Area State Representative Andre Jacque will have competition in the August primary for the vacant 1st Senate district seat. Alex Renard, an operations manager at his family’s Green Bay factory, has announced he’ll run for Senate this Fall. The 24-year old DePere resident said in a statement that he wants to bring private sector business experience and energy to Madison to end what he terms government dysfunction which prevents finding solutions o problems facing the region, state and country. Renard will meet fellow Republican Andre Jacque in the primary to determine the party’s nominee for Frank Lasee’s seat. Lasee vacated the post in December to take a job with the State. No Democrats have registered as candidates up to this point.
