenon Village Hall in Green Bay.


Gard said, "Recently, there has been a lot of speculation about whether I am going to run for governor in 2006. That speculation is extremely flattering. The very fact that a farm kid from Lena can have his name mentioned seriously as governor of this state tells you all you need to know about the American dream and what a wonderful country we live in.

"Flattering as it is however, I feel an obligation to let my friends, my supporters and my colleagues know that I will not be a candidate for governor in 2006", Gard said.
